Today, the education system includes preschool (up to six years of age), primary school (grades 1-9), upper secondary education (three to four years) or vocational education (two to four years) and higher education. Grades 1–9 are compulsory. After primary school, young people can choose general upper secondary education, vocational education or artistic education.

13 percent of pupils in primary and secondary school attend private schools. Northern Macedonia has joined the Bologna principles. This means that higher education is divided into three levels: basic education (three years), master's program (one to two years) and postgraduate education (three to four years). In 2015, 65,000 students attended higher education. 55 percent of them were women and 45 percent were men.
