Chairman of the Azerbaijani Parliamentary Committee on Science and Education
Shamsaddin Hajiyev said proposals have been developed related to masters and doctoral degrees.
The amendments stipulate exemption from military service of youth wanting to enroll in master's and doctorate programs, he told journalists today.
"Young people wishing to continue their studies at masters and doctoral programs will probably be exempted from military service in 2011," Hajiyev said.
He said this is a small contingent of young people, around 500, who want to enroll in doctoral studies, and about 2,500 seeking masters candidacy.
