Education in Albania

The education system in Albania is regarded as relatively advanced, with students at the primary school level maintaining an approximate literacy rate of 99%. The government of Albania continually strives to maintain this literacy rate and overall levels of success by implementing continually modernized measures that ensure the preservation of this education system.

Education in Albania is distinguished into four categories:

Primary Education

The first nine years of education in Albania are compulsory however most young people remain in primary education until reaching grade 12.

Secondary Education

Also known as Regular Education, this takes a further three years to complete and focuses on academic teaching and preparation for university. Many of Albania’s secondary schools have been recently renovated and fully equipped with state-of-the-art materials and equipment.

Vocational Education

An alternative to Regular Education, this type of education takes between 2 – 5 years to complete, depending on the type of qualification desired. In recent years the government of Albania has made overwhelming advances in the vocational education system, in an attempt to add further impetus to the country’s growing economy. 

Tertiary Education

Tertiary education in Albania focuses on giving students a university education. There are numerous public and private universities in the country and these are well dispersed and populated across the country. A vast range of subjects are taught, including economic sciences, foreign languages, history & philology, medicine, law, sciences and physical education.
