Medical Universities in Kazakhstan : Fees Criteria
Just as not all MBBS medical colleges in India have the same fee structure, the same applies to Kazakhstan too. However, there are some obvious factors which determine and help us understand the varying pattern of fees in different medical colleges in Kazakhstan. Some of the factors are as mentioned below :
- Location of university
- Establishment year of university
- Number of foreign students enrolled in university
- Number of years since English medium course started
- Standard of hostel & facilities for foreign students
- Level of expertise of medical faculty teaching in English medium
- Number of hospitals associated with university for clinical classes
- Additional facility of MCI training & preparation
- Availability of guest lecturers from India
- Use of modern & digital technology in teaching
- Opportunity to participate in exchange programs with other countries
These above factors are not the only ones that are taken into consideration while deciding fees. There are some top notch universities in Kazakhstan, that have very good infrastructure and facilities, but offer MBBS course in low fees as a step to attract more international students and stay in competition with other universities that are well established since decades.
