Credit Transfer

In accordance with University of Iceland regulations, individual faculties are permitted to grant credit for courses or studies which a student has completed at another faculty or university.

Students shall apply for such evaluation to the faculty, which decides whether the respective courses should be credited, and, in that case, how many credits they should be worth. The faculty shall seek the assessment of a teacher in the specific subject prior to making a decision.

When handling requests for transfer credit, University faculties must comply with the international agreements concerning university education accreditation to which Iceland is a party, such as the Lisbon convention and the Nordic Education Ministers' Reykjavík Declaration.
