The University of the Faroe Islands (Fróðskaparsetur Føroya) offers two continuous bachelor level courses in Faroese language for foreigners.
The aim of the courses is to give students insight in the Faroese language and language use. Focus is mainly on speaking, listening and reading, and partly also on writing.
The courses are designed as distance education but the students have the opportunity to meet at the beginning, halfway through and towards the end of the course.
Two BA level courses are available. Entry requirements for the first level are an upper secondary education diploma or equivalent qualification. Applicants for the second level must have completed the first level or a summer course in Faroese. Each course lasts one semester.
