The System of Education in Ukraine
There are many countries in the world and each country has its own characteristics. It differs from others in culture, in mentality and therefore in the lifestyle. The educational systems of each country are also different. And Ukraine is not an exception.
Children in Ukraine start gaining their education at the age of three when they attend kindergarten. The real school starts for them when they reach the age of six or seven. At the age of ten they become pupils of junior classes. It is not necessary to attend school after finishing junior classes, but the full secondary school programme includes senior classes (age 15-17). These two years of study are obligatory for gaining higher education.
So pupils finish school at the age of 15 or 17. Those who do not wish to continue studying may enter vocational schools, different kinds of technical schools, or just find their jobs and start working.
Having graduated from school at the age of 17 you may become a student at the establishments of high education: a university, a college, an institute. And after that you may become a postgraduate student (in case one wants to work at his or her scientific reseach and receive the scientific degree of Master or Doctor of Science).
But this stage in the life of Ukrainian people may not be the final in learning. Because the well-known English proverb says “As you live so you learn”.
