Field schools

The University Centre of the Westfjords offers full service for field schools, study tours and other educational travel programs organized by universities and institutions both in Iceland and abroad. Ísafjörður is a popular destination for visiting students. The sorrounding nature is spectacular, the town is cozy and picturesque, shops and services are all within walking distance, and the University Centre's facilities are spacious and welcoming.

The University Centre gladly assists universities in delivering their own course content in Ísafjörður or other parts of the Westfjords. The centre also offers "ready-made" educational day tours in Ísafjörður and  the vicinity.

The University Center has hosted many successful study tours and some universities have visitied the center with their fields schools on a regular basis for a number of years. On the left hand side of this page you will find links to some of the field schools and programs that the University Centre has hosted.

For further information on fields schools and other travel study programs, please contact Astrid Fehling, Project Manager, astrid@uw.is.
