A Development University


The University of Central Asia (UCA) was founded in 2000 as a private, not for profit, secular university through an International Treaty signed by the Presidents of Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan, and His Highness the Aga Khan; ratified by their respective parliaments, and registered with the United Nations.

Alumni Speak

"The depth of UCA's academic programme has equipped me with skills necessary to succeed at the graduate school, whereas heavy focus on Central Asia and its development focus has brought forth the clarity to my professional plans and aspirations. Above all, UCA has given me life-long friends and wonderful mentors I cherish greatly."

Alumni Speak

"UCA gives you the right space for not only academic but personal growth as well. The curriculum at UCA has helped me comprehend the concepts of big data, informatics, earth sciences and related that every graduate student must be able to. Apart from academics, what I miss the most about UCA is its residential life. The facilities cannot be compared to any dormitory around the world."

Alumni Speak

“UCA taught us how to be compassionate and responsible, not only to yourself and your families, but towards your community and the world. My faculty, student life team and classmates have left a huge impact on my life, and these five years have certainly shifted my perspective of the future.”
