Foreign Universities Welcome Opportunity to Participate in Upcoming Bolashak Conference and Fair

ASTANA – The upcoming Bolashak Alumni Reunion Conference and Education Fair 2014 is drawing the support from some of the very universities whose support is critical for the continued success of the scholarship programme.

Leicester University seeks to strengthen cooperation with Kazakh colleagues and is doing a great job in this direction. Currently, we have students from Kazakhstan who have their so-called Internships or Fellowships and Language Training Courses. We are proud that groups from Kazakh universities chose us as a reliable partner for their Language and Training programmes. Each tailor-made programme is from four to 12 months.

We were glad to receive an invitation from our partner (The Centre for International Programmes) and are ready to take part in the Bolashak Alumni Reunion Conference and Education Fair 2014. Also, we are glad to take this wonderful opportunity to establish new partnerships with representatives of state structures in education and private companies in Kazakhstan.

 I think that such events as the Bolashak Alumni Reunion Conference and Education Fair 2014 have the potential to become a reliable platform for educational institutions to strengthen their positions on an international market of educational services and are a relevant source of information that affects innovative trends in education.

I am sure BARCEF 2014 will lead to long-term partnerships with education agents all over the world.

Norman Parrington, Deputy Director of the Centre for International Development at Teesside University

Teeside University looks forward to BARCEF 2014. Nowadays, our university is a leading education centre of the art industry and by participating in the event, we aim to establish cooperation with representatives of the media and the art industry of Kazakhstan (animation, film making). Also, during our presentations, we plan to highlight technologies in such areas as multimedia and convergent journalism, animation and game technologies. We are interested in discussions of our mutual collaboration in art, academic spheres and research and exchange programmes in Kazakh educational institutions.

Jon W. Stauff, Ph.D., Director of the TCNJ Centre for Global Engagement

Taking part in the event, the College of New-Jersey (TCNJ) hopes to promote joint partnership projects with a number of universities in Kazakhstan and other countries as well, study suggested professional and academic programmes and language training courses and present our scholarship for those Kazakh students who want to study at TCNJ.

We expect that it would be one of the great events of this academic year and would like to thank the Ministry of Education and Science along with the Centre for International Programmes for the invitation and opportunity to meet Kazakh partners. Kazakh education is much of interest for us and we are glad to explore Kazakh students in TCNJ as well as to share our knowledge and experience in education.

Donna Alexander, Director of the Centre for English as a Second Language, on behalf of the University of Oklahoma

The University of Oklahoma, having the new Minister of Education and Science as one of its illustrious alumni, is looking forward to further cooperation with the universities and students of Kazakhstan. We are very pleased to be invited to this important conference and look forward to participating in the development of the vision of education Kazakhstan has for itself and its peoples.
