Khazar students visited the Military Trophies Park

On May 4, 2021, more than 70 students (from 49 countries) from 29 higher education institutions, including 3 students from Khazar University, visited the Military Trophies Park. During the visit, the students were informed in detail about the 44-day Karabakh War by the guides and representatives of the Ministry of Education, and were acquainted with the techniques used by Armenians against the civilian population and our soldiers. Students from Khazar University gave interviews to Azerbaijan State Television and other news agencies about their impressions.

Luke Adepoju Alamu (Khazar student)

 “As I explored the Militay Trophies park with my fellow international students from Khazar University and other Universities within Azerbaijan, I was happy and filled with excitement. But as happy as I was to witness an open display of military equipment in a miniature construct of the combat environment, I tried to re-live and imagine the plight of the fallen heroes who paid the ultimate price to ensure justice and territorial reclamation for Azerbaijan Republic. I realized how it also served as a painful reminder of the human and material cost of the conflict. I am glad the regions were liberated and returned to its rightful owners”.

“My Erasmus journey in Cadiz” – Aygun Rasulova

How my journey began: Hi, there! I’m Aygun. I am going to tell you about my Erasmus journey in Cadiz, Spain. Universidad de Cádiz is one of our university’s Erasmus+ partners and last semester when I saw a mobility call announcement for this university, I applied for it. After couple of selection stages I was entitled to have the opportunity of studying at Cadiz University for an entire semester. Once I received my invitation letter from the International office of UCA I started collecting the documents required for the visa application which was the most frustrating part for me. I arrived in Cadiz in the beginning of February and will stay here till the end of June. Cadiz University has couple of faculties located in different cities such as Puerto Real, Jerez etc. I am studying at Economics and Business faculty which is in the city of Cadiz itself.

About Cadiz: Now, let me give you brief information about the city of Cadiz. Cadiz is a small, historical city located in southwestern Spain. The city is situated in a peninsula surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean. Cadiz is one of the most visited cities of Andalusian autonomy because of its fabulous beaches, historical vibe and pleasant climate. The locals here are so cheerful and friendly, fortunately, I didn’t have any trouble with getting used to living here. Until the beginning of April all my classes were online but recently, we have started having some face-to-face classes at the campus as well. The Covid-19 restrictions here aren’t so strict at the moment. The public places such as restaurants, cafes, museums, shopping centers etc. operates normally. The main restriction is with the traveling that it’s not allowed to visit cities in other provinces. Despite of the pandemic Erasmus Student Network holds activities such as volleyball matches at the beach, museum tours and other outdoor activities.

Costs of living: As for the cost of living in Cadiz I can say that the Erasmus+ grant is totally enough to fully enjoy the city. However, note that students receive the grant 3-4 weeks after their arrival to the host university. Till then all costs are born by the students themselves.

Some advice for future students: Generally, the only difficulty I am facing here is the language problem. Unfortunately, locals usually don’t speak English. So, a small tip from me is that you had better learn some Spanish before coming here.

All in all, I would say that this is a unique experience from which I have already gained a lot of things. I would recommend all the students considering Erasmus+ exchange program not to miss this lifetime chance and go for it. This experience will yield you a greater vision and knowledge and of course unforgettable memories.

                                                              

                                                                                                           

Azerbaijan through the eyes of Mr. Juan Rodrigo Labardini Flores, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the United Mexican States to the Republic of Azerbaijan

Dear students, we invite you to the Instagram page of Mr. Ambassador (Instagram: @rodrigolabardini).

Mr. Ambassador: The photographs are a reflection of the journey that started with pictures I took of my son born 21 years ago. I liked the photographs because he is my son. But to be frank, deep inside me I knew the photographs were lacking several elements, composition, creativity, lighting, and many other issues. Starting at that time, I began the quest to find the perfect photo for my children. Ever since, I have been in this saga, making several mistakes, and learning the hard way. While there will always be opportunities to improve and develop a better picture, it all seems to come to fruition. You will see the results on my Instagram account (@rodrigolabardini). I am posting one picture daily, mainly from Azerbaijan, but there will be occasional pictures from other places I have visited during my life. The pictures of Azerbaijan are presented follow the general idea of “Azerbaijan, from within, from outside”, since I am currently living in Azerbaijan, but I am from outside. They present the same places and some new ones, but with a different air. Hence, they also portray the Azerbaijan that has surprised and amazed me, as I have seen and lived in a city that surpasses imagination, food that mesmerizes all of us and makes us want to savor more and to uncover the paths to views and life.
