The Organisation of School Time in Europe: Primary and General Secondary Education – 2017/18

There are some differences in the length and distribution of the holidays across Europe because of differences in culture, tradition, and climate. In this Eurydice report on the school calendar, you'll find information about how the year in European schools is organised.

The school calendar contains national data on the length of the school year, the start and the end dates of each school year, the timing and length of school holidays and the number of school days. It covers both primary and general secondary education and key points are illustrated by comparative figures. The information is available for 37 countries.
