According to andyeducation, the educational system in Kuwait is divided into three tiers: basic education, intermediate and secondary education, and tertiary education. Basic education is free for all Kuwaiti citizens and includes kindergarten, elementary school, and middle school. Elementary school lasts for six years, while middle school lasts for three years. The curriculum at this level focuses on the basics such as math, science, social studies, language arts, art and physical education. Intermediate and secondary education consists of two parts: the General Secondary Education Program which lasts for four years and focuses on general academic subjects such as math, science and language arts; and the Technical Secondary Education Program which lasts for three years and focuses on vocational training in areas such as engineering or business management. Tertiary education in Kuwait is provided by both public universities (Kuwait University) as well as several private universities (Gulf University of Science & Technology). Most universities offer bachelor’s degrees in a variety of fields including business administration, engineering, law and medicine. In addition to traditional university courses there are also specialized programs such as those offered at Kuwait College of Science & Technology which focuses on research-oriented learning. In addition to formal educational institutions there are also several informal learning centers located throughout the country which offer courses in literacy skills or life skills such as job search techniques or money management skills. These centers are often run by NGOs or other organizations that specialize in training people living in rural areas who may not have access to traditional educational institutions. These centers provide valuable resources to those who may not have access to a formal education system in order to help them succeed in the labor market or contribute to their communities.
