According to topschoolsintheusa.com, Azerbaijan is a country located in the South Caucasus region of Eurasia, bordered by Russia to the north, Georgia to the northwest, Armenia to the west and Iran to the south. The country has an area of 86,600 square kilometers (33,436 sq mi) and a population of 10 million people. It is home to more than 90 different ethnic groups from various backgrounds. Azerbaijan’s geography is characterized by its diverse landscape which includes mountains, forests and deserts. To the east lies the Greater Caucasus mountain range which consists of high peaks such as Bazarduzu (4,466 m), Shahdag (4,243 m) and Murovdag (3,924 m). In contrast to this are the lowland plains in the center of Azerbaijan which make up most of its territory. The Kur-Araz Lowland is a large plain located in northwestern Azerbaijan which extends from Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic to Iran’s border while another lowland area known as Aran lies in southeastern Azerbaijan near Iran’s border. The educational system in Azerbaijan consists of four levels: pre-primary education (ages 3-6), primary school (ages 6-10), secondary school (ages 10-14) and tertiary education (university level). Pre-primary education is optional but highly encouraged for children aged 3-6 while primary school is free and compulsory for all children aged 6-10. Secondary schools offer specialized courses such as engineering, finance or hospitality management while tertiary education is provided by universities offering degrees in various disciplines including business administration, computer science, engineering and medicine. Students may also pursue professional studies such as law or medicine at specialized institutes called “faculties”. The government provides financial assistance to students attending university through grants and student loans while also offering scholarships for students from low income families or those who demonstrate academic excellence. Additionally, subsidies are provided for private universities so that higher education can be accessible for more people in Azerbaijan. International partnerships with countries like France, Germany and Russia have been established so that student exchange programs can be facilitated along with other collaborations between universities around the world. Furthermore, initiatives have been developed with aims at improving access to higher education such as scholarships specifically designed for international students or programs providing financial support for research projects conducted by Azerbaijani faculty members at foreign institutions.
