Spe­cial­ist train­ing in higher ed­u­ca­tion in­sti­tu­tions of the Repub­lic of Azer­bai­jan has three steps:

At the bach­e­lor's de­gree, a wide range of highly-qual­i­fied specialists is be­ing trained. Grad­u­ates from the bach­e­lor's de­gree in higher ed­u­ca­tion are given a "bach­e­lor's" de­gree of higher pro­fes­sional ed­u­ca­tion. Grad­u­ates of the bach­e­lor's de­gree in the field of labor ac­tiv­ity cover all other ar­eas ex­cept sci­en­tific-ped­a­gog­i­cal ac­tiv­ity in ed­u­ca­tion in­sti­tu­tions and sci­en­tific re­search.

At the mas­ter’s de­gree stage, a spe­cial­ist with a higher ed­u­ca­tion is pre­pared, who has the right to en­gage in sci­en­tific and ped­a­gog­i­cal ac­tiv­ity. Study­ing in the mag­is­tracy ends with the de­fense of the mas­ter's the­sis and grad­u­ates who suc­cess­fully de­fend their work are awarded a de­gree.

Doc­toral level pro­vides train­ing of sci­en­tific and sci­en­tific-ped­a­gog­i­cal per­son­nel. Doc­toral ed­u­ca­tion is the high­est level of higher ed­u­ca­tion.

Doc­tor­ate in the Repub­lic of Azer­bai­jan is two-fold and the fol­low­ing aca­demic de­grees are de­fined as Doc­tor of Phi­los­o­phy with in­di­ca­tion of sci­ence fields and Doc­tor of Sciences with in­di­ca­tion of sci­ence fields.

There are two branches of two Rus­sian uni­ver­si­ties, Moscow State Uni­ver­sity named af­ter M. V. Lomonosov and First Moscow State Med­i­cal Uni­ver­sity named af­ter I.M. Sechenov, in Azer­bai­jan. It should be noted that Lomonosov Moscow State Uni­ver­sity took the first place in the rank­ing.
