Kazakhstani universities are actively cooperating with foreign universities
Kazakhstani universities are actively cooperating with foreign universities. Such interaction allows us to bring science to a new level. The flagship of domestic education, Nazarbayev University, is a co-founder of the Alliance of Asian Universities and a member of the Alliance of Universities of the Silk Road. It was on this site that during his official visit to Kazakhstan, Chinese President Xi Jinping, announced the idea of reviving the ancient route, which later developed into a global initiative "One Belt, One Road."
XI JINPING, PRESIDENT OF CHINA:
- "In order to strengthen economic ties, deepen cooperation and expand the space for the development of the Eurasian countries, we can create a new model of cooperation and join efforts to form the Economic belt of the new Silk Road, which, in my opinion, will be very beneficial to the nations of all countries on the Great Silk Road."
Nazarbayev University is actively involved in training and implementation of projects within ‘One Belt, One Road’ initiative.
DANIEL DUSHMANOV, DEPARTMENT MANAGER, NAZARBAYEV UNIVERSITY:
- The visit of such an important guest provokes super-positive emotions. I was excited to see him. I was proudly saying that I personally met Mr. Xi Jinping, heard about the relationship between the two countries from the president himself.
Nazarbayev University is frequently visited by famous people. Almost all the leaders of the countries visited Kazakhstan. The university, adopting the best practices of the world's leading universities, is called the UN mini model where professors and teachers from 55 countries share their knowledge.
DI WANG, STUDENT, NAZARBAYEV UNIVERSITY:
- I like subjects I study here, and the teachers. Unfortunately, not many students in China know about this university but I would recommend them. It's a good university.
Di Wang says it was Nazarbayev University that let her dreams come true - to learn about Central Asia. Nazarbayev University management strengthens ties with colleagues from China so more Chinese students would know about the Kazakhstani alma mater.
ALIYA KAIMOLDINOVA, STAFF, NAZARBAYEV UNIVERSITY:
- At present, we are closely cooperating with such universities as Tsinghua University, Fudana, Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Shanghai University, Renmin University of China. Two summer schools have already been held this year as part of our cooperation. About 60-70 Chinese students entered the university.
15 universities from 13 countries are part of the Alliance of Asian Universities, including Nazarbayev University.
