Moroccan Education System
As there are only 13 universities in the country, many students look for an alternative way to handle their educational investments. Many choose to study abroad, thus making the country a new and profitable marketplace for educational specialists. A significant flow of students pursue their studies in Anglophone institutions. English is the third language after Arabic and French. In 2002, AMIDEAST chose Morocco as the site for the organization’s 50th anniversary conference on “Higher Education in the Arab World: Preparing for the Global Marketplace.”

The Moroccan secondary education system is called the Baccalauréat. With the Baccalauréat there are 3 specialisations: Lettres, Sciences, and Technical.

Admission to Higher Education
The Attestation du Baccalaur éat is required for admission to higher education in Morocco. The programme includes both general and general/vocational subjects. Additional criteria apply for entry into specific programmes, in the form of both entrance examinations (including for engine ering programmes and medical specializations) and in terms of prerequisite subject clusters or specializations. Students’ final examination average can also play a role in admission.

The first cycle consists of an initial (propedeutic) year, after which students may choose between a theoretical specialization ( études fondamentales ) and a professional specialization ( études professionnelles ). Upon completion of this cycle, gr aduates are awarded the Licence d’Etudes Fondamentales or the Licence Professionnelle. The second cycle has a duration of 2 years and also has two specializations, one leading to a Master , the other to a Master Spécialisé
