Education abroad experiences are often life-changing. We hope that you have had an exceptional experience abroad and that you will capitalize on this by continuing to interact in global activities at Narxoz and in your communities. Additionally, you will need to complete some last steps before your experience can be considered complete.
- Academic credit transfer process
Provide a transcript and any other requested materials (e.g. syllabus) to your international coordinator in the International Development and Partnership Office for the subsequent transfer of courses you completed abroad. Foundation subjects that have been taught during your time abroad are not counted for transfer credit.
- Financial aid records process
If you paid for your program abroad through the Kazakhstan government grant, email receipts of payment for flights, accommodation, visa and insurance (e.g. boarding pass, dormitory paid invoice, receipts, etc.) to your Narxoz international coordinator.
- Share your time abroad on Narxoz social media pages and with your family, friends and classmates
Share your experience during your time abroad so others can learn about different cultures and ways of life around the world, and so they can learn about the amazing transformation you went through. We also believe that your feedback, photos and videos are the best motivation that will allow other students to take their first steps to go abroad.
- Be a part of the Narxoz global community

- Be kind to yourself and keep growing
Students who return from experiences abroad are forever changed because you gained new independence, interacted with people from around the world, and you saw how things are different outside Kazakhstan. When you come home, it is common to experience reverse culture shock since you got used to a new way of living abroad and you may see the world differently now. Keep in mind that this is completely normal and something everyone goes through. Take time to reflect on your feelings and give yourself time to get used to being back home and the new you that you have become. Writing, exercise, meditation and spiritual activities often help. Meeting up with other study abroad alumni and international students is also a great way to find people who understand what you are going through.
