The Eurasian University meets all the requirements necessary to become the elite university. I can positively say that no university in Kazakhstan has such training facilities as the Eurasian University, and even in the CIS countries I have rarely seen such universities. I hope and believe that L.N.Gumilyov Eurasian University, truly Eurasian in its nature and spirit, will train professionals of the highest quality.

I constantly focus attention on the Eurasian university, and I shall do it further. From you, students of the university, persistent study is required to become highly skilled experts, to work in favour of our Homeland – the Republic of Kazakhstan. Your assiduity and hard work are highly required.
President of the Republic of Kazakhstan
