New Students

Welcome to the Agricultural University of Iceland


AUI is a small university that receives about 20-30 exchange students per semester. It is located in the countryside and at the moment there are very limited transport between Hvanneyri and the nearest village Borgarnes that is in aprox 20km distance. It is possible to get a bus to Hvanneyri from Borgarnes in the evening during weekdays and that means that students have to rely on getting a ride with students or staff to get to Borgarnes.  

International coordinator and students buddy takes care of helping students arrange those trips.

Nearest grocery shop, pharmacy, health clinic and sports facilities are also located in Borgarnes.

The estimated cost of living in Iceland, calculations made by the Icelandic Student Loan Fund, is about ISK 140,600 per month for one person. You can expect the rent for a single room will be at least ISK 75,000 per month. See Living in Iceland webpage for more information.
