The International Relations Department, one of the most prominent and prestigious institutions within al-Farabi KazNU, celebrated its twenty third anniversary this year.

The Department is originated in the difficult and complex times of formation and consolidation of Kazakhstan’s statehood. Since then we have passed a large and eventful path. Today the International Relations Department is the main educational and scientific center which makes a great contribution in training of highly qualified specialists in the field of international affairs. The Department successfully employs the most pioneering techniques and teaching methods. It is fairly considered as the leading forge of personnel in the field of international relations and foreign policy, international law and the world economy.

The academic achievements of the Department are impressive. The Faculty professors and teachers published more than a thousand scientific articles including those which were published abroad. Their scientific work was dedicated to actual problems of international relations in international law and the world economy, which contributed to the development of these areas of science. There are hundreds of books and articles on both research and teaching matters. Their number has exceeded one thousand, including those which were published abroad.

Due to its academic and teaching advancement, the Department has gained its prominent place within the academia of Kazakhstan and beyond. The Department has been maintaining tight, fruitful and sustainable partner relationships with a number of the most reputable Universities throughout the country and internationally.Graduates of the Department work productively in executive and legislative organs of Kazakhstan’s government, namely in the Parliament and Government Apparatus, Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Also they lead the diplomatic missions abroad and managed to win fame and pride of their alma mater.

We are firmly committed to enhancing our environmental management and performance through strategies, policies, risk management and procedures. ‘Sustainability’ is one of the core values of the University, and aim to provide ‘an enabling environment’ – so that the campus infrastructure, facilities, and activities are managed, developed and monitored in a sustainable manner.We believe our vibrant and attractive campus environment, excellent benefits, development opportunities, and campus activities, provide a great place to work and nurture a desired work/life balance. 

We conceived a brand of education, and later research, which was overwhelmingly geared towards the needs of industry and, echoing the spirit and vision of our university. Our ambition was to equip students for the world of work and to address society’s challenges on a global scale.

The challenges have changed, but our aims are as innovative and ambitious as they always were – to develop research and educational programmed informed by, and tailor-made for, those who benefit; and to give students the academic education and personal skills needed to become a success in the real world.

This publication identifies five distinct areas of focus – each of which underpins our vision until 2030. It recognises the values upon which Al-Farabi Kazakh Nation l University’s success is founded. And, though our strategy as educators and innovators will change in the intervening years, these goals, values and vision will remain at the heart of everything we do and the driving force behind our future achievements, ensuring Al-Farabi Kazakh national university continues to meet the needs of a changing world until 2030 and beyond.
