Seychelles Education


The Seychelles have since 1991 divided a school system into a six-year primary and a four-year secondary, both mandatory. Schooling is free of charge. In principle, all children attend school, girls to the same extent as boys. A fifth secondary year within the framework of a national one-year education (National Youth Service, NYS) is voluntary but necessary for higher studies. NYS is an internship where theoretical studies are interspersed with everyday practice.

Study in Seychelles

The stage after NYS is Seychelles Polytechnic, which offers both theoretical and vocational secondary education. Initially, teaching language is Creole, then English and French are introduced. The Seychelles lacked a college system for a long time, but since 2009 there is a university in the country. Reading and writing skills among the population over 15 years were estimated in 2008 to be 92% (91.5% for men and 92.5% for women).
