According to topschoolsintheusa.com, Northern Macedonia is a small landlocked country located in the Balkan Peninsula in southeastern Europe, bordered by Serbia to the north, Bulgaria to the east, Greece to the south and Albania to the west. It has an area of 25,713 km2 and is divided into three distinct geographic regions: The Vardar Valley in the central region, with its capital Skopje; The Eastern Mountains which includes Mount Korab (the country’s highest point at 2,764 m); and The Western Mountains which includes Lake Ohrid. Northern Macedonia is known for its diverse landscape which consists of rolling hills, lush forests and crystal clear lakes. Its terrain is mostly mountainous with around two-thirds of its area being mountainous or hilly. The climate varies from temperate continental in the north to Mediterranean along the coast. The educational system in Northern Macedonia follows a similar structure as other European countries with primary school lasting for eight years followed by secondary school for four years. After that students can choose between vocational schools or universities depending on their interests. Primary education is compulsory for all citizens aged 6-14 and free at all levels of education up to university level. Higher education consists of universities and specialized colleges throughout Northern Macedonia that offer courses ranging from two-year certificates to six-year PhD programs. Most universities offer courses in English as well as Macedonian language allowing students from all over the world to pursue higher education here. In recent years there have been efforts to reform Northern Macedonia’s educational system by introducing new curriculums based on European standards that focus on developing critical thinking skills amongst students rather than memorization techniques used previously. This has resulted in improved academic performance among students as well as increased enrollment rates at both primary and secondary levels.
