University of Iceland

| About

The UND and University of Iceland exchange program was first signed in 2000 establishing the mobility of students between the two institutions. This program offers UND students the opportunity to study in a uniquely beautiful location. 

| Location

Iceland is home to 311,000 people; it offers a wealth of outdoor activities including glacier tours, horseback riding, skiing and fishing. The University of Iceland’s main campus is in Vatnsmyri and Reykjavik West. According to legend Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland, was first settled in 871 AD by a Norwegian fugitive. In the 1750s the foundations for a self-sufficient Reykjavik were established through the building of factories for weaving, tanning, and wool-dyeing. Reykjavik, the largest city in Iceland with one third of the population of Iceland, has much to offer visitors with the natural beauty of the Blue Lagoon and Northern Lights to cultural activities and an active nightlife. There  is something for everyone including theaters, restaurants, cafes, parks and shopping. Cultural events and activities take place year-round. 

| Academics

The University of Iceland was established in 1911 with the founding faculties of Medicine, Theology, Law and Philosophy, since then the university has grown and expanded and now has more than 13,000 students and more than 150 undergraduate programs. Although most programs are taught in Icelandic, there are a number of courses offered in English each year in areas of study consisting of: 
* Education
