Application deadline extended to April 15 for citizens of countries outside the EU/EEA area

The normal application deadline for citizens from countries outside the EU/EEA is February 15. However, in light of COVID-19 the University Centre of the Westfjords has decided to extend this deadline until April 15 (which is the EU/EEA citizen deadline).

Please note that the reason for the earlier application deadline of February 15 is the fact that non-EU/EEA citizens need to gather multiple documentations for their student residence permits. This process can be time-consuming and therefore we urge applicants to begin working on their residence permits as soon as possible. Applicants should start working on their residence permit application while gathering documents for their program application and NOT wait until receiving our acceptance letter. If you follow this process you should have enough time to gather the necessary documents for the residence permit.

Please find information about the residence permit application process on the Icelandic Directorate of Immigration website.
