Lower education

Schooling usually falls into three levels: Primary (years 1 to 7), Junior Secondary (years 8 to 9) and Upper Secondary (years 10 to 12). So-called "basic" schools teach years 1 to 9, as year 9 is considered to be a decent level of schooling for the majority of children; however, schooling is only free up to year 7 and most children drop out then.

Both government and private schools exist in Zambia. The private school system began largely as a result of Christian mission efforts during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Amongst famous private schools are Catholic run St. Mary's Seminary located in the Msupadzi area, south of Chipata, Eastern Province and Simba International School close to Ndola, Copperbelt Province. Private schools operate under either the British or American way of schooling, but also offer curricula approved by the Examinations Council of Zambia.

Higher education

Educational opportunities beyond high school are very limited in Zambia. After high school, most students study accountancy at the various accountancy colleges, mainly in Lusaka.

There are two universities: University of Zambia (UNZA) and Copperbelt University (CBU). They normally select or invite the brightest students to attend courses there. The introduction of fees in the late 1990's has made this quite hard for some, although bursaries do exist from the state.

In the late 1970s a second university opened on the copperbelt, taking over most of what previously was the Zambia Institute of Technology (ZIT) in Kitwe.

Other places of learning include NIPA (Public administrations college, ZCAS, Evelyn Hone College etc.).

Several teacher training colleges offer two-year programs beyond high school, and several Christian schools offer seminary-level training.
