All final control tests are prepared by professors from the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) and evaluated independently. At the end of the year, the final control tests will be conducted under the supervision of the British Council. This ensures transparency and quality of education in the teaching process.

The duration of study in each of these joint educational programs is 4 years, and students study at the Foundation level in the first academic year. In the 2-3-4 academic years of study, students study in UoL programs under the academic guidance of LSE. Students who successfully complete the 1st stage (Foundation) of the 2021/2022 academic year will be able to continue their studies from the second stage in the following areas:

Importantly, with a special diploma awarded at the end of Level 1 (Foundation), students can study at the undergraduate level in the UK and other European universities in addition to the ISEF joint program areas. Foundation curricula and science programs were developed by TSUE and approved by the LSE for use in the educational process.
Here are the thoughts of Professor Gavin Kretzschmar, Executive Director of the ISEF Joint Education Program:
“UoL programs under the academic guidance of a highly rated LSE have the potential and power to transform higher education into a completely whole another level. We can assure parents with confidence that in partnership with UoL and LSE, Uzbek students will have the opportunity to study undergraduate programs in their home country of Uzbekistan.”, said Professor Kretzschmar. He also stated, “I am confident that the opportunities and achievements of ISEF students will be limitless, as ISEF always focuses on teaching quality education and excellence. At this point, we once again congratulate the ISEF team on the launch of this program, which is truly a great achievement of TSUE – ISEF team! I am pleased to welcome the proposal of UoL and ISEF to guide and support ISEF faculty and students in the successful implementation of the UoL-LSE program.”
