Higher School of Economics and UCA Partnership
Representatives from the National Research University’s Higher School of Economics (HSE) in Moscow and the University of Central Asia (UCA) in Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan met at the Naryn Campus in Kyrgyzstan to review UCA’s Russian language curriculum. While UCA’s curriculum is in English, Russian courses will be offered to enhance students’ academic and professional writing skills, ensuring professional proficiency upon graduation.
The visit on October 2nd-6th included meetings with faculty, staff and students, as well as workshops on teaching the Russian language. HSE and UCA signed an agreement of cooperation in February 2017 for curriculum development, which also includes developing Russian language writing courses for delivery at UCA’s campuses in Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Kazakhstan.
