Nazarbayev University, Kazakhstan

Nazarbayev University is an autonomous research university in Astana, the capital of Kazakhstan. Founded in 2010, it is an English-medium institution with an international faculty and staff. 

Astana is the capital city of Kazakhstan, administered separately from the region of Akmola as a city with special status. The planned city of Astana became the capital city of Kazakhstan in 1997, and since then has developed economically into one of the most modernized cities in Central Asia. Its skyline grows more fantastical by the year as landmark buildings, many of them by leading international architects, sprout along the wide boulevards in a variety of Asian, Western, Soviet andfuturistic styles. Though characterised by its bitter, windy winters and hot, dusty summers, Astana is a pleasant city with a young, forward-looking vibe.
