There are several opportunities to study at KIMEP as a non-degree student. Students may begin studies in a non-degree capacity from the time of application with or without the intent to enter an undergraduate/graduate/postgraduate program in the future, Adult Learners, Visitors of International Summer School, or exchange students, Russian or Kazakh language learners. All these groups receive a special document reflecting the results of studies in individual courses taken at KIMEP University, but no academic degree or diploma.
Non-degree (at the undergraduate and graduate course levels) is an educational option to be used by any person wishing to take courses for personal purposes without any intention of obtaining a degree. Upon completion of the selected courses, a document is issued which indicates course title(s), the number of academic credits, and the student’s final grade. The successfully completed courses may be transferred to undergraduate or graduate degree programs.
With the exception of students auditing courses through “Adult Learner” option and students in the Russian cohort of the ExMBA program, it is mandatory for all non-degree students to demonstrate their level of English proficiency.
Adult Learner is an option of non-degree study, offered to all people (21 years old and older) who are interested in auditing courses currently offered by KIMEP University. A person with Adult Learner status can only audit courses; however, no current or final course assessment or academic credits will apply to these individuals.
INTERNATIONAL SUMMER SCHOOL
Students interested in the International Summer school program will be admitted to courses for the purpose of general education, but will not be able to continue studying at KIMEP University after completion of ISS without undergoing a procedure of admission to an appropriate program (undergraduate, graduate, non-degree).
