In 2018, Shahid Matoo, an aspiring MBBS student from Srinagar landed in Kyrgyzstan, where he is, currently, about to complete his degree.
During his four-year-long stay in the Central Asian country, Matoo has been happy and satisfied with the learning environment he found himself in, the amenable faculty of the college and fee structure.
“Kyrgyzstan is a feasible destination for Kashmiri students as the weather is cold like Kashmir and the fee is affordable. The labs and clinical practice is also great while comparing with the colleges of other countries,” says Matoo.
Over the years, Kyrgyzstan has emerged as a top option for aspiring Kashmiri MBBS students, other places of draw being Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan.
A Srinagar-based educational consultant Jahangir Zargar says, nowadays, students prefer Kazakhstan because of its institutions’ low-budget fees.
