Eurydice The Structure of the European Education systems 2014/15
The diagrams represent the structure of mainstream education from pre-primary to tertiary level for the 2014/15 academic year. Forty-four education systems are included covering 36 countries participating in the EU’s Erasmus+ programme. The diagrams show the mainstream educational programmes considered to be the most representative in each country. This encompasses early childhood education provided in publicly subsidised and accredited centre-based settings for children from the youngest age of enrolment. Primary and secondary education programmes follow and these largely comprise the period of compulsory education in all countries. Finally, the diagrams show post-secondary non-tertiary programmes as well as the main programmes offered at tertiary level.
