Education in the United Kingdom is a devolved matter with each of the countries of the United Kingdom having separate systems under separate governments: the UK Government is responsible for education in England, the Scottish Government is responsible for education in Scotland, the Welsh Assembly Government is responsible for education in Wales and the Northern Ireland Executive is responsible for education in Northern Irelandmarker. Broadly speaking, the systems in England, Wales and Northern Ireland are fairly similar, with the Scottish system being completely separate.

Education, though not school attendance, is mandatory in each country, with most pupils attending state schools but there are major differences between the school systems in terms of the curriculum, examinations, final qualifications, and at University level in terms of the nature of some degrees and the issue of tuition fees.
