The University of Iceland opens its doors to the public and invites the general public to get to know the University of Iceland's wide range of studies on Saturday 4 March between 12 and 3 p.m. The University of Iceland offers almost 400 undergraduate and graduate studies. Representatives from various support services will be present at the University Centre for advice, and information on the manifold service and the colourful social life open to University students.
The University Day is a collaboration of all Icelandic universities and is a key event for those considering higher education. It is a great pleasure for students and staff at all of the five University schools to welcome guests again on campus for an open day, but this day has, for the last two years, been online due to restrictions on gatherings during the pandemic.
Course promotion takes place all over campus and research scientists and students from all University Faculties answer questions on just about anything!
Presentation of study programmes is by school and is located in the following buildings:
Social Sciences: University Centre, 2nd floor
Health Sciences: University Centre, 2nd floor
Humanities: Main Building, 2nd floor
Educational Sciences: Gróska
Engineering and Natural Sciences: Askja (with the exception of software engineering and computer science in Gróska).
