Welcome to the Academy: Open Day

Last Saturday, an Open Day was held at the Academy of public administration under the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan in Nur-Sultan.

At the traditional event for incoming students, the guests were able to get full information about the master’s and doctoral programs for 2020, new admission rules and advantages of studying in the Academy, as well as take part in seminars (as part of preparatory courses for admission to the Academy) on such relevant topics as: “How to write an essay on the subject/research plan?” and “How to avoid plagiarism?”.

85 people took part in the Open Day in Nur-Sultan in offline format. It is notably that two-hour session was held in the form of an online live stream in Academy’s social networks  on Instagram and YouTube, so that participants from different regions of Kazakhstan had the opportunity not only to watch the online sessions, but also to immediately get feedback. So, there were 225 participants in the online live stream on the social network Instagram, and 220 on the YouTube channel.

The convenience of an online session also consisted the fact that all interested civil servants who could not attend the event had the opportunity to watch LIVE later, in a saved recording on the same platforms. It should be noted that links to entries will continue to be distributed as a mailing list to all applicants in the current year.
