University looks to grow worldwide presence through Kazakhstan campus

Astana - the capital city of Kazakhstan

Coventry University Group is considering growing its worldwide presence by teaming up with a subsidiary of Primus Education to establish an international campus in Kazakhstan.

The planned campus in Astana would provide a range of bachelor’s and master’s degree programmes, gradually introduced over the next few years.

Coventry University Group and Primus Education will explore working together on teacher training and educational programs at the campus.

Professor John Latham CBE, vice-chancellor of Coventry University, said: “We have a wonderful opportunity to help Kazakhstan address a need which has been identified within its education system. We are extremely excited to be in discussions to help Kazakhstan with its vision for future education in the country.

“We have established collaborations with more than 70 universities and colleges worldwide and currently offer transnational education to more than 21,000 students globally. Our network spans across all continents and our hopes for Kazakhstan demonstrate Coventry University’s commitment to learners in Asia.”

Alister Bartholomew, president of Primus Education, said: “The proposed development of Coventry University Kazakhstan is an exciting opportunity for both students and the nation. This step aligns with Kazakhstan’s strategic vision to become a regional educational hub, enhancing access to UK degrees and making world-class learning more attainable.

“The government’s progressive policies are essential to this success, fostering an environment that supports academic excellence and embraces best educational practices.”
