In Azerbaijan, the state ensures that citizens receive only one public education (free of charge) at each level of higher education, APA reports.
According to the initial version of the draft law “On Higher Education”, Education in higher education institutions operating in Azerbaijan is organized in the Azerbaijani language. Education in educational institutions is ensured to be conducted in other languages on the basis of state standards in the field of higher education. At the same time, it ensures the formation of educational programs in higher education institutions where teaching is conducted in other languages in order to achieve learning outcomes in the Azerbaijani language, literature, history and geography.
