Curatorial hours are held weekly in all groups according to the curatorial hours map plan drawn up by the curator of the group at the beginning of each semester. Each curator also conducts unscheduled work with students, namely conversations about offenses, compliance with internal regulations, the dangers of smoking, alcoholism and drug addiction, AIDS prevention, the benefits of a healthy lifestyle, and the prevention of religious extremism.
MF groups actively work with students’ parents through social networks, parents actively receive summaries of learning outcomes according to the Univer 2.0 program from their children’s curators and are fully informed about the life of both the institute and the university as a whole. Individual preventive work is carried out with students who systematically skip classes, as well as their parents, through telephone communication, personal conversations, invitations to meetings of departments and to the dean’s office, where such cases are considered in detail and disciplinary measures are applied to such students. Once a month, the MF holds meetings of the MF Board of Curators, at which the Deputy Dean for Educational Work and senior curators of the TOMiS and MMiN departments analyze curatorial hours and report on the educational work carried out in MF groups. The MF pays close attention to students living in the dormitories of the university.
MF teaching staff are on duty in dormitories, investigate the living conditions of students, find out the problems and difficulties that accompany nonresident students during their studies and living away from their parents. MF students are active members of the Professional Union of Students of the Zhas Orda Card, which organizes and conducts various events both within the MF and at the University scale. At the beginning of the academic year, MF activists conducted a quest marathon “Let’s establish communication” for first-year students, during which students from all over the university learned about the structure of the map, the location of buildings, libraries, canteens, dormitories, etc. To identify talented students among first-year students, a talent contest is held in the Zhastar Alem Students’ Palace, following which they identify winners in various categories. Great attention is paid to cultural leisure and aesthetic education of students.
