About the Programme

This international two-year Nordic Master’s Program offers an interdisciplinary approach to Viking and Medieval Scandinavia by drawing on expertise in the fields of Norse literature (including the Eddas and sagas), linguistics, history, textual criticism, palaeography, runology, folklore, religion, art and archaeology at four different Nordic universities, Aarhus University, University of Copenhagen, and University of Oslo, and associated research institutes. Two of these, the Árni Magnússon Institute for Icelandic Studies in Iceland and the Arnamagnæan Institute at the University of Copenhagen, share custody of the largest single collection of Icelandic medieval manuscripts in the world, the Árni Magnússon Collection that was inscribed on the UNESCO Memory of the World Register in 2009.



There are no tuition fees charged in the Viking and Medieval Norse Studies programme. This applies equally to students of all nationalities. The University of Iceland charges an annual registration fee of ISK 75,000 (approximately 530 EUR or 600 USD depending on the exchange rate). 


The application deadline is February 1st of every year. Please see our Entry Requirements and Application Requirements.
