Partnership with the New University of Astana
On 18 February 2010, UCL signed a partnership agreement with the New University of Astana (NUA), Kazakhstan.
In March 2006 UCL was delighted to sign an agreement with the Center for International Programs (CIP) in Astana to facilitate the admission of Bolashak Scholars. We are pleased to be working so closely with the CIP on this long-term initiative enabling Bolashak Scholars to study at UCL across a broad range of programmes.
