Iceland Cultural Story: Post-Secondary Education (LISTEN)

We covered Iceland Airwaves Music Festival and other cultural stories over the fall semester. Read about our adventures via our Iceland Airwaves 2016 page and tune into WCRX-FM for our final Radio Documentary on January 14th at 10 a.m. CT (livestream here) and during the encore presentation on January 15th at 10 a.m. CT. In the meantime, hear this cultural story that was produced while we were in Iceland.

In Iceland at state-run institutions, students only pay registration fees; there are no tuition fees. In America right now, politicians are seeking to change how we pay for college. Iceland, a progressive nation, provides higher education to its citizens at minimal to no cost, which allows students to graduate without an accumulated debt. Director of Human Resources at the University of Iceland, Ásta Möller, shared what a college education means to the people of Iceland. Also, Jonina Kardal from the Career and Counseling Services at the University of Iceland talks about the importance of a college education, and studying abroad.

Listen below for a sneak peek on my final story on International Parental Leave, which will air on January 14th and 15th at 10 a.m. CT on WCRX-FM.
