One of the main indicators of increasing the internationalization of educational and scientific processes at the Kostanay Regional University named after A.Baitursynuly is the involvement of foreign professors from leading foreign universities.

Professors in the process of exchanging experience give lectures, help in developing joint educational programs and conducting scientific research, act as foreign scientific supervisors for our PhD students, participate in scientific events.

The work on attracting foreign scientists to the university is carried out constantly in the process of cooperation with foreign partner universities and in accordance with the preliminary agreement and the needs of the university.

The main criteria and prerequisites for inviting a foreign scholar are:

  • authority of the scientist in the international academic community, which is confirmed by the experience of work, experience in international activities, publications in scientific publications, recommendations of scientists in the relevant field of activity;
