İmtahanın nəticəsindən razı qalmayan tələbələr iyunun 12-də appelyasiyaya müraciət edə bilər.
The approved list of young people who successfully pass the exam for UFAZ master's degree program will be submitted to the Ministry of Education and the State Examination Center on June 16, and the young people on the list will not attend the competition for other universities.
Young people who take the exam for UFAZ master's degree program but do not succeed can make a choice among the relevant specialties offered by ASOIU, as well as other universities, based on their points they collected in the centralized entrance exam organized by SEC.
Notably, students who obtained more than 60 points during the examination organized by the State Examination Center (SEC), had the right to apply for UFAZ Master’s Degree Programs. Applicants who take the UFAZ entrance exam and that are not selected will still have the possibility to apply to other higher educational institutions in Azerbaijan.
In total 80 places were allocated for master's degree program and all 80 admitted students are offered governmental places at UFAZ. Thus, students will be able to receive a diploma of ASOIU as well as the University of Strasbourg, one of the most prestigious universities in France without going abroad.
The master's degree program will be conducted by an international academic staff of highly qualified French and Azerbaijani teachers adapted to the French education system.
