Slovakia, also referred to as the Slovak Republic, offers you natural landscapes, hills, caves, medieval castles and cities, folk architecture, spas and ski resorts. The nation is located in the center of Europe and borders Austria, Czech Republic, Poland, Ukraine and Hungary and vast hills occupy the northern half of Slovakia. Slovakia offers compulsory education for ten years. Students enter primary education in their 6th year, second primary education will take them from 10-15 years of age and “high” schools are for those 16 and older until they reach university age.
Most universities in Slovakia are owned and operated by the state, although more private and religious alternatives have been available since 1990. These are private-funded higher education schools that are privately run but approved by the Ministry of Education. Studying in Slovakia provides cultural possibilities that other nations may not see. Still emerging after decades of communist rule, Slovakia's higher education is a study that continues to emerge in a community, economy, and academic system.
The “Baccalaureate" programs last 3 to 4 years. An additional 1 to 3 years will last for a "Masters" program. Doctoral programs may take a further three to four years. Slovakia offers its students free higher education. Higher education costs can range from 1,805.11 Euro to 7,220.92 Euro per school year in Slovakia for foreign students. This is just for tuition.
Living costs would be on top of the estimate. In order to join a tiertary level course or program in Slovakia, students must take one or more entrance tests, the amount of tests and their content differ depending on which college you are applying for. However, if there are more places to fill than the amount of candidates, this is not needed.
Compared to other nations around the globe, the standard of education in Slovakia is regarded quite high. Slovakia provides possibilities seldom found elsewhere because it is still emerging as an economic force. It is a progressive, forward-thinking nation with a very bright future.
