All applications are electronic (button on top of page visible when accepted). Applications are accepted from mid-March each year. For further information, please contact Pétur Kristinn Pétursson: [email protected]
Applications are processed after the application deadline (usually end of May) and applicants that fulfill the admission requirements and pay the confirmation fee are accepted.
Only one group of students is admitted per year and the courses start in the beginning of September.
The programme is 2400 hrs. Taught every weekday from 08:00 – 16:30, on site. It is organised into three phases:
- Phase 1: Academic courses – September to end of May, the first year.
- Phase 2: Practical courses – September to January, the second year.
- Phase 3: Internship – March to December, the second and third year.
After completing their courses in school, students start a separate apprenticeship. The above-mentioned studies qualify the students for such an apprenticeship with an accepted and accredited Part 145 maintenance facility as an aircraft maintenance engineering apprentice. Students get assistance with finding these apprenticeship placements.
All the courses are taught in Iceland but in English. Fully equipped facilities for academic and practical teaching are in Reykjavík. Part of the courses are taught at the Aviation Museum in Akureyri and at various maintenance firms.
The total tuition fee for the study programme is 4.950.000 ISK. Included in this price are all courses, materials and teaching materials. The payment process is as follows:
Students pay a confirmation fee of 300.000 ISK after their application is approved. By paying this fee, the student commits to starting the study programme and paying the rest of the tuition. The confirmation fee is not repayable, nor can it be used as payment for other courses at Technical College Reykjavík should the student change study programmes.
At the start of each of the five semesters, students pay 740.000 ISK (due date September 5th and February 5th) and at the end of the last semester, students pay the last payment of 950.000 ISK before graduation.
This study programme is funded entirely by tuition fees so their payment is the prerequisite for students being able to continue their studies and graduate. Menntasjóður (the Icelandic Student Loan Fund) lends for this study programme according to their allocation rules.
