Specifically if you are experiencing emotional distress, such as increased anxiety or depressive symptoms, than you have these options as well:

Psychological counselling
Katrín Sverrisdóttir, a clinical psychologist, works at the UISCCC and provides a short-term, individual psychological counselling. At the UISCCC we offer our students group counselling in test-anxiety and how to overcome low self-esteem, since these factors can be an obstacle while studying. The group counselling is in Icelandic. It is required to make an appointment in advance at the UISCCC office, tel. 525-4315. Consultation hours: Tue. and Wed.: 09:00 – 16:00 and Fri.: 10:00 – 12:00.

Studying at a university is a time of change for an individual. Events such as moving away from home or starting a family are examples of such changes. Students can also experience their academic studies as being quite demanding. These factors together or seperately can lead to a period of emotional or psychological distress and be disruptive while studying.

The Student Psychology Clinic
The Student Psychology Clinic provides psychological counselling to university students and their children under the supervision of licensed psychologists. The Student Psychology Clinic is located at Aragata 14, telephone number is 856-2526. For further information.

Am I at the right place?
If your inquiry concerns the assessment of prior studies, between faculties or from other schools, checking your academic record before graduation or the structure of individual courses you should seek assistance at the faculty of question.
