International Students


International students are a valued part of Bifröst’s student population. The university offers courses taught in English as part of its undergraduate degree programs that are open to Icelandic and international students alike.


Students from Bifröst’s partner schools can apply to spend a semester at Bifröst University as part of their studies. Bifröst also runs an international summer school, open to all students who have completed at least one year of an undergraduate degree (two years of a US college degree).


For students wishing to study at Bifröst during the spring semester, October 15th is the application deadline. The application deadline for the fall semester is May 15th.


Bifröst’s International Office is responsible for managing all student and teacher exchanges at the university. We can also assist prospective students with practical matters relating to study at Bifröst, including applications for visas and residence permits.
