To be accepted to the Marine Innovation program applicants must have completed bachelor’s level university study, regardless of whether BA, BSc or BEd. The master’s committee applies further rules on entrance and the maximum number of students. Students submit an application form and must also each submit a cover letter in which they say a bit about themselves, their circumstances, why they want to enroll in this particular program and what expectations they have of it. The application must also include an introduction to the innovation project the student wishes to pursue alongside the courses. It is normal for the project and its implementation to develop as the program progresses.

The teaching schedule is personally tailored to each student. It is anticipated that students should have good knowledge of Icelandic and English in order to take full advantage of all that the program has to offer.
