It is important to say that the National Ranking of HEIs, conducted by the IAAR, takes into consideration the diversity of educational organizations of the republic and their characteristics. Applications for participation in the IAAR National Ranking were submitted by 75 HEIs of the republic, however, 17 educational organizations were excluded due to incorrect filing. The General Ranking of Kazakhstan – 2018 featured 58 HEIs which included 6 national, 21 state, 7 joint-stock companies and 24 private educational organizations.

- Ranking of Kazakh HEIs by Bachelor's programs (by study areas).
