The educational system of Peru is described, and guidelines concerning the placement of students who wish to study in U.S. institutions are provided. After describing preschool through secondary education, attention is directed to technical and vocational training, teacher training, the universities, training in seven health fields, and other specialized education. Specific concerns include the following: traditional upper-secondary education and technical secondary education, formal and nonformal technical education, teacher training programs by level and by the reform/traditional system, special subjects for teacher training and for continuing education, grading and credits for universities, university degrees and titles, undergraduate and graduate programs, ecclesiastical education, education in the arts, and military training. Guidelines for U.S. placement officials cover Peruvian degrees and qualifications and the grading system, and the placement recommendations address credentials at each educational level. Appendices include: reproductions of institutional documents, including certificates/transcripts; and lists of institutions offering different types of studies, including information on enrollments, college programs, and the size of the library collection.
