Academic counselling

Career and guidance counsellors at the UISCCC provide information on available academic programmes and assist individuals during their choice process. This applies to both registered students and others who are looking for an appropriate study programme.

Advice on academic choices takes place either in a personal interview where the counsellor seeks to identify interests, skills and values of each individual.

The following career and guidance counsellors offer students at the University of Iceland individual interviews on career counselling: Ásta Gunnlaug Briem, Inga Berg Gísladóttir, Jóhanna Sólveig Lövdahl, Jónína Ólafsdóttir Kárdal, Kristjana Mjöll Sigurðardóttir, Laufey Guðný Kristinsdóttir and Lýdía Kristín Sigurðardóttir.
