The rapid development of the economic potential of the People’s Republic of China arouses great interest in the study of the educational system of this country. Education is the basis of any kind of economic and social growth, and in order to understand these processes, it is necessary to clearly understand the levels of training of students at all stages of education. The purpose of the study is to analyze and determine the levels of education in the People’s Republic of China. Research methods consisted of: theoretical research methods: analysis of reference, legal, psychological-pedagogical and educational-methodical literature and generalization of these data in accordance with the purpose of the research. During the study, it was determined that the system of formal education in the PRC includes a number of levels such as the school level divided into 3 levels, then there is the level of university education, which is divided into two levels, bachelor and master, and there is also a postgraduate/doctoral level. Separately, it is necessary to highlight professional colleges and specialized colleges aimed at training specialists in various spheres of the national economy. That is, we see a system of education levels very similar to the Ukrainian one, which greatly simplifies the perception and adaptation of applicants who come to study in the PRC and vice versa. Separately, it is necessary to say about the years of study in higher education, where there are some differences in the link of master’s and postgraduate studies, where they are allocated up to 4 years, which differs from the Ukrainian version by a maximum of 1.8. years in master’s and 4 and 2 in postgraduate and doctoral studies.
