The University of Central Asia (UCA) has opened campuses at high altitude sites in Naryn, Kyrgyz Republic (2016) and Khorog, the Gorno Badakhshan Autonomous Region (GBAO) Tajikistan (2017), and the Tekeli campus in Kazakhstan is currently in the planning phase. UCA’s campus in Tekeli, Kazakhstan is located in the Almaty region, 40 km from the regional capital Taldykorgan. To prepare the campus site for construction, UCA has undertaken extensive grading works. About 1.6 km of retaining and decorative walling have been constructed to date. Detailed design works are complete for Phase I of the Tekeli campus. Works will be tendered to local and regional contractors for pre-construction works. UCA then expects to proceed with site preparation for campus construction.
