Maldives Study and Training


There are three different school forms in the Maldives: Koranic schools, Divehis schools and English-speaking schools. The latter also have a secondary level, while the former have less than five years of study. A very large proportion of children participate in lower-level education, but even though the number of secondary school pupils has grown sharply during the 1990s, it is still a minority who receive some education in addition.

Education in Maldives

During the 1980s and 1990s large investments were made in education. Secondary schools (since 1992 also outside Mal谷), teacher colleges and vocational schools with specialization in, among other things. tourism, medicine, administration and technology have been opened. During the 1980s, ambitious adult literacy campaigns were conducted. Literacy has grown rapidly from 63% in 1980 to 93% (1995), which is the highest in the region.
