Education

The education system in Morocco includes preschool, primary, secondary and higher education.
Education in Morocco is compulsory until the age of 15 and is free.
The education system is under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of National Education (INE) and the Ministry of Higher Education and Leadership Training.

Preschool education
Preschool education is compulsory and available to all children under the age of 6. This level is open to children aged 4-6 years. There are two types of preschool institutions in Morocco: kindergartens and schools for studying the Koran.

Primary education
Primary education consists of 6 years for children aged 6-12 years. Students must pass the Certificat d'etudes primaires in order to be eligible for admission to junior high schools.

Secondary education
It takes 3 years to complete junior high school. In another way, you can call this stage of education College. After 9 years of basic education, students move on to the upper secondary school and complete a one-year general basic curriculum, which includes either art or natural sciences. First-year students study art and/or natural sciences, mathematics, or original education. Second-year students study Earth and life sciences, physics, agricultural sciences, technical sciences or take courses in mathematics A or B.

Higher education
The higher education system consists of both private and public institutions. There are fourteen major public universities in the country. However, there are dozens of national and international universities, as well as private ones. Access to higher education is limited to students who have received a bachelor's degree. All undergraduate students are guaranteed admission to public universities, but only to certain faculties or colleges. These faculties, known as accès ouvert or open access faculties, include arts and humanities; basic sciences (biology, chemistry and physics); legal, economic and social sciences; and traditional education. The majority of Moroccan university students are enrolled in open access faculties.
Admission to other faculties, known as accès régulé or faculties with limited access, is much more selective, as the name suggests. In addition to obtaining a bachelor's degree, prospective students must pass an entrance exam. Faculties with limited access include the following: Business and Management, Dentistry, Education, Engineering, Medicine and Pharmacy, Paramedics, Sports Sciences, Science and Technology, Teacher training and Technology.

Healthcare

The level of healthcare in Morocco is at a fairly high level. According to the VOS, Morocco is ranked 17th in the world in terms of the quality of medical services and the development of the healthcare system.

Morocco has a public and private healthcare system. Most medical institutions in the private sector are located in Casablanca, Rabat and other major cities. Outside of major cities, medical services are limited. The level of medicine is not the same as in Europe. There can be big differences between private and public hospitals.

People working in private and public hospitals are well trained, but speak little or no English. Doctors and medical staff often speak French. Good language skills are more common in private clinics. Emergency care in public hospitals is free, but in practice foreigners are obliged to pay, for example, for treatment longer than one night. Treatment provided in private hospitals in Morocco meets higher standards than treatment in the public sector, and when possible, it is recommended to contact a private clinic directly.

The healthcare system consists of compulsory medical insurance (compulsory medical insurance). AMO is divided into two sections: CNSS (private) and La CNOPS (public). There is also RAMED, a health insurance program designed to support people with low socio-economic status in the event of financial tragedies due to health problems.

The Moroccan health system consists of four levels, the first of which is "primary health care". This includes clinics, medical centers and local public health hospitals, as well as medical posts and medical offices of private healthcare.
The second section includes provincial and prefectural public health hospitals, as well as specialized clinics and private health care offices.
The third area includes hospitals in all major cities, and the fourth — university hospitals. These centers are equipped with the most modern equipment.
