Abstract

305 Higher Education in the Faroe Islands By Dr. Jóan Paul Joensen* First I will supply you with a brief overview of the general educational system in the Faroe Islands, and then concentrate on higher education in the Faroes. The educational system in the Faroe Islands is very similar to the Danish system. The children start school at the age of seven years, and a continuation school which takes from two to three years more. Compulsary school attendance is only seven years, when the child can, if it so wishes, leave school at the age of fourteen. After the 9th year in school it is possible to continue in high school (3 years) or on HF courses (higher preparation examination, 2 years); quite a large number of pupils continue here. There are two high schools in the Faroe Islands, one in T6rshavn and the other in Gota in Eysturoy. HF courses are also run in the high schools in other villages, for instance in Suouroy.
