Uzbek­istan’s cap­i­tal has hosted a pre­sen­ta­tion of the doc­u­men­tary “West­min­ster Univer­sity, Tashkent. The way to as­cen­dance”, ded­i­cated to the ac­tiv­i­ties of the first branch of an in­ter­na­tional higher ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tion in Uzbek­istan.

The film di­rec­tor De­nis Kodza­yev and scriptwriter Boris Babayev cov­ered not only the ed­u­ca­tional process, but also the par­tic­i­pa­tion of stu­dents in the cul­tural and ed­u­ca­tional pro­gram of the univer­sity.

“West­min­ster In­ter­na­tional Univer­sity in Tashkent be­gan its his­tory 16 years ago as a pi­o­neer in shap­ing the model of in­ter­na­tional ed­u­ca­tion in Uzbek­istan,” says the WIUT rec­tor Komiljon Ka­ri­mov. “It uses a com­bi­na­tion of cen­turies-old tra­di­tions of the Uzbek peo­ple with the best British prac­tice in the field of ed­u­ca­tion. In 2002, we had about 100 stu­dents and only 20 teach­ers, and now their num­ber has ex­ceeded, re­spec­tively, 3.5 thou­sand and 200. Dur­ing this past pe­riod, more than two thou­sand grad­u­ates left the univer­sity walls.”

As the Min­is­ter of Higher and Sec­ondary Spe­cial Ed­u­ca­tion of Uzbek­istan, Inomjon Ma­ji­dov, notes in the film, the univer­sity is a model in the coun­try in terms of train­ing high-level spe­cial­ists.

The English ver­sion of the film has also been pre­pared, which will pre­miere at West­min­ster Univer­sity in Lon­don.
