- General points
The volume of academic load of students is measured in credits earned during the school year for each academic discipline. Over the entire period of training at the institute, the student must master the required number of credits.
The curriculum of each undergraduate specialty contains three blocks of disciplines: general education, basic, profiling. The curriculum contains a list of disciplines of a compulsory component or an optional component with an indication of the number of credits. Each discipline is studied, as a rule, within one semester, but the curriculum is based on the principle of the sequence of studying the disciplines and strict accounting of prerequisites when studying each discipline.
- The academic year consists of academic periods (semesters), which include intermediate knowledge control, final knowledge control (exam session), final certification (for the graduation course), practice and holidays. The duration of a semester of theoretical training ranges from 8 to 15 weeks, with the exception of the summer semester.
- Summer extra semester runs for up to 6 weeks. As a rule, disciplines for which students have not mastered the curriculum, as well as other disciplines, including for students of other specialties and from other universities, are usually taken out for the summer additional semester.
Learning in the summer extra semester is carried out only on a fee basis.
Summer extra semester provides students with the opportunity to eliminate the unsatisfactory grade in the disciplines, eliminate the difference in the curriculum, make adjustments to their individual plan due to timely study of prerequisites, increase their GPA.
A student who completed the course program in full, but did not score the minimum conversion point, in order to increase his GPA, is given the opportunity to re-examine certain disciplines on a paid basis in the summer supplementary semester (except for the discipline “Modern History of Kazakhstan”, on which the state exam is taken) and re-pass exams on them.
3.4. The duration and timing of each school year is indicated in the Academic calendar, which is published and communicated to students and teachers no later than three months before the beginning of the school year. In order to ensure that the students are widely informed on the content of elective disciplines (modules) offered by the faculty, a catalog of disciplines (modules) is published for each block of the curriculum. The catalog is developed by the departments and brought to the attention of students.
4.Choice of the Educational Slope by students
— A student independently creates an individual learning path based on the curriculum in the specialty and the Catalog of disciplines (modules). The student chooses the required number of required and elective disciplines (modules), which are reflected in the IEP. After that, in accordance with the curriculum of the specialty and the individual curricula of students, a working curriculum for the specialty for the academic year.
A student is responsible for compiling the IEP and completing the course of study in accordance with the requirements of the working curriculum of the specialty.
- Individual training planning is carried out for the academic year under the guidance of advisors. The list of advisors is approved by the rector of RII.
- Maximum number of credits included in the student’s IEP must match the number of credits established by the curriculum for the current semester and year of study, respectively. Students who are trained on a contractual basis can form their IEP with a smaller number of disciplines than provided by the curriculum, and the duration of training increases.
- Information on the subjects, including their brief description, is contained in the catalog of disciplines (modules), which is brought to the attention of students by graduating departments and advisors.
- Educational-methodical complexes for the disciplines according to the working curricula are placed in the “Portal” RII system no later than 10 working days before the beginning of the semester in which these disciplines (modules) are studies.
- The choice of subjects, (modules) should be made with the obligatory consideration of the sequence of studying the disciplines. A student cannot be registered for a discipline unless he has mastered the prerequisites for the discipline in the previous semester.
The head of the graduating department and advisers are responsible for timely informing students with academic debts about the possibilities of eliminating them in subsequent periods of theoretical training in order to observe the principle of prerequisite.
— Formed individual curriculum (IEP) in 3 copies is signed by students and provided to the adviser for approval.
The adviser, in the absence of comments, signs the IEP, coordinates it with the IAARO. After approval by the dean of the faculty, one copy remains with the student, the second copy is transmitted by the adviser to the IAARO for use in the attestation process, and the third is kept by the advisor and serves as the basis for monitoring the students’ implementation of the curriculum. The deadline for submitting an IEP at IAARO is the 1st week of the semester. The student’s IEP is registered under his personal identification number ID.
- On the basis of the curriculum and the individual curricula of students, the departments develop working curricula approved by the Institute’s Academic Council.
- The student has the right to change the IEP within the framework of the working curriculum of the specialty prior to the start of theoretical training during the registration period..
- Students enrolled in foreign HEIs, on the basis of international educational exchange programs, or RII partner programs within academic mobility, may be credited with credits earned by them during their studies abroad in disciplines that correspond to the approved specialty curriculum. To transfer credits, the graduating department, on the basis of the disciplines’ syllabuses, establishes the equivalence of the content of courses studied in a foreign university, to the working curriculum of the specialty.
- Registration for studies attending
- 5.1. Training sessions for each discipline (module) and the formation of a schedule are carried out on the basis of registration of students for the discipline (module). The student must register for a certain number of credits provided for in the specialty curriculum.5.2. Registration of a student for the study of academic disciplines (modules) of the upcoming academic year is carried out in the “Portal” system (http://rii.kz) RII in the online mode with methodological and advisory assistance to graduating departments after a detailed discussion of their individual learning paths with adviser, who gives explanations on the choice of disciplines in accordance with the approved curriculum and catalog of elective disciplines.5.3. For new entrants to the Institute during the orientation period, a general familiarity with the credit system of education, the procedure of registration for disciplines is carried out.During the orientation week, meetings are held with representatives of the administration, deans of faculties, heads of departments, advisors. Each student is assigned an ID number (login), password.- Registration received in the RII is made before the beginning of the first semester after passing the orientation period. For this category of students, the basis for access to registration is the order of enrollment in the number of students of the institute and payment for the semester (if the training is carried out on a fee basis).The rest of the students are registered for the disciplines of the next academic year and the re-passing of disciplines during the registration period specified in the Academic calendar.
- The basis for access to registration is:
• passing all the prerequisites required for the study of a particular discipline;
• lack of financial arrears in tuition fees;
• trainees undergoing a comprehensive medical examination
• Registration for the additional summer semester is carried out at the end of the spring semester, except for students in the final year of study.
• Registration for the re-learning of the discipline is carried out within the established deadlines for general registration, but provides for advance payment for training, since re-learning of the discipline is carried out only on a fee basis for all specialties and forms of training.
• Academic flows of students are formed on the principle of a sufficient number of students enrolled in this discipline.
• Academic flows of students in elective disciplines of specialties with a small contingent of students are formed on the principle of recording all students in one discipline. The total number of students in this case should be at least 10-12 people.
If the number of students is less than the minimum established, the discipline does not open. Students who register for this discipline, warn about it and within 3 days after the end of registration they are asked to repeat the choice of discipline.
In the case of registration for a given academic discipline of students in quantities exceeding the maximum set number, an additional academic flow is formed in the given discipline.
• The RII uses distance learning technologies using electronic teaching materials. Remote study of individual disciplines of the curriculum is allowed in cases provided for in the regulatory documents of MES RK.
- Student’s Individual Work
- The basis for access to registration is:
- 6.1 In terms of the credit technology of students, for the full development of the educational program, a large amount of independent work is performed, which is divided into two parts: independent work, which is performed under the guidance of a teacher (SIWL), and that part, which is performed completely independently (SIW).6.2 SIWL is an out-of-class form of student work, which is performed by him in contact with the teacher on a separate schedule during the office hours of the teacher, approved by the dean of the faculty. This type of work includes advice on the most complex issues of the curriculum, homework assignments, course projects (works), and control of semester work, reports and other types of independent work assignments.
- All types of independent work are necessarily described in the syllabus and SG with indication of specific tasks, evaluation criteria and schedule of assignments.

- Assessment of students’ knowledge
8.1 Learning achievements of students for all types of learning tasks are evaluated on a point-rating alphabetic system of knowledge assessment.
8.2 When conducting a final control, a positive score is recorded in the exam sheet for the academic discipline and the student’s electronic record book. After completing the exam in each discipline, the student is given a final grade, which serves as an assessment of his academic achievements.
A positive mark (A, A- “excellent”, B + B, B-, C + “good”, C, C-, D +, D- “satisfactory”) is recorded in the examination sheet for the academic discipline and grade book of the student with indication of credits. The score for FX, F “unsatisfactory” is recorded only in the examination sheet.
8.3 The final assessment of the discipline includes the assessment of the rating of admission and final control. The assessment of the current performance monitoring (tolerance rating) is at least 60% of the final assessment of knowledge in the discipline, and the exam assessment is at least 30% of the final assessment of knowledge in the discipline.
- A positive final grade serves as the basis for supplementing a used loan with a set amount of loans for the relevant discipline and is entered in the student transcript.
• If a student receives a “unsatisfactory” grade for the final control (exam), the final grade for the discipline is not calculated.
• In the period of intermediate certification of the student, it is allowed to retake the exam in the academic discipline (module) no more than two times.
• In the case of a third time receiving an assessment of FX or F, corresponding to the equivalent of “unsatisfactory”, the student is expelled from the university regardless of the number of received assessments “unsatisfactory” and loses the opportunity to enroll in this discipline again.
8.7 Retake a positive assessment of the final control in order to increase it in the same period of interim certification is not allowed.
8.8 Students take all exams in strict accordance with the individual curriculum and approved educational programs uniform for all forms of education.
8.9 Students can also take exams in the disciplines of additional types of studies, the results of which are recorded in the examination sheet, gradebook and transcript.
8.10 To retake the test from “unsatisfactory” to a positive one, a student in the next academic period or summer semester again attends all types of studies provided for by the educational program in this discipline, receives admission and passes the final control.
In this case, the student again goes through the procedure of registering for an academic discipline.
8.11 If a student who has completed the program of discipline in full, did not appear for the exam, in the examination sheet, in front of his name, the mark “did not appear” is made. If there is a valid reason, an individual schedule for passing the exam is established by the order of the dean of the faculty In the absence of a valid reason, non-attendance at the exam is equivalent to an “unsatisfactory” grade, which is being retaken in a later period.
8.12 A student who disagrees with the result of the final control, makes an appeal no later than the next working day after the exam.
8.13 At the end of the school year, on the basis of the results of the examination sessions, students are transferred from course to course.

8.15 A student who completed the course program in full, but did not score the minimum conversion point, in order to improve his average grade point (GPA), is given the opportunity to re-examine individual disciplines on a paid basis in the summer semester (except for the discipline “Modern History of Kazakhstan”, on which the state exam is taken) and re-pass exams on them.
8.16 With a positive result of re-passing the exam, the final grade is re-calculated, which is recorded in the examination record, grade book and transcript.
When calculating the average grade point, the latest marks for the academic discipline are taken into account.
8.17 Students – holders of educational grants who are left for a second course of study, are deprived of an educational grant and continue their further education only on a fee basis.
Students – holders of educational grants who have scored a translated GPA score and transferred to the next course with academic debts, are not deprived of an educational grant. In this case, they must re-examine the disciplines for which they have debts, on a fee basis and pass an exam on them. The cost of one loan in the context of specialties is determined by the Financial Service.
