About the Scholarship:

Kazakhstan has a literacy rate of 97 percent, which is greater than in developing countries like India, Peru, and Morocco. Preschool education, general secondary education, out-of-school training and education, family education, secondary vocational training, secondary technical education, higher education, post-higher education, and professional competence development and in-service training are all part of the country’s educational system. Various institutions provide the necessary general education for young people aged 7 to 16. The largest number of students attended 8,027 elementary and secondary schools prior to independence. Because of the overall population decline, the number of schools and pupils declined marginally in 2000. Grades 1 through 4 are in primary school; grades 5 through 9 are in secondary school; and grades 10 and 11 are in high school. It is normal practice for all three levels to be administered by the same person and to be housed in the same facility. Primary schools are generally found in rural areas with low population density.

Kazakhstan’s universities are primarily responsible for tertiary or higher education. Universities in the nation follow the Russian model of tertiary education, focusing solely on teaching rather than research (as universities do in other parts of the world). Students who want to apply for university admission must have a high school diploma or its recognized equivalent from one of the country’s higher education institutions. To join a university, all secondary school graduates must pass a new exam, the Edinoe Nacional’noe Testirovanie (Unified National Testing Exam), and get the associated certificate, the Certificat o Rezul’tatah EHT (replacing the Complex Testing Exam). Some schools, as well as specialized departments, may demand a separate entry examination. Students who are accepted to a university at any level must apply under a certain major, and the university sets the curriculum for each major (in accordance with State law). For example, economics majors will take the same courses in the same order, as opposed to English majors, who will follow a different path. Some courses are necessary for a range of majors, and transferring majors is a possibility, however classes normally do not transfer to the new major, and the student must reenter as a first-year student. Kazakhstan’s higher education institutions, like other modern colleges, provide a variety of degree options in hundreds of different majors. Kazakhstan currently has four degrees of tertiary education: Bachelor’s degree is a level of education that is equivalent to a high school diploma. In Kazakhstan, a bachelor’s degree takes four years or eight semesters for full-time students. These foundational higher education degrees offer students with the necessary foundations for their chosen subject of study.

‘Specialist’ is a term used to describe someone who holds a degree in a The Specialist degree or diploma, which usually lasts five years, provides specialized training that is a little more intensive than a regular Bachelor’s degree. A master’s degree is a postgraduate qualification. In Kazakhstan, scientific-pedagogical education can lead to a Master’s degree, which takes an additional two years to complete following a Bachelor’s or Specialist’s degree.

Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.). Doctoral degrees, which lead to the Doctor of Science (PhD) degree, can take anywhere from two to five years to complete following a Master’s degree. Full-time postgraduate studies (known as Aspirantura in Kazakhstan) leading to the qualification of Candidate of Sciences (Kandidat Nauk) usually span three years and include the submission of a thesis. A PhD is awarded after two to three years of further study beyond a Master’s Degree, while a Doctor of Sciences (Doktor Nauk) is awarded after the Kandidat Nauk and completion of a thesis based on original research under the new system of higher education. In Kazakhstan, universities are normally led by a rector, who is selected by the President of the country and has significant influence over the institution, approving all decisions including curriculum, personnel, and admittance. Kazakhstan’s universities are far more centralized than their Western equivalents due to this system of command.

Al-Farabi Kazakh National University in Almaty and L. N. Gumilyov Eurasian National University in Astana are Kazakhstan’s top two universities as of this writing. Karaganda State University has a good reputation as well. Kazakhstan’s tertiary educational scene also includes private universities. These schools, which are primarily non-profit institutions, are subject to the same curriculum restrictions as public schools but are allowed to determine their own fees and salaries. Public universities must follow the same rules as other government-owned institutions when it comes to tuition and wages, as well as administrative organization, contracting and subcontracting, and property ownership. If a state-owned university’s enrolment hits 86,000 students, or 34 percent, it is eligible for funding. A small number of universities, including as art academies and international universities, are funded through a budget line in the Republic budget.
