A study of the world picture and a linguistic picture of the world of students from Kazakhstan in terms of internationalization shows that there is a need for additional programs for studying the English language so a student can learn about the culture of the country he is studying, and then this knowledge can become part of his mentality. There is also a need for technologies in the educational process, such as critical thinking development, design, modular instruction, and interactive technologies that would initialize student participation and activity, orienting the student towards an independent thirst for knowledge and research work. What are the potential opportunities for students from Kazakhstan to study in foreign universities? To what extent are they prepared for this, above all, in terms of effective teaching? Will it be hard for our students to comprehend the wisdom of management, finance, accounting, auditing, restaurant and hotel business, logistics, and law in a foreign university?
