Research Digest is a bi-monthly publication aimed at sharing evidence-based research output generated at Westminster International University in Tashkent (WIUT) to a wider public.
Annual Research Events
It has been a busy and rewarding academic year for us at WIUT creating and sharing knowledge with you with the enthusiastic support from our staff, students and local and international partners of the university every step of the way. Here you will learn about a range of activity-events hosted and results produced at Westminster International University in Tashkent.
Strong collaboration with public and private sectors, and intentional agencies provides unique opportunities in the region for WIUT faculty to participate in research projects funded by external stakeholders, including research and education projects funded by Erasmus+.
Weekly research training sessions cover the philosophy of research, design, posing questions, quantitative and qualitative data collection and analysis methods, and drawing conclusions and publishing results, including both theoretical and practical sessions. Practical sessions are supported with research tools for quantitative and qualitative data analysis including STATA, NVivo, and other useful software for researchers such as LaTeX.
Research Assistantship Program
Since 2014, research assistants (RAs) have supported senior research faculty, contributing significantly to WIUT’s research. WIUT faculty with qualified research experience can claim to hire research assistant(s) on a project basis. Research assistants are expected to help with data mining, carrying out surveys, doing a literature review, and do other work related to a research project, including project management and other administrative work. Most research assistants continue their postgraduate studies in European and North American universities.
WIUT Visiting Fellow Program
Regularly WIUT hosts visiting academics who contribute their interests and experiences in research to the WIUT community under Visiting Researcher Fellowship program. This program targets people willing to pursue their own research in association with WIUT faculty members. Researchers normally stay from a month to a semester.
