Completion of Students' Wellbeing Research Project

The "Interdisciplinary Intercultural Research on Wellbeing in Schools for Health", or Wellbeing Project for short, concluded today after 26 months of collaborative work between Cambridge University Faculty of Education and Nazarbayev University Graduate School of Education. In a Thank You letter to the team, PI Dr Ros McLellan mentioned both the hard and often difficult work, as well as the fantastic data that was gathered.

Professor Carole Faucher from NU added: "This project will serve as a solid basis for initiating new ways to support the wellbeing of students of Kazakhstan and to increase the awareness on the need for more research in this area."
