Ísafjörður is an especially exciting place to learn Icelandic. A friendly small town in the magnificent surroundings of the remote Westfjords. 

In 2020 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 us in a friendly learning atmosphere where class work, group work, and fieldwork are combined. Our progressive teaching style follows modern trends.
