Basic Education: Basic general education lasts for nine years. Graduates of this level may continue their education at senior high school to receive secondary general education. They may also enter an initial vocational school or non-university level higher education institutions:
- Initial vocational schools, including PTU, offer one-and-a-half to two years of purely professional education and a vocational school which offer joint professional and secondary general education for three to four years and skilled workers' training at different levels. - Non-university level higher education institutions also offer three to four year professional and secondary general education and two-year vocational training for holders of the School Leaving Certificate. Secondary general education on the basis of basic general education continues for two years and ends when students are 17-18 years of age. Secondary education leads to the reception of the Certificate of Complete Secondary General Education. Graduates from a secondary general school may apply for enrollment to a higher education institution. Higher Education: Higher education is provided by public and non-public (non-State) accredited higher education institutions. There are two levels of higher education: 1. Basic higher education (4 years) leading to a Bachelor's degree, the first university level degree. This is equivalent to the B.Sc. degree in the US or Western Europe. 2.
