Education is one of the foremost quests which need to be achieved for prosperity of a nation. Therefore education and institutes housing education are significant in any economy. Be it a developed economy or a developing one, the quality of the educational institutes can lend you a foresight into the prospects of the nation. Education system in Australia is federal in nature. The schools are primary responsibilities of the state or territory in which they belong. There are both public and private schools in each state. Australian Government follows the three-tier model of education. At first there is the primary education, followed by the secondary education and then comes the tertiary education. Children of ages between 7 to 12 years fall under primary education, 13 to 17 years lie in the secondary education after which school education ends. From the age of 17 to 18 the tertiary education begins. For attaining tertiary education students enroll themselves at Universities, technical or medical schools. They may also register for vocational courses at recognized institutes which help them learn a particular skill useful for some special trade. As per reports Australia purports 99% literacy among the citizens of either gender.
