The elementary school in the East Iceland village of Eskifjörður is working to reduce the cost of school lunches for its students.
284 students took the admissions test for the medical program, which only admits 50 students total, or just under a sixth of the applicants. There were then 64 applicants to the physiotherapy program, which will only admit 35 new students.
The university’s Icelandic as a Second Language program has more than doubled its enrollment over the last ten years.
Students at the Iceland Academy of the Arts are refusing to pay tuition fees in protest against poor facilities and worsening service at the school.
