• Undergraudate degree: Requirements for acceptance to single courses are generally the same as for acceptance to the master’s program in whole, i.e. that applicants have completed undergraduate studies, regardless of whether BA, BSc, BEd, or other equivalent study.
  • Good English skills: It is important for applicants to have a good knowledge of English as all teaching takes place in English.


To apply please send:

  • a complete CV
  • proof of previous or current education in form of certified transcripts 
  • the application form 

per email to no later than one month before the course starts. 


The admission of applicants is subject to the approval of the master's program committee. We encourage all interested parties to contact us and/or apply.


Students enrolled at an Icelandic University: Students at universities in the network of public universities in Iceland (University of Iceland, University of Akureyri, Agricultural University of Iceland, Hólar University College) are excluded from additional course fees but need approval of their home universities. 

International mobility students: Erasmus, Nordplus and North to North program applicants also need to apply using the University Centre application form. Fees are in accordance with the relevant program. 

Others: Fees for other applicants are ISK 10,000 per ECTS unit (a 4 ECTS course would therefore cost ISK 40,000).
