     to the Graduate School of Education (GSE) at Nazarbayev University! 
The GSE was established in 2012 and received his first master's and doctoral students in August 2013.  It is dedicated to becoming a world-class center for teaching and research on education, with a focus on educational reform in Kazakhstan and Central Asia, while retaining a broad international approach. We seek to promote and assist in the implementation of cutting-edge research on educational challenges and issues from preschool through university levels. 

A M.Sc. Educational Leadership with specializations in School Leadership (2-year), Higher Education (2 year), Inclusive Education (2 year) is currently offered in GSE. Within each of these specializations the following topics will be covered: instruction and pedagogy, curriculum design and development, evaluation and assessment, governance, and leadership. A M.A. Multilingual Education is also offered in GSE at the moment. This 2-year full-time program covers theories, policies and practices of multilingual education, and is closely linked to the trilingual education strategy that is being implemented in Kazakhstan. Additionally, GSE offers a Ph.D. in Education. This full-time, intensive 3-year program is designed for individuals who are committed to taking a leadership role in educational reform and management in Kazakhstan. 

Working with our partner institutions, the University of Cambridge and the University of Pennsylvania, the GSE will form the core of a group of academics and practitioners dedicated to education understood holistically, both as a lifelong journey and as a discipline which seeks to wed research and practice.
The GSE seeks to:
