Graduation - Available at University of Iceland

Graduation ceremonies are held two times each year, in February and June. Students completing their degree studies in September can nevertheless obtain their degree certificates in October

The graduation from undergraduate- and graduate studies at the University of Iceland this summer takes place on Saturday, 25 June 2022 at Frjálsíþróttahöllin in Laugardalur (the new Laugardalshöll).

The graduation ceremony will be held in two stages as usual, and is now open to both graduates and their guests (max two guests per graduate).

University staff will be on site to assist and guide candidates on seating arrangements.

Degree Certificates and Diploma Supplements

According to the rules of the University, the Diploma Supplement is issued in a widely spoken European language, given automatically and free of charge to every student upon graduation.

Students receive their Degree Certificate and the Diploma Supplement at graduation. The Diploma Supplement provides a standardised description of the nature, level, context, content, and status of the study programme completed. The Diploma Supplement also contains a transcript of records.

The Degree Certificate is issued in Icelandic with a certified translation into English, but the Diploma Supplement is issued in Icelandic and English. If the student is not present at the graduation ceremony, she or he can collect the graduation papers during office hours at their Faculty, after the ceremony.

Candidates are advised to preserve their Degree Certificates well! Each degree certificate is only issued in a single copy, signed by the respective head of faculty. The degree certificate is never, under any circumstances re-issued.  It is the responsibility of the candidate to safeguard the certificate.
