Georgia Education


The compulsory schooling applies from the age of six. The school is 11 years old, of which 9 years are compulsory. Admission to universities and other higher education requires 11-year school or 9-year compulsory school combined with secondary education. Georgian is the dominant language of instruction with the exception of Abkhazia and South Ossetia (82% of Georgia schools had the 1996/97 academic year as Georgian language); In addition, there are schools with teaching on e.g. Armenian, Azerbaijani and Russian.

New elements in the education system after the Soviet period are private schools and colleges, as well as the existence of fee-based education.
