Azerbaijan, Baku, Feb. 17 / Trend M. Aliyev /

Age restrictions on admission in doctorate will be annulled in Azerbaijan, Vice-President of the Azerbaijani National Academy of Sciences Arif Hashimov told Trend on Wednesday.

According to him, new rules of admission in doctorate are in line with 'Law on Education'. Everyone has the right to education.

Moreover, there will be two levels of scientific personnel - Doctor of Philosophy and Doctor of Science. "The rules of admission stress that candidates for doctorate must have a master degree", Hashimov said.

According to Vice-President, new rules of admission in doctorate were prepared by the Ministry of Education and the Azerbaijani National Academy of Sciences. They were submitted to the Cabinet of Ministers for approval. "After approving of the rules people will be admitted in doctorate this year," Hashimov said.

The Azerbaijani Parliament approved a new law "Education" in June 2009.
