About the University

Arabaev Kyrgyz State University is one of the oldest and largest educational institutions in the Kyrgyz Republic. It is a meeting place for our 17,000 students and 1500 teachers, including a rapidly growing community of international students from Asia, the Middle East, the Americas, Europe, and former Soviet republics. The University has 11 departments with numerous well-equipped classrooms, computer labs with internet access, auditoriums, and dormitories.

Under the ongoing Higher Education Reform, the University is attempting to transform its programs and curriculum to a learner-centered system and develop globally competitive courses. For that reason, the University is eager to increase the number of international students and faculty members in its many affordable and highly respected programs.
