New Eurydice Publication :: The Structure of European Education Systems 2018/19: Schematic Diagrams
How do countries across Europe organise their education systems? What are the different models of organisation in primary and secondary education in Europe and how long does each educational level last? How diverse are the programmes offered at tertiary level? The answers to all of these questions can be found in the Eurydice’s latest publication “The Structure of the European Education Systems”. You will discover, for example, that there are three main organisational models of primary and lower secondary education in Europe and how they function. The report includes national schematic diagrams, an explanatory guide and a map showing visually these models. The information is available for 43 European education systems, covering 38 countries participating in the EU’s Erasmus+ programme.
