Kazakhstan

‌The University of Glasgow relationship with Kazakhstan is a small, but rich one, and we have received a number of excellent students in recent years, including Bolashak sponsored scholars. When asked what they have enjoyed most when in Glasgow, outside their studies, our Kazakh students fell most in love with our shopping and nightlife.

Considered a pioneer in the modern teaching of the USSR in Europe, the University is now home to one of the UK's leading centres for Russian & East European Studies and you may see some of our Glaswegian students on exchange with our partner KIMEP in Almaty.

Representatives

Students who choose to be counselled by an agency should expect the following standards of service:

  • Representatives will support students throughout the application process, providing advice and assistance in the preparation/submission of documents. It is, however, the applicant who must remain ultimately responsible for their account and the management of communications.
  • Representatives will have full access to student data contained within the application form and may manage a student application by discussing all aspects of the application with the University of Glasgow.
  • Representatives should be honest and accurate in communicating information about the University to the student and vice versa. At no time should representatives disseminate false or misleading information to the student or to the University.
  • Representatives will conduct themselves with fairness and integrity at all times and are subject to a rigorous selection and ongoing training process by the University of Glasgow.
  • Representatives are paid by the University for their services and will not pass on charges to prospective students.
