This is an important contributing factor to the popularization of overseas education, particularly in the English-speaking countries.Market information
Kazakhstan has taken part in Lisbon conference and signed a Convention of Council of Europe - UNESCO on recognition of qualifications, regarding the higher education. The fair will be an ideal opportunity and a strong bridge for Kazakh students, parents, school representatives and media partners to meet and benefit at the same time. An average annual GDP growth of over 5% over last five or six years significantly raised creditworthiness and financial capacity of the population allowing parents to educate their children in commercial universities and colleges. As prices for higher education in Kazakhstan rapidly approach Western levels many parents begin to look overseas at educational destinations for their children.
Education in Kazakhstan is universal and mandatory through the secondary level and the adult literacy rate is 99.5 percent. The Ministry of Education’s Bolashak scholarship grants some 3,000 young students a year the opportunity to travel to 32 countries to attend 630 universities.Fair Outline
