金正恩早期教育的细节多种多样，存在争议。 然而，据信，从1993年到2000年，他参加了瑞士的各种预科学校，出于安全目的在假名和身份上注册。 大多数消息来源表明，从2002年到2007年，Jong-un参加了平壤的金日成大学和金日成军事大学。 据报道，他获得了金日成大学的物理学学位，并被委任为军事学校的军官。 长期以来人们一直认为，金正恩的长兄弟金正男将接替金正日。 然而，金正男据说在2001年试图以假护照进入日本时失去了父亲的信任。
The details of Kim Jong-un’s early education are diverse and controversial. However, it is believed that from 1993 to 2000 he participated in various preparatory schools in Switzerland and registered for pseudonyms and identities for security purposes. Most sources indicated that from 2002 to 2007, Jong-un participated in Kim Il Sung University and Kim Il Sung Military University in Pyongyang. According to reports, he obtained a degree in physics from Kim Il Sung University and was appointed as an officer of a military school. For a long time, people have always believed that Kim Jong-un’s long brother Kim Jong-nam will succeed Kim Jong-il. However, Kim Jong-nam is said to have lost his father’s trust when he tried to enter Japan with a fake passport in 2001.
