Saturday marks the 85th anniversary of the foundation of the Uzbek National University (the former Central Asian State University). This is the alma mater of thousands of highly qualified specialists from Central Asia and so-called third world countries.
"We have tuition in the Uzbek and Russian languages," said the rector's office of the university. The university maintains contacts with 27 higher educational establishments in Europe, the USA, Japan and China. Its mathematical school is famous all over the world. The university's mathematicians participate in the program of launching a satellite to the Mars.
In 2003 the university's scientists won grants on 98 research subjects. They carry out research work on the basis of foreign grants to the sum of 425,000 US dollars.
