"I have worked at the University of Iceland for 28 years and it has never been more enjoyable. The place is full of life. The energy is incredible. Research is blossoming, teaching methods are improving, and the exterior facilities are among the most stylish in the world," says Ólafur Þ. Harðarson, Professor of Political Science and Dean of the School of Social Sciences. "Many teachers at the university are the foremost scholars in their fields and most of them have completed doctorates at respected universities abroad, to the east and to the west."
