Last week, 14 female and 16 male students, enrolled at Pyongyang University of Science and Technology (PUST). These students recently graduated middle school (equivalent to secondary school in Western countries).
This is only the second group of students to immediately attend PUST after middle school graduation. In April 2015, 24 students enrolled at the university directly from middle school. Most students at PUST spend two years at a previous university prior to enrolling in the foreign-run university.
