The School System

Germany has a four level educational system. Following nursery school education starts with the primary school.

The classic form of education runs from the primary school through the secondary and upper secondary levels to tertiary education, which includes specialist and university education.

These are connected to the quaternary level, which mainly consists of further education such as adult educational colleges.

Due to the cultural and educational autonomy in Germany the competence for schools and universities lies with the federal states.


Pupils living in Saxony-Anhalt are able to be educated in publicly run schools and schools run under independent trusteeship. The trusteeships of publicly run schools in the sense of the education act are the rural districts, the communities or the federal state.

Schools run under independent trusteeship are schools where the trustee is either a natural person or corporate body of private rights or religion or community of philosophy of life. All are subject to the state administration of schools.

Pupils in Saxony-Anhalt are educated at the individual types of schools for general education and also vocational schools.
