This unique program envisaged continuity of education, regular up-dating and renewal of general education and professional training. It should be emphasized that currently the literacy rate in Uzbekistan is almost 100 percent.

Nowadays, about 300,000 students study at 65 universities and institutes of the republic by 850 majors and professions.

Some foreign universities such as the International Westminster University (2002), Singapore Institute of Management Development (2007), Moscow State University (2006), Russian Economic Academy named after G. Plekhanov (1995) have opened their affiliates in Tashkent. Very soon a Branch of Turin Polytechnical University will be opened in Tashkent which is the first foreign educational Institution for training machinery specialists in Central Asia.
