The higher education system in the Azerbaijan Republic consists of the following types of state or private institutions: universities, academies, institutes, colleges and conservatories. One of the most important recent reforms is the transition to a multi-level system of higher professional education in compliance with the Law on Education. This reform began in 1993. Institutions have the right to choose their approach to the multi-level education of specialists, determine the contents of this education, and draw up academic plans for these disciplines. Several institutions have started to offer the Master since as early as 1997. The only restrictions are those imposed by the requirements of state educational standards to maintain a minimum of knowledge. The institutions' right to autonomy is guaranteed by the Law on Education. They have also acquired independence in financial and management matters, thus they can therefore obtain their own financial resources.
