The Top 10 most educated countries in the world


A study carried out by The Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development’s (OECD), US website 24/7 Wall St. have listed the top 10 countries with the highest proportion of adults with a university degree.

Interestingly, the Irish were listed in the top 10. According to the study, 37 per cent of Irish people have a third-level degree and between the years 2000-2010, the percentage of people with a college education in Ireland nearly doubled, rising at an annual average of 7.3 per cent — faster than any country in the study, while graduation from second level education rose from 74 per cent to 94 per cent during the same period. The Irish third-level degree is the same as a bachelors degree.

Canada is the most educated country after it was found that 51 per cent of the population had a university degree. I am not too sure where Malaysia would fit in though.
