What is the ISCED?
The International Standard Classification of Education, or the ISCED for short, was developed to classify and characterise types of schools. ISCED is a statistical instrument and increases the international comparability of qualifications.
ISCED 2011 makes a distinction between nine different levels, from early childhood education to Doctoral or equivalent qualifications. The colors of the diagram showing the Austrian Education System are based on ISCED 2011.
