Summer courses abroad

Summer courses abroad - Available at University of Iceland

Summer courses are a good way for students to take a part of their studies abroad and they can be an ideal opportunity for those who are not able to go abroad for a semester or the academic full year. Students who are interested in getting credits from summer courses transferred back into their UI degree must consult their faculties before departure. Students fill in a learning agreement that is approved by the relevant faculty. The International Office oversees applications and nominations to the following summer programmes:
