Swiss education system

Swiss pupils and students achieve above-average results in international comparisons. The success of the Swiss education system is built on strong public schools,  a diversity of educational paths and numerous possibilities to switch track, as well as a curriculum also designed to meet the needs of the job market. The education system is geared to providing students with a large range of opportunities. This contributes greatly to the country’s high level of social mobility (‘Swiss Dream’).

In Switzerland, it is the cantons that are primarily responsible for educational matters. The 26 cantonal minister of education coordinate their work at national level through a political body called the Swiss Conference of Cantonal Ministers of Education (EDK). The following links on the EDK’s website offer an overview of the Swiss education system:
