The collapse of the Soviet Union led to the emergence of a new type of higher education institutions. The first non-state educational institutions appeared. For the first time in Kazakhstan, the policy generally accepted around the world has been applied to modern private universities. South Kazakhstan pedagogical University was founded as one of the first in 1992. The school was founded as the Khoja Ahmed Yassavi Institute of Oriental Studies. Kazakhstan was gradually developing, and the country was growing in a timely manner. Education in the country has become a key factor in the development of intellectual potential and the economy.
Improvement did not pass the University, it grew and in 2000 changed its status to the one that is now. From year to year, more and more new teachers appeared at the University, and the number of students in training increased. The founder of the University can be considered Yunusov Bakhtiyar Saidovich, who is both a Professor and an Arabist scholar. The First award our higher education institution received in 2007, it was the order of Socrates. The Socrates international Committee, which is located in England, recognized the merits of our Creator with the "Name in Science" award.
The Board of the University is inherited. Since 2012, the President of SKPU is Yunusov Madiyar Bakhtiyarovich. Specialist in Economics and law.
