Education and VET system in Albania
Education in Albania is provided by both public and private institutions at all levels.
The Ministry of Education, Sports and Youth [Ministria e Arsimit, Sportit dhe Rinisë] is responsible for Pre-university Education.
The Ministry of Finance and Economy [Ministria e Financave dhe Ekonomisë] is responsible for VET.
Higher education: According to the Constitution, the Government and Parliamentary Bodies determine the educational policy for tertiary education. They are responsible for drafting and approving laws, bylaws and other regulations and for carrying out the other activities in the field of tertiary education provided for by law. Article 57 of Albanian Constitution states that everyone has the right to access education and basic education is mandatory for all. The same article guarantees in principle the autonomy of higher education institutions.
