we are pleased to announce the 11th All-Kazakhstan International Education Fair to be held on February 2 in Almaty, on February 4 in Astana, on February 6 in Atyrau and on February 8 in Aktau.
Eighty eight institutions from nineteen countries participated in the AKIEF-2013 and more than 4500 visitors attended our fairs in four cities of Kazakhstan.
Speedy economic and social development of Kazakhstan has resulted in an acute need for personnel with advanced western education. This is an important contributing factor to the popularization of overseas education, particularly in the English-speaking countries.
An average annual GDP growth of over 5% over last five or six years significantly raised creditworthiness and financial capacity of the population allowing parents to educate their children in commercial universities and colleges. As prices for higher education in Kazakhstan rapidly approach Western levels many parents begin to look overseas at educational destinations for their children.
This Fair will provide an excellent opportunity for all participants to tap into Kazakhstan's student market and gain access to a large number of potential applicants.
We are looking forward to welcoming you in Kazakhstan!
With best regards,

I have participated in the AKIEF annually since 2006, in Almaty, Astana and Atyrau. Globus’s fairs are the only ones I attend in Kazakhstan, and among the best I attend anywhere. The circuit lets me meet with many students appropriate to our programmes, and many of these come with their parents, allowing us to cover a full range of questions about undergraduate studies with us. Globus counsellors circulate during the fairs, introducing potential students and taking note of students for follow up. This is an excellent circuit, and a great source for us of academically well-prepared.

“Kaplan has attended AKIEF from the very beginning and we have been delighted with the results so far. From humble beginnings, AKIEF has massively and become the largest international education event in the region - this is in no small part thanks to the excellent organization of the event by Globus Education. The event gives institutions an excellent opportunity to meet highly motivated students in the main
cities of Kazakhstan.”

"The Globus Education Fairs are always extremely well
organised and well attended. The quality and range of student enquiries is very good and covers foundation, undergraduate and graduate degree programmes, with many students also interested in English language provision. UCL will attend AKIEF for the 7th year running in 2012, and expect it to be another very effective and successful event for us."
