National University of Uzbekistan is the oldest and largest university of Uzbekistan; it has 13 schools. The university was founded in 1918 as Turkestan People's University, with 1,200 students; in 1920 it was reorganized as Turkestan State University (Russian: Туркестанский государственный университет), and in July 1923 it was renamed the First Central Asian State University (Russian: Первый Среднеазиатский Государственный Университет), a name it retained through the end of the 1950s. In 1960 the name was changed to the V.I. Lenin Tashkent State University (Russian: Ташкентский государственный университет им. В. И. Ленина). With the independence of Uzbekistan it became the National University of Uzbekistan.
During World War II many academics were removed from cities in the western USSR to Central Asia, and Tashkent, along with Alma-Ata, was favored for its European-style infrastructure and the presence of a significant number of Russian-speakers; a group of professors from Moscow protested being transferred from Tashkent . The university consists of 12 faculties.
