The World Education Forum put 38 African countries among the top 140 countries with the finest education systems based on skills development. Other criteria studied include research, the development of digital literacy standard academic facilities, and the capacity to think critically and creatively, in addition to the general level of skills of the workforce and the quality and quantity of education possessed by each of these countries.

Africa is home to 54 countries, but which African countries have the finest educational systems? Although the majority of African countries are regarded as developing, others are carving out a space for themselves in terms of education.

1. Seychelles

Seychelles is the first African country to have achieved the UNESCO "education for all" target established by a UN subsidiary. Seychelles presently ranks first among African countries with the best educational systems. It is also one of Africa's top ten most educated countries.

The World Economic Forum has given the country a score of 69.3 in terms of education. It is also the only African country whose education system is ranked among the top 50 in the world. According to UNESCO, the Seychelles government spent 11.72 percent of its total budget on education in 2016. This is conceivable in the country, as kids up to the age of 16 are provided with free and obligatory education.

2. South Africa

This country's educational system is ranked 84th in the world. South Africa is a well-known country in Africa, situated near the continent's southernmost point. The South African government is largely responsible for the country's excellent educational system, as education receives 18% of the country's budget. As a result, South African colleges are among the greatest in Africa, if not the entire globe. Because the majority of South Africans are literate, the country's illiteracy rate has dropped dramatically.

3. Mauritius

Mauritius' educational growth began during the period of British colonisation. After winning independence, they continued to follow the British model, which has had a significant impact on the country to this day. Mauritius, a riverine territory surrounded by the Pacific, promotes tourism activities and educational development. The country ranks third on the list with an estimated literacy rate of 84.4 percent.

With 61 points, Mauritius has the third greatest education system in Africa. It is ranked 74th in the world in terms of education system, 40th in terms of staff training, and 47th in terms of vocational training quality.
