The University of Iceland

The University of Iceland (Háskóli Íslands) was founded on 17 June 1911. The University was located in the Parliament House at Austurvöllur for the first 29 years. The University of Iceland was formed in a merger of the Seminary, the School of Medicine, and the School of Law, which each formed a faculty, in addition to the newly-established Faculty of Philosophy.

Only 45 students, one of which was female, were enrolled during the 1911-1912 academic year; by comparison, the 2018-2019 academic year saw almost thirteen thousand students, around two thirds of which were female, studying at the University of Iceland.

A new structure and governance system for the University of Iceland entered into force on 1July 2008. At the same time the University merged with Iceland University of Education on its centenary. The new University of Iceland has five academic schools, each comprised of a number of faculties. The academic schools are the School of Education, the School of Engineering and Natural Sciences, the School of Health Sciences, the School of Humanities, and the School of Social Sciences. In addition the University operates a number of research and service institutions. The University offers a variety of academic programmes on the undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral levels.

The Rector of the University of Iceland is Jón Atli Benediktsson, Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering. The Dean of the School of Education is Kolbrún Þ. Pálsdóttir.
