“When I saw the Naryn campus and learned about the undergraduate curriculum, I fell in love. If the University of Central Asia had been there when I was growing up, I would have certainly applied for admission. I am thankful that my hometown was chosen for such an amazing project,” said Ruslan Akun, a renowned Kyrgyz filmmaker.

In Ruslan’s recently produced TV series, Akyrka Sabak, meaning Final Lesson in Kyrgyz, the University of Central Asia (UCA)’s School of Arts and Sciences and the School of Professional and Continuing Education are featured in the story.
