Students Development Center

University life is a movement forward, an opportunity to discover your talents and study abroad; it is time for new victories and achievements, for bold breakthroughs and ideas.

KAFU as the university of international partnership, forming the leaders of the 21st century for the benefit of sovereign Kazakhstan, provides a comprehensive development of professional and creative potential of its students.

The Center for Students Development is a cohesive team that lives by the interests of today’s youth and pursues an active policy in all areas of the student life.

The development of students’ activity at the university and the need to solve the goals and objectives of the KAFU youth policy resulted in the creation of the Students Development Center (SDC) in 2010. From the moment of the Students Development Center creation the two main directions in which the center is actively developing were set. They are creative and professional development. Creative development is aimed at ensuring realization of the State youth policy and improving artistic amateur creativity among students. Professional development is directed on the professional communication and obtaining practical knowledge.

It is worth noting that over the past 4 years a number of changes occurred in the structure of the Centre. Analyzing the dynamics of recruiting to the Students Development Center, it is noticeable that the number of the Center’s activists has significantly increased. n the 2011-2012 academic year there were 45 activists, in 2012-2013 – 41 activist, in 2013-2014 – 90 students, and in 2014-2015 there are 101 of them. The vast majority is represented by the 1st and 2nd-year students. It should be also noted that the SDC has had not only a quantitative increase, but also a qualitative growth in the number of events, in their quality and professional content.

A special place in the Center activities belongs to the monthly student newspaper “Free Students”, produced annually since 2007. The editors constantly improve the visual design of the newspaper, the style of is content and presentation, while maintaining the quality of the material and our corporate style. The staff of the editorial board is constantly updated with the number of talented young students of KAFU. University professors actively support the newspaper and publish in it. At this stage, we are actively working on the creation of the newspaper web-site.

The creative volunteering group traditionally organizes different events, among them there is the contest of poems, compositions and reports in Kazakh, Russian and English devoted to the Day of the Republic, the Independence Day and many others. The new events are the Students Ball and the Mr. KAFU contest. These activities have received a good response and are planned to be held annually. The participants of the creative volunteering group took active part in the celebration of the national holiday “Nauryz” and performed a concert at the stage provided by the city administration.

For the first time our students participated in the regional “Students’ Spring 2014” contest with 30-minute performance in Semey. The choir of our students took the first place in the “Academic vocal” category in the city “Student Spring 2014” contest.

In the city contest “Student Spring – 2015” the creative team from KAFU «Breezy Beat» won the nomination “Original genre.” Our students adequately presented the university, as well as pleased the audience of thousands people with the performance and proved once again – there is a talented youth in KAFU.

Besides, there is the Club for Humorous and Ingenious People called KVN. Its University Russian and Kazakh leagues are actively functioning. This academic year the Club participants reached the final of the KVN City League. In September 2014 the team was going to participate at the regional level and get a ticket to participate in the Republic League of KVN. KVN is a competition in your own wit and our students cope with it with great pleasure. Our students actively participate in the city league final and win honorable prizes. In recent years, our teams have achieved a lot: they are the champions of the Premier League, they have won a lot of cups, prizes, awards, etc.

The Business Club is the unity of business and higher education. The club participants apply business concepts and an entrepreneurial approach to the implementation of socio-economic projects, which allow the population to improve the level and quality of life. Business Club members develop various projects, business plans, implement socially significant ideas and take part in various contests, forums, conferences in both local and international levels.

The KAFU debate movement was revived. The KAFU debate club educates the participants’ patriotism and helps in forming their personality. In 2014 in honor of the KAFU 20th anniversary, the Republic Debate Tournament for the KAFU President’s Cup was organized for the first time. Its participants were debaters from Astana, Pavlodar, Semey, Kokshetau and Ust-Kamenogorsk.

In 2014 the KAFU debaters also revived the city Debate League. Besides, they held training for those wishing to participate in debates and they also have taken patronage over the teams of KAFU College, College of Economics and Finance, Moscow Economics and Statistics Institute and East Kazakhstan State University.

Within the framework of legal assistance the “Femida” (“Themis”) KAFU Legal Clinic works. Creating the KAFU Legal Club is an important step to raise the KAFU students’ legal awareness, to consolidate law students’ theoretical knowledge in conducting free legal consultations on the KAFU basis for the students, university staff and the city’s population. In the 2013-2014 academic year, the Legal Clinic activists held classes on legal literacy for employees of voluntary national teams and students of Ust-Kamenogorsk police assisting groups at the Department of Internal Affairs.

The number of trainings was organized for students, for example, the basics of communication with customers, seminars on advanced study of the changes and additions to the Kazakhstani regulatory legal acts, etc.

In the 2013-2014 academic year the University volunteers’ movement reached a new level and took the patronage over the “Hospice” old people’s home and the children’s rehabilitation center for children with disabilities. Under this patronage the volunteers monthly visit these centers and provide all possible help, organize entertaining evenings and events for children and the elderly

The KAFU volunteers’ activity has been repeatedly covered by regional television and“Oskemen” and “Rudnyi Altai” newspapers. To the present moment the agreement on joint cooperation was signed with the volunteers of Nazarbayev Intellectual School.

The university has successfully implemented a proactive project on the creation of a dance club studying both modern, for example “hip hop”, and traditional genres, e.g. “oriental dance”. This project resulted in the invitation and participation of the University dance group in the city flash-mob dedicated to the Day of the first President of the Republic of Kazakhstan and participation in the city “Student Spring 2014” contest.

Moreover, within the Students Development Center the Psychology Club functions. It has deal with organization of social surveys for students and teachers, organizes psychological seminars and trainings, psychological consultation for teachers and students.

Based on the Student Center the Language Club welcomes everyone. The main objectives are the following:

  • Developing public speaking skills of the club members;
  • Practicing and mastering the educational material;
  • Discussing global political, youth, social and economic problems in foreign and national languages;
  • Watching movies in a foreign language.

Tourism is not only a window to the world, a mean for knowledge and communication, but the whole life. Today, the KAFU Tourist Club «Liberty» is more than 10 routes of active recreation for everyone who wants to discover their Terra Incognita. We hope that the long experience of bright, saturated and interesting hikes led to the right choice of areas and time travel. We really want the members of our routes to experience camp life and the romance of an unforgettable journey.

Also, there is the Vocal Studio in the SDC. The studio accustoms the students to the concert activity and motivates students’ participation in competitions and festivals of student creativity.

The university consistently hold the activities to promote and clarify the Message of Kazakhstan President, the state youth policy, as well as the formation of patriotism, citizenship, tolerance, providing legal literacy of students with an invitation to members of the city public organizations, media, youth associations, department of internal policy of East Kazakhstan region Akimat, and public associations like “ASK”, “Phoenix”, “Zhas Otan” and others.

We are always open for cooperation and are ready for constructive dialogue and welcome new members of our friendly team.

Our main goal is to make the life of our students not only useful, colorful, saturated and memorable, but also to promote the education of an active generation of leaders in the 21st century for the benefit of our sovereign Kazakhstan!
