The Romanian education system offers both public or private schooling. The private schools form a system of alternative education that completes the classical education system, opening new perspectives and approaches to learning.
Compulsory general education consists of primary education, lower secondary education, and two years of higher secondary education. Pre-university education in Romania is being organized as a full-time education, as well as part-time education.
Schooling in the pre-university system is generally done in Romanian language, but also in other languages belonging to national minorities (in the case of large ethnic communities), or in international languages (usually done in private schools).
The Ministry of National Education is the institution that organizes and leads the national education system in Romania, in partnership with institutions under its coordination. The specific procedures and regulations are being established only by Government Decisions and orders of the Ministry of National Education. Below you can find more useful information about the Romanian education system.
Romanian Education System Stages
The national education system in Romania includes the following levels:
1. Early education (0-6 years)
The early education consists of the “before preschool” level (for children of 0-3 years), and “preschool education” (for children of 3-6 years). In all public schools across the country, the early education system is free of any charges. The before preschool level takes place in nurseries, kindergartens, as well as daycare centers.
Early education is also available in private facilities, most of the accredited by the Ministry of Education. Therefore, both public and private generally have the same educational content and the same national standards. They both follow the same curriculum and observe the same national standards.
