The festive nature of the event was emphasized by the beautiful performance of a string quartet.

At the end, there was a team-building event. Journalists conducted several interviews for television and online media. There were also opportunities to take joint commemorative photos.

The IAU is the only international agricultural university in Uzbekistan. It educates the future leaders of modern agriculture and the food industry in Uzbekistan and the entire Central Asian region. The International Agricultural Academy was established in May 2022 by a decree of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan. The partner is the Royal Agricultural University in England, a well-known university operating under the patronage of the Prince of Wales – Charles. Graduates of the International University of Agriculture in Tashkent will receive not only knowledge and skills at the highest level, but also a diploma from this prestigious British university.

IAU will offer study programs in agronomy, agroeconomics, agrology, biotechnology, intelligent agriculture, animal husbandry, and food security. You can now register for an undergraduate or preparatory year which complements the knowledge required by UK universities, including improving your English proficiency. It is worth emphasizing that the  classes will be conducted in English, as most of the lecturers are foreign specialists or trained at leading foreign universities. Internships for students will also take place in leading foreign centers, including institutions and companies in the agri-food industry in Europe.
