The University, having the necessary regulatory, organizational, material, technical, information resources and technologies for the development and use of the human capital of the older generation, has started the development of the project “Asyl Kazyna University”.
The main idea of this project is to meet the needs of older generation in education.

On June 7, 8, 9 in 2022, the implementation of these programs began.
