Education of Immigrants in EU – One third have a degree

An important dimension of migrant integration into host societies is the level of educational attainment. In 2020, just over one third (35.6%) adult migrants (aged 25-54) who were born in another EU Member State had a tertiary level of education. This rate was lower for migrants who were born outside the EU (29.6%).

By contrast, the share of tertiary educated population living in their Member State of birth was 36.7%. Among the Member States for which data are available for 2020, Poland’s migrant population aged 25-54 born in another EU Member State had the highest share of completed tertiary education (67.9%), followed by Estonia (65.0%) and Sweden (62.4%).

For migrants who were born outside the EU, 72.8% had a tertiary level of education in Romania, followed by Ireland (65.3%) and Poland (59.5%). At the other end of the scale, in Italy, 12.7% of persons aged between 25-54 born in another EU Member State had a tertiary level of education, followed by Greece (24.9%). Greece (11.5%) and Italy (13.4%), followed by Slovenia (17.3%) reported also the lowest shares of non-EU-born population with a tertiary level of educational attainment.

For the native-born population, the highest share of those aged 25-54 with tertiary education in 2020 was observed in Cyprus (54.3%), and the lowest share in Romania (21.1%).
