International Partnership Programs





Since its establishment, the development of international affiliations has become one of the major goals of Khazar University. Khazar considers international networking to be a leading tool for its development and prosperity. There are two main strands for international affiliations in academic and non-academic fields that Khazar has been undertaking:



This strand considers mutual cooperation between Khazar University and an international higher learning institution intended to share human and other resources for the welfare of both. The student, faculty and staff exchange programs and cooperative agreements, including mutual degree recognition agreements and memoranda of understanding are considered the leading tools for successful networking. The following are some of the universities that had and have relations with Khazar under the framework of various partnerships and/or development programs. Some of these activities are ongoing, some others were carried out in the recent past and some of them are in starting point.
