With the increase in number of foreign students, especially the students from India, the issue of their safe accommodation with necessary facilities, even the question of arrangement for canteens with Indian cuisine became very engaging. As most of the medical institutions in Kazakhstan & CIS are government owned establishments; they could not manage the required services directly. The spaces in hostels were limited and could not fulfil the demand. Even the embassy of India in Kazakhstan showed concern for the said issue concern and used to warn the students about it, who sought the admission in Kazakhstan universities, in the information material on the website, about the hostel and accommodation problems with most of the medical institutions in Kazakhstan.
“TECAS International” has always been stressing on the accommodation of students in student hostels than in the private apartments, especially for the initial years of study and stay, keeping in view, the safety, security and offer of necessary facilities and services under one roof. Moreover parents feel comfortable and stress free when their children are provided proper and safe accommodation, especially for girls
With this goal, “TECAS International” – was the first ever body to invest in establishing an “ International Students Hostel” in Semey city , for foreign students studying in ‘Semey Medical University’, which is equipped with all basic facilities like canteen, grocery shop, salon, laundry, reading rooms, etc. Hostel is guarded by the professional security guards and kept under CCTV surveillance for the safety of the students. Presently around 700 foreign students are lodged in the hostel. After this successful project in Semey, hostels for foreign students are being founded in other cities like Almaty, Kokshetau, etc.
