Sudan. A Country Guide Series Report from the AACRAO-AID Project.
O'Neill, Holly A.
This report provides information on the education system of the Democratic Republic of Sudan, and is designed to assist college admissions officers and registrars in the United States with the admission and placement of students from that country. The report contains general information on the geography, history, and people of Sudan, as well as more specific information on the country's elementary and secondary education system. Primary education consists of six years of instruction, and may be followed by instruction in highly-selective three-year intermediate schools or two-year youth vocational centers. Students who pass the intermediate school certificate may enter either a three-year academic secondary school, a technical secondary school, a vocational training center, or a teacher training institute. The postsecondary education system consists of 17 universities (including one women's college), two technical institutes, and a nursing college. Grading systems vary by level of instruction and institution. Two appendixes provide information on educational credentials required for admission to American universities and sample credentials and diplomas. A map of Sudan is included. (MDM)
