“I met many excellent teachers who gave me a lot of inspiration and encouragement,” Zhenis Aliya, a Philology Faculty-student from China, said. “Also, I really enjoy the time I spend with my classmates. I think that Kazakhstani students are very active and creative, and they have many positive qualities that have influenced me a lot.”
Nicu Florin-Madalin, a first-year International Relations student from Romania, echoed Aliya’s sentiments about the quality of education at ENU “The balanced approach to different subjects requires theoretical research and practical activities for learning, understanding, and preserving the academic efforts of the students through the cooperative and aligned syllabuses of the lectures and seminars of the same subjects”.
