Primary education starts at age six and lasts for nine years until grade 9; secondary education consists of two levels: general secondary school (grades 10-12) and higher education (university level). All public schools provide free education until grade 9 while private schools offer alternative options such as international schools that teach English or other languages as well as vocational schools that specialize in certain areas such as engineering or business management.
