The International Office

In Faroese: Altjóða Skrivstovan, also known as ASK

Some of the functions of the International Office are now being handled by the Faroese Student Grant Fund.

The year 2019 marks a new chapter for the International Office, whose original purpose is to provide guidance and information on opportunities for education in the Faroe Islands and abroad. The decision has been made to relocate this advisory function from the University to the Student Grant Fund, which is part of the Ministry of Education, Research and Culture.
