Global Education Database

Internationally comparable data on all levels of education for more than 200 countries and territories.

Bulk Data Download Service (BDDS)

The files downloaded through the BDDS are presented in *.csv format (comma separated values), which are designed to give power data users the ability to access all of the UIS data they need in a format that can easily be leveraged by most of today’s high capacity analytical tools.

Data API

Programmatic access to UIS data and metadata to allow developers and researchers to pull data directly from the source.

As of June 23rd, 2020 the UIS SDMX API has reached its End-of-Life (EOL) and is no longer up-to-date with the latest UIS datasets.
