Here are the 7 most educated countries globally in 2024

Going by the saying of Newberry, Tommy, ‘Success is a planned outcome, not an accident.’ Nigeria, must have to rethink its education policy and implementations if it must count in the globe as an educated country.

World is One News, (WION), an Indian international English language news channel headquartered in Noida, India owned by the Essel Group and part of the Zee Media network of channels, recently listed 2024 most educated countries globally.

Below are a list of the countries.

South Korea

South Korea leads the globe as the most educated country according to wionews. It has a 69 percent of population that attained higher education levels.

Education is provided by both public schools and private schools. Both types of schools receive funding from the government, although the amount that the private schools receive is less than the amount of the state schools.

The Korean school system consists of a 6-3-3-4 single ladder system, six years in elementary schools, three years in middle schools, three years in high schools, and four years in university or two to three years at a junior college.


Canada is second in the pecking order with 66 percent of highly educated citizens which resonates with the country’s robust education system.

Education in Canada is generally divided into primary education, followed by secondary education and post-secondary. Education in both English and French is available in most places across Canada. Canada has a large number of universities, almost all of which are publicly funded.

The country’s education is for the most part provided publicly, funded and overseen by federal, provincial, and local governments.

In Canada, education is within provincial jurisdiction and the curriculum is overseen by the province.

Canada has a large number of universities, almost all of which are publicly funded. Established in 1663, Université Laval is the oldest post-secondary institution in Canada.

According to a wionews report in July, Japan is the world’s third with the most educated people. The Asian country has 64 percent of its population that holds higher education qualifications enhancing its economic competitiveness.

Japanese students consistently achieve high rankings in reading, mathematics, and sciences according to OECD evaluations.

In the 2018 Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA), Japan ranked eighth globally, with an average score of 520 compared to the OECD average of 488.

Despite this relatively high performance, Japan’s spending on education as a percentage of GDP is 4.1 percent, below the OECD average of five percent.

The contemporary Japanese education system is a product of historical reforms dating back to the Meiji period, which established modern educational institutions and systems.

This early start of modernisation enabled Japan to provide education at all levels in the native language (Japanese), rather than using the languages of powerful countries that could have had a strong influence in the region.

Current educational policies focus on promoting lifelong learning, advanced professional education, and internationalising higher education through initiatives such as accepting more international students, as the nation has a rapidly ageing and shrinking population.


The country has 63 percent of its population educated, emphasising their focus on education and skill development.

Education in Luxembourg is multilingual and consists of fundamental education, secondary education and higher education. Most schools are run by the state and are free. Attending school is obligatory from the ages of 4 to 16.

From pre-school onwards, Luxembourgish is spoken with the children. For the large number of foreign children in the country, this may be their first exposure to Luxembourgish. From the age of six, children are taught to read and write German. The year after, French is introduced, while the language of instruction is German.


Ireland has 63 percent of its population educated just like Luxembourg, highlighting the country’s profound focus on education and skill development.

Education in the Republic of Ireland is a primary, secondary and higher often known as “third-level” or tertiary education.

In recent years, further education has grown immensely, with 51 percent of working age adults having completed higher education by 2020. Growth in the country’s economy for over six decades has driven much of the change in the education system.

For universities there are student service fees up to €3,000 which was rolled out nine years ago, which students are required to pay on registration, to cover examinations, insurance and registration costs.


Russia is on the sixth ladder of the raking with 62 percent population haven achieved higher education standard, contributing to its intellectual capital.

The Russian Federation currently follows an 11-year system of education, consisting of four years of primary school, five years of lower secondary school and two years of upper secondary school.

In Russia, the state provides most education services regulating education through the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Science and Higher Education.


Lithuania is placed seventh on the ladder with 57 percent of its population having higher education qualifications, underlining its commitment to academic excellence.

In Lithuania, education is free of charge and compulsory from the age of six or seven to 16 years covering “primary” and “basic” education), as stated in the national Law on Education.

In 1996, the gross primary enrollment rate was 98 percent. Primary school attendance rates were unavailable for Lithuania as of 2001.While enrollment rates indicate a level of commitment to education, they do not always reflect children’s participation in school.
