DUSHANBE, April 19, 2016, Asia-Plus — Following the success of last year’s inaugural programme, the University of Central Asia (UCA) launched its 2016 admissions campaign for Grade 10 students in Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan to attend UCA’s innovative Summer Camp.

According to UCA, the three-week overnight camp will run from July 20 through August 9, 2016 at the Royal Beach Resort in Kyrgyzstan’s Lake Issyk Kul region.

Now in its second year, the Summer Camp is a residential enrichment programme offering talented Central Asian students the opportunity to improve their English and maths skills and receive mentorship and support in the university application process.  Seventy-six secondary school students, from an application pool of 850 , were invited to be part of the camp last year.

The Summer Camp is one component of UCA’s broader efforts to prepare Central Asian students for an international standard of university education.  Summer Camp curriculum is designed by international experts and adapted to fit the context and needs of Central Asian students.  Native speakers with a background in teaching English as a Second Language (ESL) provide English instruction, and an instructor with extensive experience teaching Central Asian students teaches mathematics.
