Geographically, Iceland may be one of Europe’s most exciting places. Glaciers, volcanoes, geysers, vast picturesque landscapes in virtually any colour you can imagine. And there are a handful of great universities, as well!
Iceland is a large country, but with just a small population of around 360,000. There are barely a dozen universities in the country, but they offer a variety of degree programmes. The largest institution - with around 14,000 students - is the University of Iceland in the country’s capital Reykjavík.
Public universities in Iceland do not charge tuition fees, only small application and registration fees. Even private universities like Reykjavík University have comparably modest fees in international comparison.
However, living costs in Iceland are very high. As a small remote country, many goods and foods need to be imported expensively. Even if you can study tuition-free, a longer stay may require you to carefully plan your finances.
Iceland is notoriously remote and hard to reach; and that certainly is part of its appeal. The only relevant international airport is Keflavík (near Reykjavík). Within Iceland, you can get from town to town via bus lines or domestic flights.
