An International Office (IO) has been established at UCA with the aim of providing leadership in the pursuit of academic and operational excellence through international cooperation, and strategic partnerships. The Office aims to coordinate and facilitate all relevant cooperation and strategic opportunities to maintain academic excellence in line with UCA’s mission of developing mountain societies.


His Highness the Aga Khan, UCA Chancellor.
In the words of UCA’s Chancellor, His Highness the Aga Khan, “What this University is all about is not only the power of education, but also the power of international cooperation. It is a power that can change peoples’ lives. It is important to know that what we are doing here will be a valuable example of international cooperation for the future not only here in the region, but also for people far beyond the region.” (19 October 2016, UCA Naryn campus inauguration)

Through its areas of operations, the Office helps structure, negotiate, and facilitate academic and strategic partnerships, promoting global citizenship and intercultural dialogue, examples of which include the recent MoU signing with the University of Cambridge and Cambridge Trust in February 2020. It also provides opportunities for Graduate, Doctoral, and Postdoctoral studies through the Central Asian Faculty Development Programme (CAFDP). Some recent activities of the Office include joining the United Nations Academic Impact and an MoU signing with Simon Fraser University.
