The high schools in Romania are theoretical and technical. Beside these, exists a vocational root, realized through Art and Professions Schools. These schools are based on the formal system schools, which had schools for apprenticeships (2 years) and vocational schools (3 years).
Now, at the end of 9 and 10 years of study, the scholars obtain a first level qualification. For 2nd and 3rd level of qualification, the scholar must study 1-3 years more. The superior levels are 4 and 5.
