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.
All applications go through the Directorate of Education on this website where you can also follow the status of your application. You need an electronic ID (Íslykill or Rafræn skilríki) in order to apply.
If you need assistance with your application to the programme, you can contact Jóna Dís Bragadóttir.
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.
