Icelandic Courses

The Westfjords are an especially exciting place to learn Icelandic.  This huge peninsula with its forty-nine deep fjords, remote from the rest of the country, preserves the old Iceland and the original Iceland.

 

This summer we offer a variety of Icelandic courses; three-week courses, one-week course, advanced course and a course in Gísla saga and classical Icelandic language.

 

The University Centre of the Westfjords invites you to join in a friendly learning atmosphere where class work, group work, and fieldwork are combined. Our progressive teaching style follows modern trends. 


 

We look forward to welcoming you to many inspiring Icelandic language and culture courses in the magnificent setting of the Westfjords!

Our community

"The contents of our studies work great with the location! Smart, ad-venturous and like minded people come here from around the world. I love that the program is cross disciplinary and that we have a lot of one-to-one time with our instructors when they are here. I am more committed to UW than to my home university."
Ryan O┤Connell, Canada, CMM student 2010-2011
