The University of Glasgow received our first student from Azerbaijan in 1913, and today we have a small, but dedicated number of students studying mostly on Social Sciences programmes, including scholars with Ministry of Education and SOCAR scholarships.
There are very strong links between Azerbaijan and Scotland – you’ll be surprised of how many you hear about when you come and study with us, whether the Celtic Supporters Club in Baku, or the number of taxi drivers with family members working in the oil industry in Azerbaijan. We also share your love of shopping, eating well, and socialising.
The University will consider applicants with good grades at Attestat and one of the following qualifications:
A) A-Levels or International Baccalaureate. For information on specific grade requirements please refer to our online prospectus
B) One year of study at a recognised Azerbaijani Higher Education Institute on a relevant degree programme with a minimum GPA of 3/4 or 4/5; OR
C) A pass on a recognised foundation programme. Our partner, Glasgow International College offers preparation courses to international students who wish to study with us but do not meet our academic entry requirements.
We welcome applications from students with Bachelor degrees with a minimum GPA of 3/4 or 4.2/5.

Students who choose to be counselled by an agency should expect the following standards of service:
- Representatives will support students throughout the application process, providing advice and assistance in the preparation/submission of documents. It is, however, the applicant who must remain ultimately responsible for their account and the management of communications.
- Representatives will have full access to student data contained within the application form and may manage a student application by discussing all aspects of the application with the University of Glasgow.
- Representatives should be honest and accurate in communicating information about the University to the student and vice versa. At no time should representatives disseminate false or misleading information to the student or to the University.
- Representatives will conduct themselves with fairness and integrity at all times and are subject to a rigorous selection and ongoing training process by the University of Glasgow.
- Representatives are paid by the University for their services and will not pass on charges to prospective students.
