History of University

The Salymbekov University institution is a modern educational institution focused on introducing the educational system in the Kyrgyz Republic according to the standards of leading European and Asian educational institutions, paying special attention not only to the application of new teaching methods in their educational processes, but also to the formation of a universal platform that will contribute to the formation of a quality human resource.

Our strategy considers training in the medical field of citizens:

Kyrgyzstan, Countries of near abroad, Countries of far abroad

The Salymbekov University Institution, founded in 2019, is a direct continuation of previously launched educational projects of the Askar Salymbekov Foundation, from 2012, which identified the most important areas for stimulating the development of human resources, education, science and the formation of a new generation of enlightened youth. The Fund has implemented many major projects related to the education of schoolchildren and students, with the publication of books, with the holding of seminars, round tables, forums and other platforms for various companies, organizations and educational institutions, as well as events with the participation of international lecturers. All these projects allowed to educate and enlighten more than 25 thousand people.

So in 2014, the Foundation launched a successful educational project for young people - the Public School “Young Leaders of Kyrgyzstan”, which had a huge positive effect on the new generation. Its unique, unparalleled, comprehensive training courses and motivational studies gave students and young people the opportunity to master the so-called “Soft skills”, new knowledge and skills for personal growth and the formation of leadership qualities. Despite the fact that this school was conceived as a platform for training only 100 people, its work on this did not stop. Numerous positive reviews and requests became the reason for the continuation of this initiative, and subsequent enrollments to this school began. To date, about 1100 students and youth representatives of Kyrgyzstan have become graduates of 11 streams of the public school “Young Leaders of Kyrgyzstan”.

Successful experience with a public school for students and youth, as well as feedback and appeals from the population, prompted the launch of similar educational projects for other age groups. So, in 2016, the public school “Young Leaders of Kyrgyzstan”, adapted for them, was launched for high school students of secondary schools, in which about 800 high school students completed their education. Since 2017, an educational project was launched under the name of the Public School “Future Leaders of Kyrgyzstan” for students in middle and lower grades, the total number of graduates of this school is about 450 people. Children were not left without attention, especially for them, in 2018, an educational project for preschool children “Smartik” was launched.

The important step in our development was 2017, when all of the above projects were combined into one project, namely, the Salymbekov Business School, whose activities were focused on such 5 areas as the Leadership School (covering educational projects for all ages groups), “School of Business and Management”, “STEM School”, “Language School” and “Schools of Intensive Development”. At the same time, special attention was paid to the promotion and popularization of the English language in the Kyrgyz Republic, where through the implementation of key projects and initiatives the process of developing a multilingual education system was launched.

Positive feedback and thanks from the capital's schoolchildren and students, one-time educational activities in the regional centers caused a wave of requests from residents of the regions of the country who asked to open similar schools with them. On the basis of this, the scaling process of the Salymbekov Business School based on the principles of social entrepreneurship was launched, i.e., an educational project with a socio-economic orientation was implemented. Branches of the Business School were opened in the cities of Jalal-Abad, Osh, Batken, Karakol, Talas Naryn, Balykchy and in the villages of At-Bashy and Novo-Pokrovka. These branches, like the head school in Bishkek, are focused on the upbringing and formation of a new generation of educated, independent and responsible youth and future leaders. As part of these public schools, additional modern education is provided, which is not included in the curriculum of general educational and higher educational institutions of the country.

Thanks to the successful experience and practice in implementing educational programs and projects, and also because of the urgent need to introduce modern methods and programs for the training of highly qualified and sought-after personnel, it was decided to establish a new educational institution “Salymbekov University” institution, whose priority objectives are five important directions, including such areas as: Medical education,IT sphere, Vocational education, Economics and Law, and also Agriculture.

One of the first areas of our University is the Faculty of Medicine, where the training of highly qualified medical personnel in demand in our country and abroad will be carried out according to international standards. The use of effective teaching methods and modern educational programs ensures the high competitive ability of our graduates both in the domestic and foreign labor market, and also allows them to successfully implement his work in the international arena. Our University prepares medical personnel according to international standards with the conduct of the learning process in English.
