Forms and training periods

In KSIU training of specialists in the Kazakh and Russian languages, in internal, correspondence forms of preparation and the reduced program is carried out.

Training of specialists is carried out both on the basis of the state educational grants, and on a contractual basis.

In KSIU there is a possibility of training in the distant form.

Remote learning (education on distance) is a set of the information and pedagogical technologies, purposefully organized process of the synchronous and asynchronous interactive interaction training and being trained among themselves and with training aids, invariant to their layout in space and coordinated in time.

In our higher education institution remote learning is carried out on a case technology, and operation on implementation of network technology now is carried.

The case technology includes educational and methodical materials accurately structured and as appropriate completed to a special set (“case”) which are sent (are transferred) to the trainee for independent study and the subsequent periodic request for clarification to specially trained teachers – consultants.

The network technology implies use of the Internet both for support of trainees with educational and methodical materials, and for interactive interaction between teachers and trainees.

Education in the distant form is the modern form of education allowing economically to spend time, at the same time getting a quality education. Remote learning is convenient for the persons which are working at a factory and not having possibilities of everyday presence at university, for remotely living from higher education institution and for what physical opportunities are limited, but according to the inference of the medico-social commission training in higher education institution is possible.
