 Partnership Access - Kazakhstan: Redefining traditional higher education partnerships

Although the movement of programs across borders is well-established, it is the new types of providers, partnerships, awards and delivery modes that are challenging national and international policies, and regulatory frameworks. This Partnership Access explores the phenomenon of unique cross-border partnerships between universities in different countries, which go beyond the traditional higher education collaborations. The report examines the motivations for cross-border partnerships, the risks involved, and some of the challenges facing these types of higher education partnerships today. A case study looking at collaborations in Kazakhstan as a disruptive model for other higher education partnerships is also presented.

Higher education reform is a priority for Kazakhstan, and although the government and universities continue to use many strategies to increase the sector’s capacity and quality, it is the country’s unique approach towards transnational education and partnerships, which categorise it as a forward-thinking, experimental participant in cross-border partnerships. This report profiles Kazakhstan amid its efforts to enter the ranks of the global educational process, and examines Nazarbayev University and how it is working towards its goal of becoming a world-class institution. Opportunities provided by cross-border cooperation and some of the important considerations in managing such partnerships are highlighted in this special report.

The government and universities in Kazakhstan have and will continue to employ a myriad of strategies to increase the capacity and quality of higher education, but a unique approach on transnational education and partnerships is what categorises Kazakhstan as a forward-thinking, experimental participant in cross-border partnerships.
