State financed non-confessional free education for all

Education at all levels of the public school and universities is state financed and regarded as part of the public welfare state. It should be non-confessional and is without fees for all Swedish citizens, as well as for citizens of other Nordic countries, Switzerland and countries within EU/ESS.

10 years of school are compulsory by law for all children; preschool for 6-year olds and primary school for age 7-15 (SFS 2010:800). Most young people continue three additional years at secondary school (Sw: gymnasium). Around 45% go further to universities.
