Recommended annual instruction time in full-time compulsory education in Europe - 2017/18

This Instruction Time report analyses the recommended minimum instruction time in full-time compulsory general education in 43 European education systems for the year 2017-2018. Special attention is paid to subjects, with a special focus on reading, writing and literature, mathematics, natural sciences and social studies. The report outlines how reading, writing and literature are the subject area that takes up the largest share of instruction time, especially in primary education. Mathematics represents the second largest share of instruction time. Its share decreases at secondary level in favour of other subjects such as foreign languages. In addition to the comparative analysis, the report includes national diagrams that illustrate data by country and subject, which have been collected jointly by the Eurydice and the NESLI networks. Eurydice has been collecting data on instruction time for more than two decades and updates annually these findings, available on the Eurydice website since 2010.
