Induction Week 2014 – Unforgettable Moments!


Each year at Westminster International University in Tashkent (WIUT) is memorable with two grandiose week-long events held at the start and the end of an academic year. If “Culture Week”, held a month before the final exams, marks the end of an academic year, “Induction Week” marks its start, creating a powerful prelude before the actual studies begin. The event deserves a special attention not only for being the first big event of a new academic year, but most importantly for being the first step into the university life for the freshmen students.

Here is how WIUT student Gulnoza Davletmendova described her previous year’s Induction Week experience:

“Crossing the threshold of our university, I felt a surge of power that a person usually feels when he is close to something warm like the sun after a long cold winter. WIUT surrounded us with a friendly atmosphere and organized a special Induction Week, so that students would have the opportunity to meet each other, to feel the spirit of unity and teamwork. It was a precious opportunity to meet new friends and to make the process of adaptation easier and funnier. This way we got used to each other and the university even before our first classroom hours commenced”.

Held between 22nd and 26th of September 2014, the grandiose event will be remembered by many bright and funny moments. Enjoy the delicious pieces of the Induction Week cake on our facebook page here: Induction Week-2014 Photo Report.

Nowadays, all over Europe some 800 million Europeans are members of 47 different nationalities of the Member States, and language learning at all ages in and out of school is one of the main features of the European culture.

The first part of the day was devoted to the peculiarities of teaching the culture in which the teaching of language and the culture are represented as a single unit. This main idea was reflected in the seminar organized for about 50 teachers of English, French and German. In the second part, celebrating the European Union and European countries, embassies and cultural centres presented an interactive cultural exhibition. Visitors were able not only to observe the expositions, but also took part in a quiz dedicated to Europe, winning special prizes and improving their knowledge about the culture of European countries.

An entertaining conclusion of the “Day of European Languages” was marked by a spectacular concert organized by the young talents. Performers of the show represented the European culture and languages in the form of songs, poems and dances.
