10 Most Educated Countries in Africa

In our society, knowledge is power, so we tried to seek out the most educated countries in Africa.

Education is important to help ensure a brighter future. It not only increases your knowledge, it helps you establish a schedule and socialize with others. Education systems are different in each continent and especially in each country, so it can be sometimes difficult to gauge whether or not one is better than the other, but generally there’s some type of standard to help determine this.

10 Most Educated Countries in Africa


We have to first point out that Africa is a very large and culturally diverse continent, so there are countries that are pretty well developed. There are so many beautiful and intelligent people here. However, in some areas there are limited resources, so education can appear to be quite scarce. That doesn’t seem to be the case, though, as evidenced by the list we’ve created here. We also created a similar list about the 10 Most Educated Countries in Asia if you’re interested in learning more about education systems in other continents.

In order to create this list in the best way possible, we first considered the GER (Gross Enrollment Ratio) for the tertiary level of education. According to UNESCO’s statistics, only a small percentage of people in this continent complete the tertiary level of education, though, so we opted instead to look at the rate of literacy. The rate of literacy isn’t the best indicator of education in most circumstances, but in this case, it provided a better figure and a clearer picture. To find the rate of literacy in these countries we took a look at The African Economist, and World Bank. To learn about how the education systems work, we looked at Classbase. Without further ado, let’s take a look a the 10 most educated countries in Africa.
