Description

EDUCPG indicates the person's educational attainment in Papua New Guinea in terms of the level of schooling completed and year or grade completed.

Comparability — General

The educational system of Papua New Guinea is composed of 6 years of primary education, 4 years of lower secondary, and 2 years of upper secondary.

Technical and vocational education is offered at different levels. Two-year vocational programs are available for persons who completed primary. Technical or vocational colleges offer courses to students who have completed lower secondary education. High school graduates receive a High School Certificate and have the option to take a three-year course to obtain a Certificate or Diploma of Elementary Teaching.

The first stage of higher education is composed of bachelor's degree programs, which take 4 years, and 5 years in the field of medicine. Post-graduate programs last up to 3 years.

The disaggregated years of post-secondary education are only available in the 1990 sample. In 2000, technical and post-secondary education can only be identified for persons who attained a qualification (certificate, diploma, or degree.) For this sample, the category for university includes persons who finished undergraduate or graduate studies. The 1980 sample does not report technical or post-secondary education.
