Destination Iceland

For centuries, Icelanders have pursued a wide range of studies abroad, bringing back knowledge from all parts of the world. Until recently, foreign students coming to this country have been mainly interested in Icelandic language and literature. Now, through participation in various international exchange programs, systematic student exchanges are opening up new channels of cooperation. This little book is meant to assist visiting students upon their arrival in Iceland. It deals with such issues as: residence and work permits, higher education institutions, health care, social security, banks and accounts, communications and collective traffic, leisure, history and culture of Iceland, geographical facts and climate.
