IUCA is a unique university which has the certain democratic principles. They unite students and staff in one big family. It’s  great because people become  more initiative and friendlier. And if a student has a problem or disagreement, he can come to  office and tell about his problem. It will be solved quickly  because the staff listens to students.

I like IUCA because here work only the best teachers who are highly qualified. Also it has good library where you can find    everything you need. And the most important thing is that there is no corruption here. I enjoy studying here. It is such a great  opportunity to get good education and meet new people. Besides, it is very good idea that such university was built here in Tokmok.

Every family has its traditions. Once we entered the big IUCA family, we totally got into its busy life. Here one can survive any time together, for example, such as your 18th anniversary. By the way, celebrating a birthday in our dorm starts at midnight. All students residing in the dorm participate in congratulating, singing "happy birthday" songs, give gifts, and saying exclusive congratulations. Student life is really interesting!

In my personal opinion, there are created the most favorable conditions not only for getting a high-quality education, but also for all-round development and self-perfection of students in IUCA. I would highlight three things that encourage that: commitment to the academic integrity, teaching approach, and multi-nationality of students.

Academic integrity became a sui generis moral law for students in IUCA, who are really keen on learning things. It leads students by the road of being honest first of all to themselves and to people, so that students could know their own abilities. And it concerns not only the education process, but also the future life of a student in case he or she faces such forms of injustice as corruption, bribery, string-pulling, etc. Academic integrity is an immunity of IUCA student.

Another remarkable side of IUCA is the teaching approach backed with high-level professionalism. The individual approach to each student, based on mutual respect, encourages their aspiration for knowledge. A student immerses in learning process by his own interest and will. And this is the merit of the teaching approach. We examine, explore, exchange.

But most of all in my university I love that we are all united by our differences. There are already Kyrgyz, Uzbek, Kazakh, Chinese, Uyghur, Russian, Dungan, Ukrainian, Korean and even Ethiop ethnicities in our friendly and as yet small family. Tolerance and  respect towards other nationalities is educated in students. And this is very important in our days. They enrich their minds and broaden their outlooks, which is necessary for the future leaders of our society.

As for me personally, IUCA opens up a lot of possibilities, for what I am grateful very much. I am given a chance to make my dream come true: I am going to study in the US. I think every university should be famed for its achievements and achievements of its graduates. A lot of things depend on each student. This is why it is an effort of each of us to make it so that every alumnus of our university could proudly say that he or she studied at the International University of Central Asia.

For me IUCA is not just a place where I get a good education, but also a place where I found a lot of friends. Perhaps, IUCA is one of the few universities that has its own campus. This campus allows students to communicate with each other round the clock. In my opinion, student cohesion is a significant factor in learning.

I am lucky to be a student of this school, because we have an enormous selection of educational materials and high technology equipment. In other words, at IUCA a student has everything to feel comfortable.

There are many reasons why I like to study at IUCA. But I can highlight the three main points among them:

1) The conditions for learning;

2) Internal policy of the university;

3) Distance from the bustling city.

I find the conditions, provided by the university for teaching and learning, the most appropriate for me and my classmates. The campus has everything you need beginning from Internet access to modern library. Thus, I have no need to even leave the campus. Also, during the lectures and seminars we are able to use not only traditional teaching materials, but also the most advanced media applications.

The policy of the university is aimed at making maximum use of the university resources by students who could openly express their viewpoints and their vision of any issue. The democratic character and liberal views of the professors to students encourage the latter to think more freely and not to remain within some common cliche and templates.

Some people may find it strange that the student can enjoy the remoteness of the institution from the capital. However, relying on my own experience, I can say that living and studying in a distance from the city one can concentrate on his or her studies - the main purpose of a student - and not be distracted by some unnecessary entertainments.

I believe that studying at IUCA is an investment that we do today to get big dividends tomorrow.
