Open Courses

All master’s level courses at the University Centre of the Westfjords are open to participants from other universities and the world of work. The courses are a part of our two international multidisciplinary master’s programs, Coastal and Marine Management and Coastal Communities and Regional Development. Any person who wishes to participate in a course at UWestfjords needs to apply directly to UWestfjords. All applications are processed by the master´s programme committee. 

Courses are taught in modules and all teaching takes place in English, as the student group is usually international and teachers come from all over the world. Further information on organisation of the courses can be found in the course schedules for 2022-2023 and 2023-2024.

Courses fulfil the criteria of several trades unions for educational grants. 

The application deadline for single courses is two month before the course begins.
