Kazakhstan is an emerging destination for medical aspirants and to pursue their dream to study in Kazakhstan. Here we take a look at the country’s progress in establishing itself as a regional study hub for Central Asia, and what prospective international students need to know about universities in Kazakhstan, local life and the application process.
The largest and wealthiest of the countries nicknamed the ‘Stans’, Kazakhstan has long been an ethnically diverse country; in the 2009 census, only 63% of residents were native Kazakhs. This international element is also a key characteristic of the country’s higher education sector, in which global collaborations and exchanges are occupying an increasingly prominent role, with universities in Kazakhstan keen to welcome international students and academics from across the world. The main religion in Kazakhastan is Islam and rare animals found in the Kazakhastan are Leopard, Eagles and falcons.
