On 26 February 2018, al-Farabi Kazakh National University and FBK signed the Agreement on Cooperation for the purpose of further perspective relations between two countries in educational and scientific fields, taking into account close international relations between the Republic of Kazakhstan and Italy.

As of today al-Farabi Kazakh National University successfully cooperates with more than 300 largest universities of the world; the university is a member of International, European and Euroasian Associations of universities, the World Universities Consortium, etc.

The international academic mobility became the important direction of higher education institution`s development in recent years. Annually over two thousand Bachelor, Master and PhD students of al-Farabi KazNU have internships in foreign high-ranking universities. The university`s teachers and administration staff constantly improve their skills by participation in scientific international conferences and business meetings. You can find our partners in CIS countries, Europe, North and South America, the Middle East and Asia. Al-Farabi Kazakh National University increases Kazakhstan`s positive image abroad by its activity.

In the framework of internship program for Master students, I visited FBK in the city of Trento from 27 February until 9 March 2018. During Internship, I got set of skills for academic essay writing. It helped me to take participate in the 27th International Scientific Conference on Economic and Social Development in Rome, which was hold on 1-2 March 2018. In collaboration with the head of Department of Religious and Cultural studies (Faculty of Philosophy and Political science, al-Farabi Kazakh National University) professor Ainura Kurmanaliyeva we presented our paper: «The role and place of Islam in the structure of the modern Kazakhstan society». The most interesting thing of internship were the lectures of center’s professors. It changed my opinion in some aspects of my scientific research.

I am grateful to my university for this great opportunity in receiving such valuable experience. In addition, I would like to thank my tutors in FBK, especially Sara Hejazi, Paola Costa, Isabella Masè, Valeria Fabretti and Marco Ventura of FBK Center For Religious Sciences.
