Icelandic as a Second Language is intended for students whose native language is not Icelandic.
A wide range of Icelandic courses are offered in preparation for study in Icelandic upper secondary schools, where all courses are taught in Icelandic.
To apply you need to have another native language than Icelandic. According to Icelandic laws younger students have a higher priority to get into the programme.
After completing the programme students are expected to be prepared to start their education at the upper secondary school level or to have improved their Icelandic skills enough to enter the job market.
Many students who have sufficiently advanced Icelandic skills register for other study programmes at Technical College Reykjavík parallel to their Icelandic studies.
