Nazim is a student of the American University of Central Asia, Department of Anthropology. Here is his story:
“AUCA has been giving the best education for students who really want to study and get the best education. The Anthropology Department is the best choice for students who are interested in history and archeological and historical facts. AUCA is a great place to both study and practice. Because practice is an integral and very important part of learning in all sectors, it facilitates the acquisition of skills. All conditions which are given to the students of AUCA are to make the studies more interesting and easy.
AUCA also gives financial aid to its students, which is a Kiva loan. I would like to take the opportunity and apply for it. The loan will enable me to cover my tuition fees.”
