In 2021, some 33% of Hungarians aged 25-34 years had completed tertiary education, well below the EU average of 41%, according to data released by statistical agency Eurostat.
The only two countries with lower tertiary education attainment were Italy (28%) and Romania (23%).
At the other end of the spectrum, about 63% of young adults in Luxembourg had completed tertiary studies, followed by Ireland (62%), and Cyprus (58%).
The EU Member States have set themselves a target of increasing the share of the EU population aged 25-34 who have completed tertiary education to 45% by 2030, Eurostat notes.
