What is Portugal's education system like?

Portugal's education is mandatory from ages 6-18, spanning public and private schools. Higher education is provided by universities and polytechnics, aligning with the Bologna Process. The country boasts high literacy and values education. Private schools, accredited and following the national curriculum, often have smaller classes, more resources, and might offer multilingual education. Fees differ, so researching schools via one of our experts is advised. Private tuition for Portuguese exists, but many in wealthy areas speak English.
