Thanks to the Vikings, Iceland isn’t named after the fact that it’s an icy place (at least not anymore). But, make no mistake – Iceland has plenty of snow and glaciers, just like its ice-covered counterpart, Greenland. Iceland is also a place full of mythical wonders, located in the North Atlantic Ocean, with active volcanoes and glacial rivers covering its tiny land area – a land of fire and ice, if you will. Ranking number 3 on the World Happiness Index, Iceland is home to peaceful and adventurous people. For international students, if you want to find a unique place to pursue your Master’s or Bachelor’s degree, you’ll find plenty of mountains to climb in Iceland. Iceland’s higher education is relatively recent. In fact, their first university was founded in 1911. This means that Iceland’s universities were formed in a modern context, rather than an ancient or medieval one. For students, that means you’re entering an environment where universities are interested in staying relevant, current, and innovative. Rather than relying on old traditions and systems, Iceland universities are interested in providing interesting programmes to prepare you for a 21st century environment. So, if you’re looking for a place to study and advance your career potential, sail on over to Iceland to enroll in one of their wonderful university programmes.
