Selection process and enrollment

Nazarbayev University expects applicants to meet the minimum admission criteria but we do not guarantee the admission to any applicant.

Applications are considered to be complete upon their online submission.  All hard copies of the required documents must be delivered to the Admissions Department by the established deadline.

Applicants are responsible for ensuring the receipt of all required documents by the Admissions Department. Application documents are not the subject to be returned.

The NU Admissions Committees make decisions on applicants based on thorough evaluation of submitted applications, required documents, and test scores.

The applicants with the highest ranking scores are offered admission. Once a decision is made by the Admissions Committee, the Admissions Department will notify the applicants via email. The applicants can check a status of their applications in their NU personal accounts.

The applicants offered admission are required to formally accept or decline the University offer to study by sending the completed Enrollment Form. This will be available upon the acceptance of the admission offer you will need to pay an Enrollment Deposit, refunded only upon signing the Contract on Rendering Education Services with the University after matriculation.
