What are Iceland’s most famous universities? Topuniversitieslist attempts to address this issue by releasing the 2022 Icelandic University Ranking, which includes seven Icelandic higher education institutions that fulfill the Topuniversitieslist quality criteria:

  • being chartered, registered, or certified by the relevant Icelandic higher education-related institution, and providing at least four-year undergraduate degrees (bachelor degrees) or postgraduate degrees (master or doctoral degrees) in a conventional, face-to-face, non-distance education style.

7 Universities in Iceland are included in the Topuniversitieslist League Table and University Ranking.
