In recent times, it has been observed that Kazakhstan has become one of the most popular destinations for MBBS study abroad, especially among prospective Pakistani medical students, with colleges and universities located in the country’s major cities and adequate facilities available to students.
However, one needs to know everything about pursuing a career abroad as there are various misconceptions about the country and the adjustments that a Pakistani medical student might have to make. Firstly, Kazakhstan is a safe country for foreign students, especially Pakistani students, to travel and stay in. As the medical profession is considered a noble one, and both parents and students are looking for various opportunities with good universities in Pakistan and outside. The most important thing is the availability of such investment. In Pakistan, candidates might be able to land themselves at the best college, but this is not the case for all. Other students who do not get good results are sometimes left in the middle and do not have much to do to continue in the profession.
However, the best medical universities in Kazakhstan are quite lenient on this issue. There are some advantages of studying MBBS in Kazakhstan. The most important one is that the cities provide an opportunity to get acquainted with the profession. As Kazakh cities are tourist hubs as well as the most sought-after destination for foreign students, Pakistani students are exposed to different cultures and people, which allows them to homogenize well. Students planning to study MBBS in Kazakhstan must be at least 17 years old. Students who have completed physics, chemistry, and biology in the curriculum in Class 10+2 and have at least 50 percent marks in Class 12 are eligible to study medicine.
