Catalog of Additional Educational Programs (Minor)

Additional educational program (Minor) is a set of disciplines and (or) modules and other types of educational work defined by the student for study in order to form additional competencies (Rules for organizing the educational process on credit technology of education Order of the Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Kazakhstan dated 12.10.2018 No. 563).

The student, when determining the individual learning trajectory within the framework of the university component and (or) the component of choice, chooses:

  • disciplines in the main educational program (Major)
  • disciplines in the additional educational program (Minor).
Minor is an important component of the new educational model of the bachelor's degree, the implementation of which was launched at the Kostanay Regional University named after A.Baitursynov in 2020. Unlike Major (an educational program defined by the student for studying in order to form key competencies), Minor is a block of four interrelated disciplines of a non–core training area for a student.

Students from the 2nd year, when determining an individual learning trajectory, can replace disciplines from the main educational program with an additional educational program in the total amount of -20 credits.

A separate CAD is being developed for an additional educational program

The procedure for choosing and mastering disciplines in an additional educational program is carried out to obtain additional competencies in related or specialized subjects, as well as to meet the personal needs of the student

The disciplines of additional OP are studied by students within the framework of the disciplines of VC and CV and their volume is included in the total amount of academic credits required for awarding the appropriate degree or qualification in the main OP.

Each student is required to choose one Minor to study. Minor is studied in the third and fourth year of bachelor's degree.
