For two years now Kazakhstan has been modernising its higher education. This modernisation aims at
increasing the academic and organisational autonomy of universities and their internationalisation.
Through these activities, Kazakhstan intends to bring the quality of education at universities closer to

Technologies (ICT) is one such area.
The paper presents the results of research on the readiness and willingness of students from
Kazakhstan to study ICT in English. The research was conducted in 2016, i.e. before the reforms of
education in Kazakhstan, and was repeated in 2019, after the changes. It was carried out with the use
of a survey method developed by the Lublin University of Technology, Lublin, Poland. Comparison of
research results allowed to indicate significant changes in the attitude of ICT students towards studies
in English. Although in 2019 more than twice as many students declared good and very good
