Health Care: If you need medical tratment due to a sickness or injry during your studies, there is no need to worry, as Azerbaijan is well equipped with a lot of state hospitals and private hospitals and clinics. We advice all students to get Azerbaijan health insurance that cover their medical charges (except dentistry, plastic surgery and pregnancy-related conditions) in the state and private hospitals. With this health insurance, students can get routine check-ups or visit emergency room in the public hospitals and Clinic’s, and they could also have surgeries done for free at these institutions.In state and private hospitals, Azerbaijani, Russian and English is widely spoken and all staff is fully trained in their line of work. The private hospitals generally have the same facilities as the state hospitals but the patients can stay in private room with en-suite bathrooms. The cost of private health care is affordable and the treatment is excellent. For minor problems, health centres at university campuses and the local pharmacies (locally known as Aptek) can deal with most complaints and can dispense most medication over the counter.
