Erasmus+ Iceland 2017

Iceland Placement July 2017


2 of our Healthcare students travelled in July 2017 to work in a nursing home in Grindavík a fishing town at the Southern Peninsula on the southwest coast of Iceland. The 2 students had an excellent learning experience and gained valuable work experience in their vocational area.


The students had the following positive quotes about their experience in Iceland.


“being able to feel welcome in the hospital and being able adapt to

the new county and culture of the people. Overall it was a great experience and

the hospital could not have given us any more as they were brilliant and very

helpful throughout our stay.” Carrie McAndrew

“I learned so much in the nursing home, I gained the ability to understand

different cultures, I got the chance to explore Iceland. I met friends for life

in my place of work.” Sinead Kerrigan
