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 2019 we offer a variety of Icelandic courses from level A1 up to B2 as well as a one-week crash course. 

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 to the left 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 are updated regularly. Please contact if you have any inquiries at all about the courses.
