The University of Iceland is a progressive educational and scientific institution, renowned in the global scientific community for its research. It is a state university, situated in the heart of Reykjavík, the capital of Iceland. A modern, diversified, and rapidly developing institution, the University of Iceland offers opportunities for study and research in over 400 programmes spanning most fields of science and scholarship within five schools: Social Sciences, Humanities, Education, Health Sciences and Natural Sciences and Engineering.

The School of Education is the leading institution in education studies and well-being in Iceland and has an important sociological role regarding the education of teachers, social educators, leisure professionals, sports and health scientists as well as pedagogy and education studies. All academic programs at the School of Education are strongly linked to the workplaces of the professions the school educates, such as schools and other societal institutions. The School of Education is divided into four faculties: the faculty of education and diversity, faculty of education and pedagogy, faculty of health promotion, sport and leisure studies and faculty of subject teacher education. The faculty at the School of Education comes from diverse scholarly and vocational disciplines, providing a truly interdisciplinary training and research in the field of education. As a result, research collaboration is common, both domestically and with researchers and teams in Europe and USA.
