Proof of English proficiency requirements

Applicants whose native language is not English, are required to provide proof of English proficiency in the form of TOEFL ibt (in test centre or home), IELTS Academic (in test centre), Cambridge English (CAE or CPE) or PTE Academic (in test centre or online).

Please note that your scores from the English tests are only valid if it is possible for the University of Akureyri (UNAK) to verify them online. If you have a Cambridge English (CAE or CPE) score you must agree to share the result with UNAK.

It is important to attach the test score sheet to the online application form or a confirmation of your test registration. If you fail to prove your proficiency in English before the deadline, your application cannot be processed.
