One of the major problems that students in India face is of choosing a college for a prestigious degree like Engineering or medicals. The entrance exam for these courses – NEET and JEE are high valued in education and the qualification of these allows the students to pursue their dream. NEET is the requirement for pursuing medical studies in India. It is regarded as one of the toughest examinations in our country which requires rigorous study and hard work. It is very difficult to choose a particular college for pursuing a medical degree in India. The level of competition does not really allow everyone to pursue their careers in the medical field. NEET is one of the most prestigious entrance exams in the country, yet a small portion of students actually get through to good medical colleges. Even the experts have pointed out the lack of good facilities and accommodation in medical colleges, which does not encourage a good level of training for the students. However, due to heavy competition and the inferior quality of lesser-known Indian medical institutes, the students are tempted to look for options outside India. the exotic locations, the cuisine, and the employment opportunities obviously are the reasons why students actually prefer pursuing MBBS abroad.
Kazakhstan is one of the most preferred locations among Indian students. While the general public is still unaware of the potentialities of pursuing MBBS in Kazakhstan, but the Indian and Asian students who have already pursued MBBS in the country, have good words to say about the education system. First of all, admission to medical colleges in Kazakhstan is not that rigid as compared to India. On the other hand, the country also opens doors for students and parents looking for education at relatively cheaper rates. The infrastructural facilities provided by universities are quite better for better grooming for students in order to blend well and work in a different country. Kazakhstan has MCI recognized and WDOMS enlisted medical universities, and the medical degree is recognized by WHO, UNESCO, which allows the students to practice the medical profession in India as well as different hospitals all around the world. The minimum qualification is having cleared NEET and having a mere 50 percent in 12th standard in science stream with physics chemistry and biology. For the reservation category, the qualification marks are a mere 40 percent.
The colleges and universities are situated in big cities, which are not only good for cultural exposure but are also tourist hubs. In that case, the students will be encountering a different yet welcoming culture to blend in. The cities, their cuisines, and different tourist places will also help students to relax and ease their burden.
The most important part of a study in Kazakhstan would be the highly economic education system, the availability of scholarships, and the help that the colleges and universities provide in procuring visas for admissions. The fees in medical colleges are affordable, compared to the reputation of the institutes as well as the city the colleges are based in. The idea and motivation are to provide affordable education to all national and international students. Indian students go to Kazakhstan in good numbers, and even with limited seats, Indian students are always preferred for admission. The universities have a prolonged education period from 5 to 6 years which includes full education, training as well as work experience. The students are generally employed in the hospitals as trainees and they get to work with the finest doctors in the world. The students are also offered employment in the hospitals of the institutes with good pay and manageable work hours. The training in these colleges is top class without any doubt, and the students are prepared to handle tough situations both mentally and physically.
With the coronavirus pandemic still happening, the need for good and qualified doctors is on the rise, and even in the future, the medical profession would remain the noblest of all. The Indian students and parents should be able to realize their dreams of MBBS education, and Kazakhstan presents the perfect opportunity. With the degree valid in almost all major nations, the students would not have any problem in pursuing their profession anywhere in the world. Many doctors from these universities are employed in Indian medical colleges and hospitals and are well known in their profession.
The country and its campuses are all welcoming for the Indian students with good infrastructural services, hostels, proper medical care, mental health care and many of these universities provide Indian food as well. The students are allowed to celebrate their culture and one can always see Indian festivities on these campuses. These universities also provide progress reports to the parents of the students, and also have meetings with the guardians from time to time. The hospitals are often engaged in charitable services and these students also get the opportunities to do humanitarian works. Every college and university provides mental health care with good therapists and medication if required.
