Undergraduate Studies

International students can complete a BA degree in Icelandic as a Second Language to acquire the basic knowledge and theoretical skills to continue academic studies in Icelandic. Another possibility is the Practical Diploma in Icelandic as a Second Language, a practical language programme for beginners, which focuses on developing skills in speaking, writing and understanding modern Icelandic.

The following programmes can be completed by international students provided they meet language proficiency criteria as required by each programme:

It takes three (180 ECTS) or four years (240 ECTS) of full-time study to complete undergraduate programmes. Degree programmes can have one Major (180 or 240 ECTS), two Majors (120 + 120 ECTS) or a Major and Minor (120 + 60 ECTS). Diplomas can be shorter. Courses completed for diploma studies can be transferred to count towards a degree programme, on certain conditions. Degree programmes as well as diplomas can have different areas of specialization.
