TORONTO, Oct, 19, 2016 /CNW/ – Canada’s Seneca College congratulates the University of Central Asia (UCA) on the inauguration of its first undergraduate campus in Naryn, Kyrgyz Republic.
“We are delighted to offer our congratulations on this important occasion to the University of Central Asia. We are proud that Seneca was selected, among other institutions around the world, to help develop curriculum for the university’s preparatory year. We look forward to our continued work together to provide world class education and foster a global perspective in students.” Seneca President David Agnew said.
The Kyrgyz Prime Minister Sooronbay Jeenbekov and His Highness the Aga Khan inaugurated the Naryn campus on Wednesday, October 19.
