Montenegro’s education system is developed and very similar to the Member States of the European Union. Of course, it is not a coincidence; the country joins the EU soon and must integrate into the European Union’s educational structures. 

Montenegro public education system

Elementary education in Montenegro for citizens and residents is mandatory and free. The language of instruction in public schools is Montenegrin (Serbian Bosniak, Croatian), and so is Albanian in some elementary and secondary schools where there is a significant presence of Albanians.

There are three secondary school types in Montenegro:

  • Gymnasium lasts for four years and is considered as the preparatory school for college.
  • Professional school lasts for three or four years and offers broad and also specialised education.
  • Vocational school last for three years, without the option of continuing education and offers specialised professional knowledge.

Tertiary education in Montenegro includes colleges (4-6 years) and higher schools (2-4 years). Postgraduate studies are allowed for students with Master, Ph.D or other specialised degrees.
