Representatives of Hungarian Embassy visit Baku Higher Oil School


            Representatives of the Embassy of Hungary in Azerbaijan visited Baku Higher Oil School (BHOS).


            The embassy representatives – Diplomat on Energy and Security Issues Mr. Peter Cech and Diplomat on Education Issues Mr. Mihali Gruber – first made a tour of the BHOS campus.


              Then, they met with BHOS Vice-Rector for Training and Science Zafar Gurbanov. During the meeting, Zafar Gurbanov gave the guests detailed information about Higher School.


               He noted that the most talented young people in the country prefer to study at Baku Higher Oil School.


              “There are a total of 102 presidential scholarship holders in the country, most of whom are BHOS students. Our school has achieved success thanks to the establishment of close cooperation with well-known foreign companies, the implementation of joint research projects with foreign universities, undertaking by BHOS students an internship in foreign companies on a regular basis, and the openness of our students to innovations and world trends. All this created favorable conditions for the school to train engineers meeting international standards,” the vice rector said.


              Zafar Gurbanov also emphasized the importance of expanding cooperation in the field of education.


              Diplomat on Education Issues of the Embassy of Hungary Mr. Mihali Gruber noted that issues related to the training of foreign students in Hungary as part of  scholarship and exchange programs have already fallen within the competence of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Hungary and that these issues are addressed through the Embassies of Hungary in the respective countries.


              Mr. Mihali Gruber said that foreign students can receive education in Hungary through participation in the scholarship programs Stipendium Hungaricum, Visheqrad, the exchange program Erasmus + and other exchange programs. He stressed that every year, the Government of Hungary provides scholarships to 200 students from Azerbaijan so that they could continue their studies at state universities in Hungary.


             “The scholarships are mainly provided to students studying in priority areas such as agriculture, tourism, information technologies, engineering, and natural sciences,” the diplomat added.


             During the meeting, an exchange of views took place on the prospects for cooperation, the implementation of student and teacher exchange programs, and the establishment of contacts in the field of scientific research.
