Khazar University International Scholarship Program 2015-2016
I. Program Statement
Khazar University is the first private University in the South Caucasus that started implementing international education programs with English language as a medium of instruction. Pursuant to its policy and service commitments the University is proud to announce the Khazar University International Scholarship Program for 2015-2016 (further referred to as KUISP) extended to nationals of all countries without any limitation.
II. General Principles
The guiding principles of the program are as follows:
– All foreign citizens are eligible for the Khazar University Scholarship Program further referred to as KUISP.
– KUISP is available for potential students of all four schools of the University.
– As the School of Education conducts its courses in the Azerbaijani language, the scholarships for enrollment in that school are designated for applicants with sufficient Azerbaijani-Turkish language skills (native Azerbaijani speakers who are citizens of foreign countries; citizens of Turkey and Iran).
– Applicants to bachelor, master and PhD programs are eligible to apply for KUISP.
– Every year two scholarships, each covering the cost of the full tuition fee, will be awarded to citizens of each country who apply to Khazar University programs.
– The scholarship is provided for one year subject to prolongation based on the academic performance of the grantee.
– The scholarship covers the cost of the tuition fee for the whole program term, but does not cover living and travel expenses.
– Khazar University conducts evaluation and the selection of submitted applications via document screening and Skype interviews with shortlisted applicants. The details and the time frame of the selection are specified in the KUISP time schedule (Section IV below).
III. Eligibility Criteria
The successful applicants should meet the following criteria:
