Iceland School of Energy

All accepted students are automatically considered for the following scholarships upon applying. There is no additional application. We encourage all applicants to focus on compiling their best work, for a chance at reduced tuition fees.

Reykjavik University Dean's List 

Every semester the student the highest cumulative grade point average in each class has the chance to be on the Dean's List and have their tuition fees for the next semester waived.

To be eligible for the Dean's List, full-time Iceland School of Energy students must have completed at least 15 credits (30 ECTS). Only courses completed by students during the regular examination period, or earlier, are taken into account. When calculating average grades, only first-time attempts at passing exams apply, that is, repeat examinations do not apply. However, examinations taken due to illness at the time of the regular examination do apply.
