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.

In 2016 we offer a variety of Icelandic courses; three-week courses, one-week course, intermediate course and advanced courses.

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.

For all further information about each course please take a look at the menu above or click the links below. Please note that some of the information may be from last year, however the outline of the courses will be the same so the info is still relevant. Information will be updated as soon as possible.
