Study Programmes


This School has four study programmes: Design and Innovation, Academic studies for matriculation examination, a Special Education programme and Icelandic as a second language.

Stu­dents graduating with a mat­riculation certificate from the Technical Col­lege Reykjavik have the advantage of stu­dents graduating from tra­diti­onal Icelandic upper secondary schools in that they have completed courses from two study programmes. The education tow­ards the mat­riculation exam­ination is supp­lementary to the vocati­onal branch that the stu­dents choose, such as design, computer studies, cabinet making etc.

Stu­dents can also mat­riculate within the branch of natural sciences with a specialisation in aeronautics, electro-technical studies, marine eng­ineering or engine technology.
