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.

They are taught in modules in the autumn, spring and summer semesters. All teaching takes place in English, as the student group is usually international and teachers come from all over the world. The courses are suitable for employee development/training; they are multidisciplinary and therefore suitable for individuals with varying backgrounds career paths.

Further information on organisation of the courses can be found in the teaching schedule 2021-2022 and the teaching schedule 2022-2023.

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

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