In the current academic year students of the University of Silesia who are interested in the culture and history of medieval Scandinavia are being offered a unique chance to participate in three different modules taught by leading scholars from the University of Iceland in Reykjavik and the University of Oslo.

This possibility of studying the society, culture, beliefs and literature of the Viking-age Scandinavia has been made possible due to academic co-operation of the University of Silesia and its partners in Iceland and Norway. The co-operation and student and staff mobility is taking place under the auspices of the so-called Norway Grants (The Stipend and Scholarship Fund / Fundusz Stypendialny i Szkoleniowy). The programme also involves student exchange and the participants of the modules will be able to develop their interest further by applying for one term exchange in Reykjavik and Oslo.
