The importance of international academic standards
Assel Mussabayeva, General Manager of the Graduate School for Public Policy, Nazarbayev University
-We have come here from Astana, and are participating for the first time in the Education exhibition. Nazarbayev University is the first university in Kazakhstan to operate in accordance with international academic standards and be guided by the principles of academic freedom. Our academic and research programmes have been developed in cooperation with the leading top-ranking universities in the world.
We hope to attract Azerbaijani students to study at our university where one of the priorities is to ensure an international mix of students. We are also disseminating information about the opportunities to receive scholarships and grants for free-of-charge education.
We plan to participate in the Education exhibition again in the future. Yesterday was the first day of the exhibition, which we very much enjoyed. The visitors are mainly senior high school pupils. A lot of students approached our stand interested in our master’s and doctoral degree programmes. My opinion: the exhibition has been very interesting!
