Our Foundation Program consists of two compulsory courses (English and ICT). The program can be completed in a minimum of one academic year and a maximum of two academic years.

The main objective of our center is to provide a supportive English learning environment for Baku Higher Oil School students as well as to tailor students as modern specialists to the world standards. English Language and Humanitarian Disciplines Center offers a Foundation Course since 2012 with a highly skilled and experienced staff.

The students of BHOS Foundation Program are taught in classes of 8 to 10 students by highly qualified tutors. They are offered personal support throughout the program and have access to world-class facilities.

Crash Course for Beginners

This intensive English course is specifically designed to meet the needs of students who just started learning English.

With some serious commitment, our 2-week course can give your English language skills a big boost.

Our dedicated staff works hard to conduct intensive English classes based on contemporary methods and help the freshmen to reach the required level of proficiency in the English language.

As medium of instruction is English, the prerequisite for all three degree programs (Oil-Gas Engineering, Chemical Engineering and Process Automation Engineering) is IELTS minimum 6.0 (minimum 5.5 in each section), and students are required to complete Foundation Program successfully to  declare their majors. Thus, the main priority for Foundation Course is to teach English perfectly well in the first year of a 5-year undergraduate study program.

The applicants are not asked to join Foundation Course on condition that they already hold IELTS/TOEFL certificates as a proof of English language proficiency. They have to submit their certificates to our Center at the beginning of the academic year and certainly can proceed their BSc Program.


We provide a stimulating environment for students in 10-student classes in order to increase effectiveness with minimum number of learners in all groups.  Intensive English classes are taught in fully-facilitated rooms with state-of-the-art resources for teaching English. All English program materials are delivered professionally supported by audio-video equipment and cutting-edge technology. The evaluation of academic performance of students is taken on particular assessment criteria determined by our lecturers.
