Education System

Pre-tertiary education is organized in 4 main cycles: Pre-school education, Pre-primary education, primary education, basic education, upper secondary education, Upper secondary education ends on the “Matura” examination, and opening gates to tertiary education. Vocational and technical education starts at the fifth year of basic education. Its structure is similar to comprehensive education: The program lasts two to three years before the “basic education certificate”. Students can then pursue into vocational upper secondary education that also leads, after two or three years, to a “Matura” examination. However, in order to reach tertiary education (university or college), vocational students have to follow an extra “post-secondary” education program of 2 years.
