«Since its foundation, RKCTU has been fruitfully realizing mutual programs and showing good results in education in their field. It gives joy to see that nowadays Kyrgyz students continue to get demanded specialties in Russian Universities. The Consortium’s efforts have given an opportunity of receiving Russian education to the vast amount of Kyrgyz and contributed to the development of Russian and Kyrgyz economies and strengthening of the friendship ties»,— said Zhyldyz Bakashova.
Apart from that, the sides decided to broaden the framework of preparing specialists by including doctorate studies and retraining.
The Russian-Kyrgyz consortium of technical universities was created in 2013 within the support of the Ministry of Education and Science of the two countries and is a voluntary association of Russian and Kyrgyz universities. The Consortium embraces 36 Russian and 17 Kyrgyz universities.
