According to topschoolsintheusa.com, Vanuatu is an archipelago located in the South Pacific Ocean, east of Australia and north of New Zealand. It is composed of an estimated 82 islands, with the two largest being Efate and Espiritu Santo. The terrain in Vanuatu is mostly mountainous, with large areas of rainforest and grasslands. The climate is tropical, with hot summers and mild winters. The Vanuatuan educational system is based on the British model, with primary school lasting for six years and secondary school for three years. All students are required to attend primary school from ages 6 to 12 and secondary school from ages 13 to 15. Upon completion of secondary school students can then go on to further study at universities which offer a range of undergraduate, postgraduate and research degrees. The Vanuatuan government provides free education up to the university level for all its citizens, including textbooks and other materials needed for learning. Additionally, there are several scholarships available for students who wish to pursue higher education but cannot afford tuition fees. Students can also take part in exchange programs between universities in Vanuatu and other countries around the world. See topmbadirectory for Vanuatu Politics and Known People.
