Best Education System in World

For those who want to study abroad, being surrounded by people with high educational levels is a factor when deciding where to study. This OECD classification shows the most educated countries in the world, according to the number of people with a higher education diploma.

If you think that by joining with the best, you will become one of them, then you should know that the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) has found something that interests you. It calculates the number of people in developed countries ending at least one Undergraduate program (until 2016). Taking into account the total number of residents in each of these countries, the percentages shows the people between ages of 25-64 with a complete higher education degrees. Although this study also considers some other factors as well.

Which country is most educated in the world?

Undoubtedly, a country with a good education is considered as a nation with high levels of civility, good infrastructure and low crime rates. The study considered the nations that are part of the OECD and those that are members of the G20, totaling 42.

The 10 countries with the highest percentage of adults (aged 25 to 64 years) with professional degree are as follows:

 Rank Country Percentage of education
1  Canada  51%
2  Israel  46%
3  Japan  45%
4  United States  42%
5  New Zealand  41%
6  South Korea  40%
7  United Kingdom  38%
 8  Finland  38%
 9  Australia  38%
10  Ireland  37%

The above list is then followed by Belgium (35%), Switzerland (35%), Luxembourg (35%), Sweden (34%), Iceland (33%), Denmark (33%), The Netherlands (32%) and Spain (31%). Poland (23%), Greece (25%) and Portugal (17%).

Austria, Denmark, France, Germany, Norway, Poland, Slovakia, Sweden and Switzerland are the countries that, despite the economic crisis, have increased the money allocated to higher education between 2008 and 2012.


Obviously, the above data do not yield perfect correlations of education and quality of life of these places, but usually there are some parallels that we can observe. For example, the safest city of the world is Luxembourg. Then come Bern, Geneva and Zurich.

Also we can see that the countries with more homicides rates in the world are some regions of Russia, sub – Saharan Africa and parts of Latin America. The least violent region of the world corresponds to western and central Europe.

People prefer to go where there is more revenue and the streets are cleaner. That is, an orderly environment that fosters a sense of responsibility and where people obey the rules. Keep it in mind when next time you choose a destination to travel comfortably and confidently: choose a place with high income and clean streets.

In the case of America, we see Canada and the United States as representative of North America. Canada, takes the palms of success as a pioneer nation in the world with highest education level. We can say that it is an ideal country to live in. The social advances for the population of Canada are enormous e.g. there is a high social security and high sources of work according to educational levels. There is tremendous respect for the law there. So we can conclude that the quality of life in country is highly related to its level of education.
