UK 'second best education in Europe'

Korean studentsBy Sean Coughlan BBC News education correspondent South Korea is in top place in this global education league table

The UK is in second place among European countries and sixth overall in a global education league table.

South Korea is top, with three other Asian countries and Finland making up the top five, in rankings from education and publishing firm, Pearson.

The rankings include higher education as well as international school tests - which boosted the UK's position.

Pearson chief executive John Fallon highlighted the economic importance of improving education and skills.

These latest international comparisons, compiled for Pearson by the Economist Intelligence Unit, emphasise the success of Asian education systems, with South Korea, Japan, Singapore and Hong Kong in China rated as the highest performing.

But it shows a strong performance from the UK, which is ranked sixth, behind only Finland in Europe and ahead of countries such as Germany, France and the United States.

Finns no longer flying

Finland, which was previously in first place, has slumped to fifth, and there has been a wider downward trend for a number of Scandinavian countries.

It also records the rise of Poland, which has been hailed for reforming its post-Communist education system and sits in the top 10.


  • 1. South Korea
  • 2. Japan
  • 3. Singapore
  • 4. Hong Kong
  • 5. Finland
  • 6. UK
  • 7. Canada
  • 8. Netherlands
  • 9. Ireland
  • 10. Poland
  • 11. Denmark
  • 12. Germany
  • 13. Russia
  • 14. United States
  • 15. Australia
  • 16. New Zealand
  • 17. Israel
  • 18. Belgium
  • 19. Czech Republic
  • 20. Switzerland

These rankings are based upon an amalgamation of international tests and education data - including the OECD's Pisa tests, and two major US-based studies, Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (Timss) and Progress in International Reading Literacy Study (Pirls).

They also include higher-education graduation rates, which helped the UK to a much higher position than in Pisa tests, which saw the UK failing to make the top 20.

Higher income

by MrsSassyKorean

We have higher incomes based on pooling our money together to help one another just like the West Indians, Africans and East Indians. We value a college education like these same groups. This is nothing extraordinary. We help one another when it comes to starting a business. We stick together. This is why Koreans have a hold on the wig/hair weave industry. I am not proud of that aspect of our culture anymore than the high rate of alcoholism.
I do not think what is of God should be grossly distorted or deformed to appease an European beauty aesthetic. So Koreans profiting on the demeaning culture of black women wearing fake hair instead of loving and cherishing their own God blessed hair is not moral

Tourism in Europe...?

I love to see the different places in Europe and i have listened that if you are in one country of Europe then you can visit other countries as well without any visa and passport and you can visit them just having tickets of trains.There are approximately 52 countries in Europe...Can a person visit all of them of just selected one....?
Because i am planning to do Master degree from one of the European country and then i can plan to see Europe in my weekends.
Can any body answer my questions and also other suggestions will be appreciated...Thanks a lot...

First of all, 'Europe' is not the same as the 'European Union', or EU. Not every European country is an EU member state - for example, Switzerland is not part of the EU and to my knowledge is not planning on joining.

Therefore, if any EU national wishes to stay in Switzerland - for example - for an extended period of time, including study, they would need to look into what is required for this. Many non-EU European countries have certain agreements with neighbouring EU member states with regard to work and study (for practical reasons), but they might not have such…
