Bachelor's degree programs of Sorbonne-Kazakhstan Institute are based on Bachelor's programs existing at KazNPU Abay, to which are added French reinforcement courses (3 to 5 hours/week).
It is a 4-year program (8 semesters), in accordance with Kazakh norms.
Speciality courses of the 3 first semesters are taught only in Kazakh or Russian (the student can choose). 4 courses are taught in French by French teachers on semesters 4 and 6.
Students who pass the 4-year studies at ISK are awarded a Kazakh Bachelor's degree diploma and a certificate of achievement from Sorbonne Paris Cité University that allows them to enter the double degree Master's programs of ISK more easily, even a Master's program in a French university.
Students who wish to have a French Bachelor's degree together with the Kazakh diploma can spend their two last years at a partner university in France, if they get a sufficient level of French and good academic results.
