March 2014 – PhD Cambridge University UK
Berglind Rós Magnúsdóttir
Professor at the Faculty of Education and Diversity
I was born in 1973 in Siglufjörður and grew up at Hraunum í Fljótum, Skagafjörður. I graduated from Menntaskólinn á Akureyri in 1992. After graduating, I took up teaching as an instructor in primary school, but that experience marked the next steps. I completed a B.Ed degree from the Iceland University of Education in 1998 with an emphasis on Icelandic and mathematics.
In 2003, I completed an MA degree with honors from the University of Iceland‘s Faculty of Education and Diversity in Gender Studies of Education, which was partly taken at the University of London (UCL). I graduated with a doctorate in education from Cambridge University in the UK in 2014 with a visit to Cornell University in the USA.
