Studies at upper secondary and university level

You can study and maintain your full unemployment allowances under the following conditions:

  • If you want to study on a University level you can take up to 12 ECTS units per semester. You have to inform a counsellor by sending a confirmation from the school via email to international@vmst.is 
  • If you want to study at an upper secondary level, you can only take 1/3 of units scheduled in your school per semester at night school or distance learning and you must sign a study contract. To do that please contact a counselor by sending email to international@vmst.is.

 

Under special circumstances it is possible to take more units than described above. In those situations, unemployment benefits are reduced according to the units of the courses. In the link below you can receive more information about it:
