THE CENTER FOR THE BOLOGNA PROCESS AND ACADEMIC MOBILITY OF THE MSHE IS REORGANIZED INTO THE NATIONAL CENTER FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF HIGHER EDUCATION
The mission of the National Center for the Development of Higher Education is to improve the quality of higher education in Kazakhstan based on best practices, research and the promotion of academic freedom of universities.
Therefore, the functions of the updated Center, along with monitoring the parameters of the Bologna process and the recognition of foreign documents on education, are focused on comprehensive scientific, methodological, informational, analytical and methodological support for the development of the system of higher and postgraduate education.
The activities of the Center to support the process of implementing the parameters of the Bologna process received a new impetus in connection with the opening of a permanent Bureau of the Central Asian Higher Education Area. The CAHE Bureau will become a key institution that will contribute to the fulfillment of the key obligations of the Bologna Process in the territory of the Central Asian countries.
The priority direction of the Center’s work is to conduct fundamental and applied scientific research with subsequent testing and implementation of the results in the practice of higher education.
As part of the activities of the Center, projects are being implemented aimed at developing higher education in the regions – the projects “Mamandygym – Bolashagym” and “Center for Academic Excellence”.
Also, one of the key issues of the Center is the development of academic and managerial personnel of universities by organizing innovative training events to promote the parameters of the Bologna process, conducting courses for teaching staff and university staff to improve methodological and managerial competencies.
