Welcome to Uzbekistan!
Uzbekistan is quite the character: a land of ancient cities yet embracing the future. Here’s what I mean. The region is home to some of the oldest cities in the world, but it’s also been quick to adapt to the times. So, it has this duality of being both ancient and modern. Plus, it’s a compact country with a surprising variety of landscapes.
Now, Uzbekistan was once under the mighty Russian Empire and later broke off to become independent in 1991. The population is a colorful mix, with the Uzbeks as the majority and ethnic groups like the Karakalpaks, Tajiks, and others adding their unique touch. Today, the country still shares ties with Russia and the CIS, even though the younger generation is leaning more towards Western influences. This is evident in things like education, with an emphasis on language proficiency and tech skills.
With all the wide-open spaces here, even the crowded cities can take a deep breath. You can get a taste of city life without feeling boxed in. Uzbeks love their traditional sports and staying close to nature, appreciating the beautiful landscapes of their homeland. There are spots in Uzbekistan that still feel untouched, pristine. But watch out, they’re also home to some interesting wildlife like snow leopards and Bukhara deer.
Costs and fees
Uzbekistan is a very cheap country. Monthly costs of living for a single person are slightly below 400€. Keep in mind that, as a student, you could have access to various discounts which can include food, travel, and accommodation expenses.
When it comes to university’s fees, they are very low too since the only university that you can find on wearefreemovers, Tashkent Institute of Management and Economics, has a very low amount of semester fees for free movers.
