This article is written to determine the peculiarities of formation of foreign language professional-communicative competencies of the non-linguistic university students in online education. The authors scrutinize the key aspects of professional-communicative competencies in foreign language based on the earliest investigations provided by foreign and Kazakhstani scholars and on the results of the questionnaire. Moreover, the authors emphasized the significance of online education in the formation of professional-communicative competencies in foreign languages on the basis of the monitor and report, made by National Center for Higher Education Development. However, authors claim that the challenges persist in some Kazakhstani universities, including non-linguistic ones. Despite the universities have utilized the platform to offer massive open online courses, they still face issues related to methodological and technological aspects of online education implementation. Thus, the authors demonstrate the overview on the procedure of integration of online lessons, especially, for the development of foreign language professsional-communicative competencies in agrarian universities. In this regard, the research was carried out among 200 students and teaching staff of the S. Seifullin Kazakh Agrotechnical Research University to identify the current condition of foreign language professional-communicative competencies formation in online education.
