  《冰島簡介》

地理:

 

  冰島位於北美洲與歐洲大陸之間,東距挪威約950公里,

 

離西邊最接近的大陸格陵蘭(Greenland)也有286公里。全國

 

東西長500公里,南北約300公里,其大小約為台灣的3倍

 

大。冰島大約形成於1600-2000萬年前的海底火山爆發運動,

 

就地質上而言,仍是相當年輕的國家,地底活動相當平凡。

 

 

氣候:

  冰島的地理位置雖然靠近北極圈,但因全年受到北大西洋

 

暖流影響,屬於較特別的「夏冷冬暖」氣候型態。在最寒冷的

 

一月份裡,雷克雅維克(Reykjavík)氣溫約與丹麥的哥本哈根相當,

 

平均溫度在-0.5℃左右,並不算嚴寒(與其他高緯度國家比較)但

 

7、8月平均溫則僅約11℃ ,加上冰島地勢空曠、四周一無屏障,

 

即使在夏天,陣陣海風能極為刺骨,需穿著保暖的衣物才不致受寒。

 

 

 時區:

      與格林威治標準時間(GMT)相同,即台灣時間減8小時。

 

 

語言:

 

         冰島語為官方語言。英語和丹麥語是小學級中學的必修

 

課程,因此當地人也多半會說這兩種語言。

 

       餐廳的菜單上至少都有冰島文及英文兩種標示,觀光景點的

 

文宣及解說牌同時標示冰島文及英文,只要略通英文,在冰島

 

就可以暢行無阻。

 

 

 

 

貨幣:

 

冰島克朗(Icelandic Krona),簡稱Kr或Ikr,

 

在國際貨幣市場通常以 ISK表示。

 

 

1.00  TWD

3.87318  ISK

1.位置與交通:

 

(冰島西部海岸區)

 

  學校坐落於Norðurárdalur山谷,離波迦尼斯(Borgarnes)

 

北邊約300公里。(波迦尼斯(Borgarnes)為冰島西部重要交通

 

樞紐,這裡公路發達,有許多條路線通達冰島西部各鄉鎮。)

 

離冰島首都雷克雅維克(Reykjavík)約110公里。

 6.常見Q&A

 

Q: Does my home university need to be a formal

partner of Bifröst for me to be eligible to enroll in the

exchange program?

     Yes. Bifröst limits enrollment in its exchange program

to its partner institutions' students. If you would like to attend

our program but your school is not in partnership with us, we

encourage you to contact your international office to let them

know of your interest in Bifröst, and you are welcome to let us

know as well.

 

Q: How do I get to Iceland and once there, to Bifröst?

     Most students fly to Iceland. Icelandair and IcelandExpress 

are the main airlines making scheduled flights to Iceland.

The former offers more frequent flights out of a number of

cities in Europe as well as the US. IcelandExpress is a low-fare

airline which sells tickets on a one-way basis. There are

scheduled buses to Bifröst daily. However, they are limited

so you might have to check in at a hostel for a night or so.

 

Q: How do I go about securing accommodation at Bifröst?

     We arrange on-campus housing for all exchange

students. In the application form please select the type of

room you would prefer. Most students choose a

single room in student apartments (with private bath and

shared kitchen) or in traditional dormitories (with shared

bath and shared kitchen). Double rooms are also

available for couples. Occasionally, exchange students

wish to share a room with another student from their home

institution and this is also possible if both students

request it. Your accommodation request will be processed by

the student housing authority and will be confirmed a few

weeks before your arrival. You will be asked to pay the first

month's rent the first business day after arrival by bank transfer,

cash, or credit card.

 

Q: What is the rent for a typical room on campus?

     The table below lists the types of rooms most

commonly rented by exchange students, and the monthly

prices in effect from 1 September 2008 (click for current exchange rates).

Room sizes are approximate. Heat, hot water, electricity,

and Internet access is included in the price. All rooms

include basic furnishings (bed, desk, chair, clothes closet).

All rooms have access to a kitchen which is shared

with other rooms and equipped with pots, dishes, etc.

Please contact us with any questions or special needs

(for example, we also have family apartments for students

with children). 

 

Q: How far is the student housing from the university buildings?

      All student housing is within 300 metres (1/4 mile)

from the school and lecture buildings. So students can

walk to and from their homes to attend classes.

 

Q: Do I need to bring a laptop with me to Bifröst?

     The entire study system at Bifröst is based on students

having permanent access to a wireless laptop. In other words,

you have to have one! If you do not personally own a

laptop and there is no possibility that you can borrow one

to bring with you, Bifröst can lend you one for the duration

of your stay, for a modest fee.

 

Q: How many credits do I need to register for at Bifröst?

     The general rule is that we expect all our exchange

students to participate in courses on an equal footing with

our local students. Therefore, 30 ECTS credits are the

expected workload for all incoming students in the

fall and spring terms. However, exceptions can be

made in extenuating circumstances. During the summer

term, when courses are taught consecutively, exchange

students normally take only one course at a time, but may

stay for as long as they wish.

 

Q: Will I need to pay tuition and/or fees for my stay in Bifröst?

     If you are a registered student at one of Bifröst's

partner schools tuition will be waived. Fees that you will

incur are a deposit for an electronic key (refundable upon

its undamaged return), fees for the use of the copy machine

(optional), and the fee for borrowing a laptop computer if needed.

 

Q: Are there any scholarships available to international students coming to Bifröst?

     Unfortunately Bifröst University cannot award any

kind of scholarships to incoming international students.

We suggest you check with organizations in your local

communities for available scholarships for study

abroad periods. Students coming from within the EU can

also apply for a grant from the SOCRATES programme in

their home country.

 

Q: Can I enroll directly in your bachelor's and master's programs?

     Yes. More information can be seen at

Master's Programmes.

 

Q: Will I take courses with Icelanders or just with other exchange students?

     Exchange students take the same courses as Icelandic

students. The only course that is specifically for exchange

students is in Icelandic language and culture.  Most of the

courses in English are elective courses for Icelandic students

in the third year of their bachelor's program.

 

Q: What kind of facilities are available on the campus? 

     The campus village has a population of around

800 people during the school year. Many Icelandic students

bring their families with them to live on campus, so in

addition to the university buildings there is a kindergarten

on the campus. Furthermore there is a small food and 

book store, a café/pub, a laundry room, a bank machine,

and a gym and sauna with hot pools which is open to 

students and their families free of charge. Students

generally go in to the nearby town of Borgarnes once

a week to shop at the supermarkets there.

  

Q: How far is Bifröst from the nearest town/city?

     The town of Borgarnes (population 1800) is the nearest

to Bifröst, 30 km away (19 miles). In Borgarnes you'll

find most necessary services such as a pharmacy, doctor,

larger grocery stores, a swimming pool, video store,

banking and auto repair. Reykjavík, the capital, is about

110 km (68 miles) from Bifröst. We recommend that you

plan to stay at least one weekend there during your

stay in Iceland. It is an exciting city with endless opportunities

for dining, cinema, theater, movies, art exhibitions and clubbing.

  

Q: Do you offer an Icelandic language course for Erasmus students?

     Yes. There is one course in Icelandic language

each semester. Icelandic culture and language.
