Australia’s Education System

Singapore’s Education System

The Australian education system provides primary, secondary and tertiary education, and is supported by the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) - a national policy for regulated qualifications across schools, vocational education and training and higher education. The national standard followed by public education institutes means all students in Australia have access to the same type of content and their achievements can be judged against consistent national standards.

The existing curriculum gives attention to seven general capabilities that are vital for life and work in the 21st century. These are literacy capability, numeracy capability, information and communication technology capability, critical and creative thinking, personal and social capability, ethical understanding, and intercultural understanding.



Pre-school in Australia begins at the young age of 3 with the majority of Australian children getting their first experience of learning with others in day care and playgroups. While pre-school education in Australia is not compulsory, the Australian Government has committed to increase participation in pre-school education to significantly encouraging results, with nearly 296,000 (90%) of eligible children in 2017 enrolled in a preschool program in the year before full-time school.
