Graduation

Graduation June 2018

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 next graduation takes place on 27 June 2020.

The University of Iceland spring graduation ceremony will be held in two stages in Laugardalshöll on 27 June. As the government's decision to relax restrictions on mass gatherings has made this possible.

The first ceremony will be held at 10 for candidates graduating from undergraduate and graduate studies from the Schools of Health Sciences and Engineering and Natural Sciences. The second one starts at 1.30 P.M. for candidates graduating from undergraduate and graduate studies from the Schools of Education, Humanities, and Social Sciences. No guests are invited to attend the cermonies, however, there will be live streaming for families and friends online.

Students due to graduate received a letter with further details:

Letters to candidates from the Schools of Health Sciences and Engineering and Natural Sciences

Letters to candidates from the Schools of Education, Humanities, and Social Sciences

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 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.
