Alumni from Kazakhstan met thanks to the Czech Republic Alumni program. On October 15, 2021, the second online alumni meetup of Kazakh alumni of Czech universities took place.
The Czech Republic Alumni programme brings together international students and alumni of Czech universities and helps to develop their relationship with the Czech Republic. We organized the October virtual meeting Alumni Meetup Kazakhstan 2021 together with the Embassy of the Czech Republic in Nur-Sultan.
As part of the Alumni Talks, the participants listened to Kazakh alumni and their experience of living and studying in the Czech Republic. They also met with other alumni as part of networking or learned during the presentation of our Study in the Czech Republic initiative about the possibilities of further studies in the Czech Republic.
The guests of Alumni Talks were:
- Aiman Imentai, a researcher at the Laboratory of Intensive Aquaculture of the University of South Bohemia in České Budějovice and an alumna of the university.
- Shukhrat Raimov, a software engineer and an alumnus of the Czech Technical University in Prague.
The event was also attended by Shynar Kaliyeva, a recent alumna of the master’s degree at the Academy of Arts, Architecture, and Design in Prague, who works as a glassmaker. During the "Counting sheep with Shynar" session, the attendees had a unique chance to learn about Shynar’s studies and her current work combining the Czech and Kazakh cultures through glassmaking. You can find out more about her studies, life, and work in the Czech Republic in an interview for the online magazine Czech Design. Shynar's current work can be seen on the ÓLŠE brand e-shop.
This year's second alumni meetup was an excellent success we owe to our attendees, partners and speakers. Thank you.
