Our students graduate with University Entrance Exam and are qualified to enter universities in Iceland and abroad. Their academic achievement has confirmed that ME is an excellent college. 

An integral part of the school is the social life which is organized and conducted by students themselves. An ambitious and active participation in social life along with esteemed academic education is an essential part of the upbringing of young people.
