About universities in Venezuela

Nine years of compulsory primary education in Venezuela is followed by higher education opportunities. With more than 90 institutions of higher learning, Venezuela’s higher education is offered free of cost by the public centers of learning. Both undergraduate and graduate studies can be pursued in colleges and universities of Venezuela.

Overview of Higher Education in Venezuela

The academic year for public education starts in September and ends in June.

At the graduation and post graduation levels, universities of Venezuela have been seen offering courses on as many as 370 different subjects. Some of these take six years to complete while others take three years. Realizing the dearth of students opting for higher education, the state revised its education policies to make way for students to graduate studies with only minimal entrance requirements. Higher education in Venezuela is broadly divided into universities and technical schools. While universities award students the title of Engineers, technical schools offering more professional studies award the University Higher Technician or Licentiate.

Bachelor’s and Master’s Programs in Venezuela

The minimum qualification necessary for gaining admission to undergraduate studies is a high school degree. A mandatory admission test at the national level will decide if the student is fit to study in public universities and colleges in Venezuela. Upon completing two to six years of studies in any of the colleges of Venezuela, a graduation degree is awarded. At the undergraduate level, the subjects in highest demand include social sciences, law, economics, business administration, sociology, psychology, etc.

Universities authorized by the National Council for Universities develop graduate studies and programs. Post-graduate education is divided into specializations, Masters and doctorate levels of studies. The aim is to enhance the academic capability and professional nuances of the candidates. Masters degrees in Venezuela are offered on business related subjects like marketing, management and finance, as well as, in economics, fine arts, science subjects, education, engineering, and so on.

The tuition fee for higher education is more or less affordable in public colleges and universities. There are some public and private institutions which offer financial assistance to students in the form of loans, fellowships and scholarships. Although education is generally free, only about 15 percent of university age population attends university on a full-time basis. As a result, a number of new universities and educational programs are being conceived by the government. These programs will focus on specific geographical issues and address populations accordingly. These current educational and economic reforms in Venezuela, therefore, seek to address issues of inequality and discrimination. Professional programs are also offered by many universities and institutes as a part of graduate studies.
