For 11 years, the University of Arts has signed memoranda of cooperation in the field of musical art with 11 foreign educational institutions, which allowed holding symposiums and scientific conferences, master classes of foreign professors-musicians with the consent of both sides, to carry out creative and scientific contacts. The University is an authoritative model of the system of continuing education in its field: school - college - bachelor's degree – master's degree - doctoral degree, specialists in various fields of art are trained on this basis.

An important task has been set for the new university in the field of art -to provide the musical infrastructure of Astana and the northern regions with highly professional specialists. Since the formation of the young capital, there has been a need for artists and musicians, performing groups that will ensure its cultural life, and in the future will form its spiritual basis. Opening a music academy was the only way to solve these problems. The Kazakh National Music Academy was headed by People's Artist of the Republic of Kazakhstan, Professor Musakhodzhayeva Ayman Kozhabekovna. Ayman Kozhabekovna is a well-known Kazakhstani violinist in the world music space. Thanks to the successful work of the rector, on October 12, 2009, by the decree of the Government of the Republic of Kazakhstan, the Kazakh National Music Academy received a new status and the name “Kazakh National University of Arts”.

In 2010, the university opened new specialties of art: cultural studies, art history, choreography, painting, sculpture, directing (feature and documentary films), cinematography, scenography (fashion design, make-up), librarianship. Currently, the university has 6 faculties: music; theater, cinema and TV; traditional musical art; choreography; fine arts; social sciences and humanities. Students became laureates of 500 international competitions in the field of musical art and 400 republican competitions. KazNUI graduates are provided with 100% labor in their specialties. One of the university's structures is the Research Institute of Art History. In the future, it is planned to open a UNESCO chair and a folklore cabinet at the Research Institute.
