Tengivirkið - Young People Connect

Thursday May 12th 2022

Today at Tengivirkið we will receive a presentation from Johnathan Wood, an Equal rights officer of the National Union for Icelandic Students and a volunteer at Student Refugees Icelandwho will tell us about the two organisations. 

At Student Refugees Iceland, refugees and asylum seekers can get help with seeking higher education programmes in Iceland. ,,Therefore, the platform Student Refugees seeks to provide all the relevant information about how to fulfil requirements and apply for a higher education in Iceland. Moreover, Student Refugees provides information on overcoming common obstacles that refugees and asylum seekers run into when trying to access higher education.,,

The National Union of Icelandic Students is the umbrella organisations for all student unions at universities in Iceland  and it's mainly safeguards the rights of students in Iceland and Icelandic students abroad.
