Uzbekistan Study Abroad Market
In this Market Report on Uzbekistan we will cover socio-economics, educational and mobility trends. With an estimated population of 33.5 million, Uzbekistan is one of the largest markets in Central Asia. Uzbekistan is also a young country with more than two-thirds of the population being of working-age (15-64).
Uzbekistan has maintained a high GDP growth, averaging 7.0 percent over the last 10 years. Growth forecasts for 2019 and 2020 are 5.5% and 6.0% respectively.
Since 2016, the Uzbekistan’s government has been undertaking large-scale reforms of its economic and political systems. The most important changes include: currency exchange liberalization, simplified business registration procedures, tax incentives, improved private property protection and privatization.
The higher education system is characterized by low access and concerns about the quality and relevance of the skills of its graduates. Tertiary enrolment, at around 10 percent, is low by regional and international standards, and contrasts with nearly universal enrolment in primary and secondary levels in Uzbekistan. Central planning influences both the number of students in higher education Institutions (HEIs) as well as their course of studies. (Source: WorldBank).
