Additional Information

Students attending Reykjavik University will be charged for 12 credits of in-state tuition and academic fees. It is unlikely that students will have access to university housing, so most often students need to secure lodging on their own for the term abroad. Reykjavik University staff have resources to try and assist students with this process. Accommodation costs are paid by the student directly to the housing provider.
