Quality Board for Higher Education in Iceland

Publication of Institutional Review of University of Iceland

The Quality Board has published a report on the QEF2 Institution-Wide Review of University of Iceland.


The report details the findings of the Institution-Wide Review process for University of Iceland in the second cycle of the Quality Enhancement Framework for Icelandic Higher Education (QEF2). The process began with University of Iceland ’s submission of a Reflective Analysis in 2019, but a site visit could not be conducted in 2020 due to the effects of COVID-19. A virtual review visit was conducted in lieu of a site visit by the Review Team in May 2021.

The report details University of Iceland’s numerous strengths, as well as areas for improvement noted by the Review Team. The report concludes with judgments on the University's arrangements to secure the academic standards of its awards; and its arrangements to secure the quality of the student learning experience.

 The report in full is available in English here

 An Icelandic summary of the report and its outcomes is available here
