Binura Baibatyrova Bolashak Scholar, University of Durham, LLM, 2004 - 2005.

My experience with the University of Durham in the United Kingdom was the most rewarding among many other universities. I am very thankful to the Kazakh Government for awarding me a Bolashak Scholarship to do my LLM in International Trade and Commercial Law in Durham in 2004-2005.

 For those who have never visited Durham , I must say that it is the prettiest town of England and inhabits the most attractive and gentle people in the country. It is a very little town but attracts the world’s greatest intellectuals from around the world. It is cosmopolitan in its academic circle, but very British in its local people, which allowed me gaining the grips of both the very British and foreign cultures. So, do not miss your chances to visit it some day and you will surely fall in love.

 I graduated from the University of Durham with distinction in January 2006. Having an LLM from a prestigious UK university helped me to become an associate at one of the world’s leading international law firms – Baker &McKenzie – a firm I have always dreamed to be a part of.  

 Wishing you good luck in your endeavours,

 Binura Baibatyrova

Gulzira Amanturlina, London School of Economics, MSc in Management of NGOs, 2002-2003.

While I was studying at the Kazakh Management Academy (now Kazakh University of Economics named after Ryskulov) I worked for Children"s Foundation as a volunteer. I considered this would be the most fascinating career for me. Deciding to work at NGO, my very concern was lack of knowledge. There were quite few resources available on NGO Management basics and best practice. That means I needed to go for further studies. Department of Social Policy at the London School of Economics was the only option I thought of. view history >>
