Individual comments

First and foremost, what got me into graphic design was that I’ve always had an interest all kinds of computer work and image processing. The arrangement was exemplary, and I got everything I wanted out of the course. The teacher was great and thought I had a lot to say and that got me more interested.

Sigrún Eir Einarsdóttir

The program met the goal in terms of self-building and self-trust and prepared me as a whole. Whether for further study, entrepreneurship, or work. Technology comes in handy wherever we go because we are always learning how to look at it. If I am more positive about life and optimistic, I will be able to succeed in everything I do.

Bjarndís Helena Mitchell, student in Stronger Employee

I began in educational studies because I needed more credits to apply for a degree in Architecture. Educational Studies suited me perfectly, in 10 months I could take all the credits in general studies with full-time work. During my studies, I quickly realized that teachers really wanted us to be successful and my experience with teachers and staff was very good. When I began my studies, 32 years had passed since I sat on a school bench, so it was hard but fun. This course helped me tremendously and gave me confidence.

The course allowed me to be admitted to VIA University College, that is a University in Denmark. There I am in Architecture that takes three and a half years. I am finishing my second semester at the end of June. The program has been very useful to me, for example, Math and bookkeeping.

Björn Sigurjónsson, student at MSS

The program gave me increased knowledge in computers and bookkeeping that I can use in the future. I got to know some really fun students and teachers in my studies. Very fun and interesting course that everyone should check out.

Laufey Björk Sigfúsdóttir

To begin with, I was not sure whether it would work being in school with work at sea. But then it just happened, and everything has worked well. All the MSS staff meet my needs so much, that half is enough. I am in relaxed in the exchange system 3-1 and have never had to take a break to do my studies.

Sindri Hreiðarsson, student in Educational Studies.

My confidence towards further education is much better and it has opened my mind towards the learning path that I never believed could be interesting to me. This had a significant influence on my life because before I started my studies, I thought it was too late for me to start again. It has certainly proven me wrong.

I am waiting to be able to start Industrial Engineering at the University of Iceland in the Fall.

Regina Þorðardóttir, student at MSS

Learning was something that I considered was not for me. In the educational studies, the horizon widened little by little and the belief that I could not learn, not read, or take literary course, were going away. Learning affects so many things in daily life and gives you the self-confidence to take on life.

Kristjana Þórarinsdóttir, student at MSS

I got into an accident at sea and it made me incapacitated and wanted to take advantage of my time for a while. First, I went into Stronger Employee, and the discussion came up whether to send me to Real Skills Assessment. I took the Real Skills Assessment anyway and I finished Fish Technology. Then I took an extra course in Quality Control. I strongly encourage everyone to go take the Real Skills Assessment, while it is available. Studying at my age works like a vitamin shot in life.

Real Skills Assessment in Fish Technology at MSS Robert Henry Vogt, Quality Manager – Participant in Real Skills Assessment

I had not found myself in secondary school where anxiety and stress were affecting me. Since I started MSS, my confidence has increased significantly and my interest in continuing my education as well. After my studies at MSS, I am determined to continue my education and pursue Graphic Design, or something related. I am endlessly grateful to have had the opportunity to get back to school, after taking a break from school, with increased self confidence and joy in my studies.

Sigrún Eir Einarsdóttir

I am not at Keilir and plan on starting the University of Iceland in 2014. I was not sure what I wanted to do about higher education until I started at MSS. There I had a great English teacher, who encouraged me to take on English. The course was very interesting, and her motivation pushed me to go for a Master’s degree in English.

The course overall enjoyable, good teachers, and flexibility were offered. I have already recommended MSS to more than one I know and will continue to do so.

Henry Sverrisson, student at MSS

The studies were both challenging and fun. They gave me self-confidence and provided good preparation for studies at the University of Iceland. I particularly enjoyed learning setting up good essays, word processing, as well as gaining the conviction that I could learn math. Educational studies are great start for both those who have not been in school for a while or a good start for those who want to go further.

Graduated with B.S. in Tourism Studies and the future is bright.

Dagmar Jóna Elvarsdóttir, student at MSS

In the educational studies, the horizon widened little by little and the belief that I could not learn, not read, or take literary course, were going away. Learning affects so many things in daily life and gives you the self-confidence to take on life.

Kristjana Þórarinsdóttir

The reason why I went into Real Skills Assessment was because I wanted to go into business. I did not finish my diploma at that time, but I did finish business school in Denmark. I started in the Real Skills Assessment at MSS, and now I am studying Business Administration at the University of Iceland. I have severe dyslexia, which has negatively affected me. The Real Skills Assessment has gotten me the confidence and belief that I can learn, and I would advise everyone to enroll in the Real Skills Assessment at the next educational center.

Before I went into the evaluation, I thought “Why am I thinking about this at my age (ca. 47 years old.)?” I was surprised on how much I knew, and it sparked interest in completing Fish Technology, and when I first started, I studied Quality Control at Icelandic College of Fisheries in Grindavík. This greatly improved my confidence.

Skills Assessment in Fish Technology at MSS Svanhvít – Participant in Real Skills Assessment

I decided to go in to the Real Skills Assessment because I knew a person who went through this assessment. Since the assessment, I have finished studying food technology from Menntaskólinn í Kópavogi. I received a lot of evaluation in the Real Skills Assessment. I would tell anyone who is thinking about this to hurry because it is a great opportunity to gain rights in an easy way.

Skills Assessment in Food Technology at MSS in collaboration with Iðan Education Center Bryndís Rúnarsdóttir, Food Technician – Participant in the Real Skills Assessment.

After graduation, I know the opportunities that apps, Photoshop, Indesign, and Illustrator offer, and I am sure that I can take advantage them in the future. Although it was not only making my own invitation cards, Christmas cards, birthday cards, etc. The point of attending this workshop was to see if graphic design was for me. I am very excited to learn more about graphic design after this course and then abroad.
