Further education

Further education is education in addition to that received at secondary school. It may be at the same level, at a higher level, or at a lower level than secondary education, anything from basic training to a PhD.

A form of this is higher education (also known as tertiary education), which is education at a higher level than secondary education. In the United Kingdom, colleges normally handle the types of further education which are not classed as higher education, while universities, polytechnics, and institutes of technology[?] normally handle higher education. However, there is often some overlap.
