Nazarbayev University and Nur-Sultan (Astana)
Located in Nur-Sultan (Astana), Nazarbayev University is a new Western-style, research-oriented, English-language institution created with the support of leading universities around the world, including: Cambridge University, Duke University, National University of Singapore, University of Pennsylvania, University of Pittsburg, University of Wisconsin-Madison, and the Colorado School of Mines. The University aspires to become a world-class research university and to provide the highest quality education in Central Asia.
The university benefits from its location in Nur-Sultan, Kazakhstan’s new capital city. Founded only two decades ago, Nur-Sultan has blossomed into a thriving modern metropolis with a population of over one million, including expats from over 100 countries. Described as “brash and grandiose—and wildly attractive” by National Geographic and as “the futuristic frontier of architecture” by the Guardian, the city successfully hosted the 2017 World Expo. With easy, direct access to airline hubs such as Frankfurt (5½ hours), London (6 hours) Nur-Sultan boasts not only modern architecture, but also a vibrant cultural scene with museums, an opera house, bars, restaurants to suit every palette and a rich night life.
Located on the borders of the Ancient Silk Route and rich in natural resources, Kazakhstan has experienced extraordinary economic growth since it gained independence from the Soviet Union in 1991. The country of 16 million people is currently considered an Upper Middle Income Country by the World Bank. It is consistently ranked as one of the world’s top 20 destinations for foreign direct investment (FDI) and one of the top tourist destinations in the region.
