         Investment in education through integration into international educational space is of top priority of Abai KazNPU`s international activity.

     KazNPU`s International Cooperation Department took several actions aiming to widen the University`s international activities and strengthening its credibility on a global scale.

      Abai Kazakh  National  Pedagogic University is well-recognized high school and was the first Kazakh pedagogic university to sign Great Magna Charta Universitatum in Bologna, Italy, in 2007.

      Cooperation with foreign universities covers various fields like teacher and students exchange, joint conferences, designing educational programs etc.

      So far the  Abai KazNPU  signed cooperation agreements with 250 foreign universities in France, Ukraine, Great Britain, the USA, Belgium, Spain, Italy, the Russian Federation, Germany, the Peoples Republic of China, Lithuania, Korea etc. One of the most prestigious fields of international cooperation is Double-Degree Programs, which are an important channel of practical integration of Kazakh high schools into international educational space. The following foreign universities are involved in the said Program:

  • Moscow State Pedagogical University (Russia)
  • Jan Amos Komensky University (Prague, Czech Republic)
  • Mykolas Romeris University (Vilnius, Lithuania)
  • Siberian Federal University (Russia)
  • l`Université de Toulouse (France)

        Teacher and student (both bachelor and master) exchange is also one of the most important fields of cooperation with partner universities. Thus, yearly 6 students and 1 lecturer from Han Xian University undertake one-year course at KazNPU named after Abai and the same number of our students and lecturers visit the said university every year. Also, two students from Philological Faculty went for six-month course to South Korea this year as it was envisaged in the exchange program with Kwan Dong University.
