there's a legal age, i.e. 16. but usually people start after tertiary education if they can get that. so that makes average starting age at 19 or 22, depending on what kind of institution you attend. national service is compulsory for men at age 18, so that delays them by 2 years. average starting age for men is thus 21 or 24.
