Train College Runs

Pyongyang, July 5 (KCNA) — The correspondence course train of Pyongyang University of Railways in the DPRK has recently left Pyongyang for the eastern coastal area of the country.

The train, which is called “College Running on Railways” or “Moving College”, is furnished with all educational conditions.

The correspondence course started from June Juche 61 (1972).

The train has a lecture room the seating capacity of which is more than 50, a teachers’ room, a library of textbooks and reference books, a room of experimental apparatuses and teaching aids and dinning and sleeping compartments.

It travels Chongjin, Hamhung, Kaechon, Sariwon and other areas 10-odd times a year to give lectures to students for some 20 days each time.

Teachers have newly worked out teaching contents of special technical subjects and made thousands of visual aids in accordance with students’ level.

Over the last 3-odd decades, the moving college has produced thousands of competent technicians.

The correspondence course was operated even during the “Arduous March” and the forced march, displaying to the full the advantages of the higher educational system for part-time study while working.

This year, too, many students are receiving theoretical and practical education in the moving college.
