High School Fast track program for students in grades 11-12

Dear Applicant,

We would like to inform you that KIMEP University is planning to implement a fast-track program for 11-12 grade school students in the Spring Semester 2022.

Fast-track program is intended for those students who decided to master university-level foundation educational program in a shorter period of time.

Duration of university study is reduced solely due to previously taken general education disciplines and the number of hours taken.

It is planned to transfer the following general education disciplines and grades: History of Kazakhstan, Kazakh Language, Academic English, Physical Education, and other academic courses offered by colleges. At this time the list of courses is being discussed with college and department deans.

High proficiency of English language is required to start mastering academic courses.

Below you will find a table showing the passing scores corresponding to the academic levels of English at KIMEP, which will guarantee your admission to the academic courses through the fast-track program of study.
