In study sessions both on-campus and distance students are expected to attend classes in Akureyri. The sessions will be approximately one week long, once or twice each semester.
New students are invited to attend induction/orientation days at UNAK in August. During the induction/orientation days the students receive an introduction to UNAK's computer system, library and student services. They also get an opportunity to meet their classmates and key persons of the staff. The first lectures of fall semester courses are held in connection with the induction/orientation days.
