Azerbaijan

Royal Holloway has been visiting Azerbaijan since 2009 and has already proved to be a very popular choice for Azerbaijani students.

We are very pleased to have 16 Azerbaijani students currently studying at undergraduate and postgraduate level. The majority of these students have chosen courses relating to International Management or Economics, as well as Politics and International Relations.

We also have a number of Azerbaijani students on our International Foundation Programme.

We work closely with the British Council and a number of international schools in Baku.

The Regional Officer responsible for Azerbaijan is Niall Mullins. If you have any questions about Royal Holloway or making an application please do not hesitate to contact him at Niall.Mullins@rhul.ac.uk.
