Westminster: A Path to Ascendance
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.
