Spain's immigrant population is apparently better educated than their Spanish counterparts. A study into educational qualifications recently carried out by the National Statistics Institute, and published yesterday, reveals that 56'6 per cent of immigrants living in Spain have completed their secondary education and that 20'4 per cent have been to university. The institute states that the figures are well up on the population as a whole, Spanish and immigrant residents combined. 37'3 per cent have completed their secondary education and 16'9 per cent have university qualifications. One of the principal conclusions drawn from the study is that there are still certain deficiencies in Spain's educational system in comparison to other countries.
