“A best kept secret”

Kazakhstan is a dynamic and exciting country. Its fascinating geography and history make it a great place to live, study, work and visit.

DMU Kazakhstan's campus is located in the heart of Almaty. After lectures, you can go for a hike in the beautiful natural areas surrounding Almaty.

The city’s natural beauty alone is a good reason to work in Almaty. Almaty is situated in the south-eastern part of Kazakhstan. With the backdrop of the gorgeous Zailiysky Alatau mountains, it’s the perfect place for those looking for a picturesque city to live in.

With a relatively low cost of living, Almaty is also very affordable. Almaty has a great choice of shops, restaurants, bars, and a lively mix of music, film, sport, comedy and culture as well as lots of green spaces within and surrounding the boundaries. It’s ‘the perfect size’ – big and historic enough to impress, yet compact, friendly and safe enough to call home.
