Uzbek language to be taught at the University of Cambridge


The University of Cambridge is planning to introduce intensive Uzbek Language courses within its programs at the Faculty of Asia and Middle East Studies. This was discussed during the recent visit of the delegation of Tashkent State Institute of Oriental Studies (TSIOS) headed by its rector Prof. A.Mannanov.

The delegation of Uzbekistan visited the United Kingdom by the invitation of Prof S.Saxena, Chairman of Cambridge Central Asia Forum (CCAF). Prof. Sh.Yovkochev, head of TSIOS’s World Politics Department and Mr. B.Ochilov, head of Cooperation Group with the University of Cambridge also arrived as members of the delegation.

The TSIOS has been cooperating with the CCAF since 2010-2011 academic year within the British Council’s project “International Strategic Partnerships in Research and Education INSPIRE”. This partnership includes a three year project named “Past and Present of the Great Silk Road”, covering the historical, geopolitical and geo-economical aspects of the Great Silk Road. Within the project Prof. S.Saxena visited Tashkent in February 2011.

During the reciprocal trip representatives of TSIOS visited leading colleges of the University of Cambridge, including Jesus, King’s, St. Andrews, Churchill and Pembroke. They also held meetings with the heads and professors of the faculties and research centres of the University of Cambridge, particularly, Faculty of Development Studies, Faculty of Asian and Middle East Studies, Centre for Indian and Iranian Studies, Centre for Shakhname Studies.

As it was discussed during the visit, professors of TSIOS are expected to be involved in teaching Uzbek language at Cambridge as native speakers and professionals.

Besides, two universities have also agreed to develop exchange programs. Particularly, Uzbek researchers will take part in the international conference in Cambridge later in September.

This visit became a significant step in strengthening the cooperation between TSIOS and CCAF, opening a new opportunities for the future scientific, educational and research projects.
