Education system of some European countries

In European education, there is now a free dress practice that is put into practice for the year. This practice has been in force for a very long time and has not encountered any problems. The main reason for this is the low level of poverty in Europe. In addition to this, there is a 4-year education process which we call primary school in European education. Those who are successful in this education process go directly to high school. Those who fail are sent to a vocational high school or a secondary school with the decision of their teachers. Persons who complete vocational high school can be assigned to a place as a worker.

After a certain training, he / she gets the right to establish his / her own business. Those who study and finish secondary school qualify for high school education. People who pass the high school directly from the primary education, 8 years, the middle school to high school people read the high school for 4 years. Those who finish high school can go to the university they want with the decisions of their teachers. So, briefly, the future of the student in Europe depends on the teachers. Teachers direct students.


The educational activity for a child in the Netherlands begins at the age of 4 years. Parents are free to send their 4-year-old child to school; To send a child who is 5 years old to school is mandatory under Dutch law. When we compare the education system of the Netherlands with our country, we can see that there is a similarity between the levels. As in our country, Dutch children to a middle school start on average 12 years old. At the age of 16, it is in the person’s discretion to attend higher education after the secondary school. Dutch students prefer to start and finish higher education, because it is easier and more qualified to have a job. On the other hand, there are no specific age limits for education in the Netherlands. People can make their registration at any age.

Education is very important for developing.
Countries owe their development levels to the education


Germany is one of the countries implementing social understanding in education. The German government attaches serious importance to education and provides direct economic support from a student’s first enrollment to higher education graduation. Teaching levels differ slightly from ours. The function of the institutions operating under the name of nursery in Turkey is a part of the training in Germany. Although it is not compulsory for these institutions where children between 2 and 6 years go, almost all of the German citizens send their children. After the nursery school, a four-year primary education phase starts in Germany and is called Grundschule.

After this school, the Realschule (Secondary School) education which starts with the direction of directing the child to a certain profession and whose education period is 6 years starts. After secondary school, it is sent to Hauptschule if it is considered appropriate to educate the student in a certain profession. The duration of training in Hauptschule is 5 years and the lessons are simple. It shows similar characteristics with the vocational high schools in our country. If a decision has been made for the student to receive a more qualified education after secondary school, he will be sent to the Gymnasium. Gymnasium is similar to flat high schools in Turkey and the aim is to educate qualified individuals. Training period is 9 years.


France, children between 2-6 years of age are sent to kindergartens as in Germany. The aim of the education in these schools is to educate students ready for primary school. Compulsory education continues until the age of 16. The elementary school age is between 6-11 years, and the main purpose of this level is to teach reading and writing and to gain basic mathematical skills. Secondary school starts after the age of 10 and continues until the age of 14. Students who graduate from this school are directed to the high school (equivalent to high school in our country). The high school consists of students aged 15-18. After this school, higher education begins.

    I like your site a lot. But please change the education system for Germany.
    After primary school , the parents can choose where to send their children.
    The Hauptschule is a basic school for the students with poor grades. (6 years)
    The Realschule is for student with intermediate knowledge. (6 years)
    The Gymnasium is for students with excellent skills who want to go to unversity afterwards (9 years)
    The comprehensive school is the fourth option which combines all school forms of the above. 6 – 9 years)
    The vocational school can be attended at the age of 16 and last 1 to 3 years. Here you can specialize on a vocational subject.
