Collaboration between Shakarim University and University of Applied Sciences named after Jan Amos Comenius (Leszno City, Poland) is successfully going on.
Today Shakarim University has become known to a wider circle of the population. We have opened a Polish-Kazakh centre in the Republic of Poland in Leszno.
The rector of the University of Applied Sciences named after Jan Amos Comenius Matsej Pietrzhak, the rector of our University Meir Eskendirov, the Consul of the Republic of Kazakhstan in the Republic of Poland Bakytzhan Bulegenov and the mayor of Leszno Lucas Borovac took part in the solemn ceremony.
Now, along with the Polish culture, Leszno residents will be able to familiarize with the culture of the Kazakh people. So the national cultural centre presents exhibits and souvenirs of our history. The books by Abai Qunanbaiuly, Shakarim Kudaiberdiev, national costumes and traditional Kazakh things are now available to study for the whole Poland residents. In addition, the gifts from our University took the place of honor in the the Polish-Kazakh centre.
During the presentation of the Centre a student of Shakarim University read a poem by Abai Qunanbaiuly in Kazakh, then the same poem was read in Polish by a teacher of University of Applied Sciences named after Jan Amos Comenius.
During the presentation of our center rector Meir Eskendirov met the students and the mayor of Leszno Lucas Borovac. In addition, on this day, the rectors of two universities signed an agreement on joint double degree program which will provide an opportunity for Kazakhstani students to obtain European diploma.
It is worth noting that just two weeks passed after the publishing of the President Message and Shakarim University has already started to implement the aims set by the President into the University work plan. So in the seventh direction, Nursultan Nazarbayev says that higher education institutions need to implement actively joint projects with leading foreign universities and research centers.
Organizers note that the opening of our Center in Poland will allow many people to become acquainted with Kazakhstan and Shakarim University, to establish close cooperation and to implement joint projects. It should be noted that there is no analogue of the Polish-Kazakh centre in higher education institutions in Poland.
