UCA Summer Upgrading Camp 2018

The UCA Summer Upgrading Camp 2018 is a two-week residential academic enrichment camp designed to upgrade maths and English skills among Grade 10 students living in Tajikistan, the Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan and ensure they are ready for a world-class university education.

Summer Camp curricula are designed by North American educational experts and adapted to fit the needs of Central Asian students, and English is taught by international English language teachers.

Camp sessions follow a rigorous schedule combining academics with other learning opportunities. Participants spend four hours studying English and one hour studying maths daily. Participants will receive information and resources to enhance their success with university applications, including sessions on how to apply to university; choose a programme of study based on career interests; and prepare for university entrance requirements. Other activities, including sports, drama, debating and field trips, will provide additional opportunities for participants to practice English-language skills and share experiences with fellow campers.

The Summer Upgrading Camp will be held at UCA's Campus in Naryn, Kyrgyzstan.

"UCA's Summer and Winter upgrading programmes motivated me to study more, learn English, and also improved my communication skills. I worked hard and passed UCA's entry exam with great results. I appreciate that I am a student of this university, and will try my best to be one of the best students at UCA."
