Academic Services

Academic Services is responsible for information on students; including course history, enrolment in and withdrawals from courses, and grade registration.

Academic Services handles enrolment and graduation and supervises the academic schedule, preparation of timetables, classroom arrangements and teaching assessment for courses. Examination schedules are published approximately four weeks before the start of examinations; the final examination period is included in the schedule for each academic year.

Ugla and Canvas are the electronic learning environments (LMS) for students and teachers. Teachers make study materials available in Canvas, use it to hand out additional material and assignments, accept submissions of completed assignments and provide feedback. Ugla contains a variety of information, such as teaching plans and various notifications, discussion forums for individual courses and more.

Formal graduations from Bifröst University take place in February, June and September (not an ceremony in September) each year. Registration for graduation takes place by electronic means and notifications are sent to students.

Upon graduation, students receive a graduate certificate, two copies of their course history (in Icelandic and English with ranking) and a Diploma Supplement. The"Diploma Supplement is issued in English. The Diploma Supplement is a description of the studies students have completed and also contains a short description of the Icelandic higher education system and its structure. Students generally submit the Diploma Supplement when applying for admission to universities abroad.

Academic Services receives formal matters from students and decides accordingly as relevant. Should a student not accept the decision, s/he is entitled to appeal to the Appeals Committee.
