Our topic for today is the most educated countries in Europe in 2020. If you have ever studied educational systems of countries, you surely know that there are lots of differences, starting from primary to middle and tertiary education. Primary education is compulsory in Europe, and it’s similar to each other, so we will focus on the tertiary educational level now.

Europe is famous for its old universities with a long standing tradition. First universities here originated from monastic schools. The main subjects were Latin, rhetoric and writing here. Later on, universities were funded and supported by kings. First independent universities were Bologna, Oxford and Paris, which were funded in the 11th and 12th century. Then in the 19th century, we could see the rise of the modern universities. Az European universities have a high level of education and long standing tradition, they are still excellent places to study. There are lots of schools where international students can learn in Netherlands, Germany,Norway, Finland, and Sweden.
