Tuition fees at university in Iceland

There are no tuition fees at public universities in Iceland. However, you will have to pay a compulsory, non-refundable registration fee. In most cases, the registration fee ranges from 100 EUR to 250 EUR.

If you intend to study at a private higher education institution, you will have to pay tuition and registration fees. Tuition fees vary depending on the institution and study program, but in general, EU students pay lower tuition fees than non-EU students according to the list below:

  • EU students usually pay an estimated tuition fee that ranges from 30 EUR per credit to 60 EUR per credit
  • Non-EU students are charged an estimated tuition fee that ranges from 100 EUR per credit to150 EUR per credit

We recommend you contact the institution you are interested in and ask for the exact tuition fee for the study program of your choice.

Please note that, in Europe, an academic year is worth 60 ECTS.
