Welcome to Eurydice

Eurydice is a network whose task is to explain how education systems are organised in Europe and how they work.

We publish descriptions of national education systems, comparative studies devoted to specific topics, indicators and statistics in the field of education.

Our reports show how countries tackle challenges at all education levels: early childhood education and care, primary and secondary education, higher education and adult learning. More About us

The work of the Eurydice network is co-funded under the Erasmus+ programme.
