Information on the school enrolment procedure in Azerbaijan…

Applications to state primary schools are accepted between 1 June and 30 June, and between 1 August to 15 September.

Enrolment requirements vary between schools. Legal requirements for foreign nationals to enrol a child as a student also vary, but in general are similar to the requirements for a family member visa or residence permit. For the rules for a specific school, check its website or enquire by email.

Children who have been educated overseas in a language other than Azerbaijani or Russian must undergo language tuition before they can be enrolled into a state school. The parents must specify the preferred language on application.
