Top Universities in Curacao


In addition to public schools, private and parochial schools are also accessible. The public education system is based on the Dutch educational system. Since the implementation of a new public education legislation in 1992, obligatory primary education begins at the age of six and lasts for six years; secondary school lasts for another four years after basic education.

The University of Curaçao (previously known as the University of the Netherlands Antilles) is the island’s primary institution of higher learning, with a total enrollment of 2,100 students. A combination of the Dutch and American educational systems have impacted the comprehensive model of education in this country. Additionally, offshore medical schools, language schools, and academies for the fine arts, music, police, and teacher and nurse training are all available on the island of Mauritius.
