TSUULL welcomes some of the brightest minds from across the globe every year. In this section, we look at aspects of student life at TSUULL and our admission processes, which are particularly relevant to those currently studying and living outside the republic.
1. Apply for Uzbekistan student visa
If you are not Uzbek national, you will need a Student Visa to attend a full time course in TSUULL. You must apply for a Student Visa in your home country before travelling to Uzbekistan and allow sufficient time for the visa to be processed. Visit visa and immigration for more information.
Undergraduate students are guaranteed a place in the dormitory. Contact TSUULL International Cooperation Office to find further information on graduate student properties and how to apply for accommodation in the dormitory.
Orientation events for international students take place at the same time as for home students at the Freshmen school fair where you can talk to advisors from central University services and a number of visa presentations will also be held at the start of term. You will also receive induction information from your college and department about academic and social life at TSUULL.
4. Finding your way to TSUULL from the Tashkent airport
The Finding your way to TSUULL guide provides information about getting to the university from airport and the Railway station. Inform the university staff of your arrival time, especially if you are arriving late at night.
5. Be alert to scams and potential fraud - do not make any payments
You should be especially careful in the first few weeks of term about any scams by email, phone or social media that ask you for any payments or personal information. Fraudsters are known to take advantage of new students especially at the start of term and particularly if English is not your first language.
6. Adjusting to life in Uzbekistan
Coming to study in a different country is a major change to your life. Remember that this is a huge transition and it may take time to adjust to life in a different culture. Take opportunities to familiarise yourself with the culture here (reading papers, watching TV, talking to others). Spending time with someone from your same culture can also help you feel less isolated.
7. Registering with the police
Students from some countries may have to have their passport scanned or register with the police after they arrive. Visit visa and immigration for more details.
