& Montse Finland Spain Pakistan Early childhood education Primary schools Secondary schools Higher education School system in
Spain Education is compulsory from the age of 6 to 16. It's "free of charge" Kindergartens are not compulsory and are not free of charge either. There are 2 periods, one from 0 to 3 years old and another from 3 to 5 years old. School starts at 9:00 and finishes whether after lunch 13-14:00 or before 17:00 (with lunch break 12:30 - 15:30. There are only some schools providing warm food for lunch, but you always have to pay for it. Special education Typical features or differences between the systems There are state universities throughout Spain that provide a degree,
professional qualifications and post degree education. Confusingly some
universities are called polytechnic universities which can indicate that they are partial
towards the sciences. School starts at 8:30 and lasts till 14:30. Some of the high schools provide food for lunch, but you always have to pay for it. However, this is not always the case and there is no difference in the respective status of either a polytechnic university or university.

Currently, the Spanish system is being harmonized with the rest of Europe. This is
likely to result in a system similar to that of the UK with three- to four-year-degrees and
2-year-Master’s qualifications. Two different kinds of Vocational trainings Grado Medio Grado superior This lasts two years and provides a basic level of training. This lasts a further two years and can only be started when a student is 18 years old. If a student passes his "Grado Superior" he obtains access to
the university system. Bachillerato Is a two-year non-compulsory education level, which complements Compulsory Secondary Education. The Secondary Education Certificate is a prerequisite for entering Baccalaureate. The theoretical ages for commencement and completion are 16 and 18, respectively They are provided by the high schools are intended to provide practical
training for a working skill (plumbing, electrical work, hairdressing etc).
They last four years and result are universally recognized across Spain. From primary school onwards, children experiencing learning difficulties may be able to get special assistance, either from specialist teachers in the school or specialists outside of the school, though not all schools are adapted to help children who need assistance. If a pupil has been assessed and been found to be in need of assistance:
Child and parent sent to a Center for Special Needs.
Child undergoes a variety of tests with a doctor and a social worker to determine the child's level of need.
The professionals evaluate the child and discuss results with the parent. If a child has learning deficiencies of 33% or + then he/she is classified disabled.

A grant will be given for treatment (including speech therapy, physiotherapy and other specialist assistance), help in school or placement in a special-needs school if the child's mainstream school is unable to provide the education required. Vocational training Bachelor Master Doctorate Schools

Passing the Matriculation Examination entitles the candidate to continue his or her studies at university. The examination consists of at least four tests; one of them, the test in the candidate’s mother tongue (compulsory for all candidates). The candidate then chooses three other tests: second national language, a foreign language, the mathematics, and one test in the general studies battery of tests (sciences and humanities).

Upper secondary schools for adults are either separate institutions or adult education units operating linked to institutions providing education for young people.
