This program is for students with an interest in directly enrolling in an Azerbaijani university, taking courses in English, and learning about the geopolitics of the Caspian sea region.

Students who are successful on this program will be looking for a challenge, be comfortable with a high level of ambiguity and understand the challenges of making new friends in a foreign environment.


Students following a lectureFounded in 2006 under the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Azerbaijan, ADA University serves as the primary training ground for future diplomats. Since that time, ADA has become one of the most prestigious universities in the region offering undergraduate and graduate programs in international relations, public affairs public policy, business, computer science and engineering.


All courses are taught in English and international students have the opportunity to take Russian, Chinese Spanish, Arabic and French language classes. Non credit classes in Azerbaijani are also available. Course descriptions can be found on the ADA website.

Student will also be able to take course at the Masters level within the School of Public and International Affairs.

Keep in mind that courses are not guaranteed, and students should have a high level of flexibility in which courses they take at ADA; course schedules will be finalized upon arrival in Baku - not before. ADA uses the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS). In order to convert ECTS credit to AU credits, you need to dive by 2 and round up. For example, a course listed as 6 credits at ADA would equal 3 credits at AU.
