School education

Basic education lasts for nine years, divided into two cycles of six and three years respectively. It culminates in the Diplôme de Fin d'Etudes de l'Enseignement de Base. Secondary education lasts four years and is divided into two stages (two years of general education and two years of prespecialized education). It leads to the Baccalauréat in Arts, Mathematics, Experimental Sciences, Technology, Economy and Management. Vocational studies are available for those who have completed basic education. They lead to a vocational/ technical qualification. Students who have obtained 12 out of 20 or students who have completed the first cycle of secondary education may apply to study for a vocational/technical non-university level diploma.

Higher education

Higher education is mainly provided by universities and their numerous higher institutes and schools. There are now a total of eight universities, one of them being private. Institutions of higher education come under the responsibility of the Ministry of Higher Education, Scientific Research and Technology or the Ministry most appropriate to their speciality. The Conseil supérieur de l'Education, set up in 1988, is presided over by the Prime Minister and composed of all ministers having an interest in education and higher education. It is called upon to give its opinion on all major matters including financial policy. The Comité national d'Evaluation, created in 1995, evaluates higher education and university research as well as project results. Twenty new institutions opened in the year 2002-2003.
