Supporting Documents

An application is not valid until certified transcripts of the applicant's previous education or degree diploma(s) are received by the University of Iceland, along with any supporting documents required. The deadline for submitting supporting documents is specified in the confirmation email received when submitting an application.

A certified transcript is a hard copy document issued by the educational institution on its official paper, signed and certified by the institution with the institution’s stamp in colour, or otherwise certified by an accredited, official authority.

Photocopied or scanned diplomas or transcripts are not certified copies and therefore invalid.


Note: Only some study programmes can be taught in English and are offered to international students. All other study programmes are entirely taught in Icelandic, require Icelandic proficiency, and may not be available to international students.
