Zambia: A Country Guide Series Report from the AACRAO-AID Project.
O'Neill, Holly A.
This report on the educational system of Zambia contains information for university admissions officers and registrars in the United States on the credentials and other documentation that would be minimally required for student entry from Zambia to specified levels of study in the United States. A section of general information describes that nation's location, geography, economics, climate, population and language. A brief historical description describes the periods from 1889 to the present. A section specifically on educational history describes education under pre-colonial, British South Africa Company rule, under colonial office rule, and during the period after 1964 and independence. A section on education in the pre-independence era between 1924 and 1964 details European education in Zambia, African education, and technical and vocational education. The next section lays out the current system including administration, finance, and school year. This section also details pre-school and primary education, secondary education, technical and vocational education, teacher training, and higher education. The description of higher education consists largely of information on Copperbelt University and the University of Zambia (academic disciplines, academic year, admissions requirements, and programs offered and their length). Appendixes contain charts of the educational ladder and the credentials it requires as well as sample documents. (JB)
