Academic Mobility

Proclaimed by the European Union freedom of movement of labor power required to enable students to take part of their training in other universities in the country or abroad. In addition, the rapid obsolescence of  knowledge  also requires continuation of  education after graduation. As  a  result  in  the mid  80s in Europe  student mobility programs began to develop.

Within the framework of the Bologna  process  one of the main goals  was proclaimed -  to increase academic and professional mobility through increased freedom of choice of educational trajectory and the possibility of accumulation of credits to European citizens throughout the training period.


Open educational space implies an increase of mobility of university students from different  countries, which as it is expected, will contribute to the success  of the citizens in their chosen profession, will  improve the system of employment of university graduates and improve the status of these countries in the field of education.


In accordance with the State Program of Education Development of the Republic of Kazakhstan for 2011- 2020. the development of academic mobility is one of the target indicators, as the realization of one of the principles of the Bologna Declaration. Academic mobility of students is one of the priorities of the university, which  helps  to  improve the quality of education and  the efficiency of research as well as the  establishment of internal and external integration ties.

Academic Mobility – is the  movement of  students, masters, doctoral students or lecturers for teaching, studying, training or carrying  out a research during a particular academic period (a semester or an academic year) at another higher education institution (within the country - internal academic mobility or abroad - foreign academic mobility).

After training, studying or carrying out a research in the prescribed order the re-calculation  of educational programs in the form of credits at the home university should be done.


Academic mobility of students of KSU named after A.Baitursynov  is made ​​within the framework of intercollegiate contracts / agreements or joint projects.
