Why aren’t Universities in Kazakhstan Built Outside of Major Urban Areas?
Receiving a higher education in Kazakhstan means moving to a big city. For some, this move presents new opportunities; however, for others this creates inevitable challenges. Students have traditionally identified transportation, accommodation and living costs as their most significant challenges. Kazakhstan has never built universities outside major metropolitan areas, contrary to common practice in the West, where universities frequently become cores of small towns. Vlast.kz looks into why universities in Kazakhstan are not leaving major cities and whether such a move can happen in the foreseeable future.

A Journalist’s Perspective: A Day on the University of Central Asia Construction Site
The University of Central Asia’s School of Professional and Continuing Education (UCA SPCE) graduation ceremony – by the way, its 10th – similar to previous years was celebrated in a festive and colourful fashion.  It would not be an exaggeration to say that the 200 graduates receiving their certificates from the UCA leadership (and it should be added that certificates were conferred not only to graduates, who came from GBAO, but also from the neighbouring provinces of Afghanistan) were glowing with happiness. Details of the ceremony is available in the UCA SPCE press release and, in the story prepared by our correspondent. As for me – I would like to relate my trip, together with a group of fellow journalists to the campus construction site in Khorog.
