May 21, 2013 @ 12:00 noon (CST): Kazakhstan Education Market – Free Webinar
The U.S. Commercial Service Kazakhstan and the Global Education Team, together with the Public Affairs Office of U.S. Consulate General in Almaty will host an informational webinar on opportunities in Kazakhstan’s higher education market. Why Kazakhstan? Currently, Kazakhstan sends 25,000 self-paying undergraduate and graduate-level students overseas every year. Unfortunately, only about 6% of them chose to study in the United States and we hope to help increase this number significantly. Kazakhstan is a rapidly-developing, politically-stable, oil-rich, ethnically diverse nation, that has tripled its GDP in recent years to around $13,000 per capita. Young people there actively study English – many Universities in Kazakhstan conduct all coursework in English -- and are very eager to study abroad. It’s not difficult for Kazakhstanis to get visas either. In addition, the Government of Kazakhstan recently announced plans to close many local private universities, so the number of students seeking high-quality education overseas is forecast to increase. The webinar will cover the following topics: Kazakhstan higher education market trends; the education system and typical Kazakhstani student profile; and opportunities for U.S. higher education institutions.
