Dear students, parents, university staff!

The International University of Kyrgyzstan (IUK) is a relatively young university. Established in 1993, at the dawn of the Kyrgyzstan’s independence, it has gone through a difficult and thorny path of its development together with our country.

We have kept up with the times on this path, were not afraid to be the first, to go forward, to introduce something new and progressive, to preserve the best traditions.

We are proud that in such difficult times we have managed to collect and preserve within the walls of the university the significant part of the intellectual layer of our country, dedicated professionals who, despite the difficulties, conduct administrative, research, educational activities, pass on their knowledge to the new generation.

We believe that it is the new generation of young people with modern knowledge and true values that will be able to change the course of the history of our state to the direction of progress, building a rightful and strong state. This faith gives us strength in our work.

Today, the IUK has been transformed into the Academic Consortium “International University of Kyrgyzstan”, which is a major intellectual hub of the country, that includes a number of universities, colleges, research centers, medical clinics and other institutions. The university campuses are located in Bishkek and in the regions of the country.

Nowadays, the university has more than two thousand employees and more than 14,000 students, a significant part of whom are students from foreign countries.

The University staff is constantly working to improve curricula, their international recognition. Cooperation with leading foreign universities and research centers is conducted actively.

The University is involved into a number of national and international projects aimed at finding the solutions of the state and modern world’s urgent problems.

We pay special attention to the students’ upbringing who, from the first days of their admission, find themselves in the environment where the spirit of creativity, freedom, innovation reigns and there is no place for hypocrisy, lies, ignorance, and corruption.

We are proud with the achievements of our graduates, many of whom have achieved great success in their careers and personal lives.
