The Russian government has announced unique opportunity for Indian students to seek admission to the MBBS and post-graduate medical courses at universities in Russia.
Some of these universities include People’s Friendship University of Russia, Moscow; I M Sechenov Moscow Medical Academy, St. Petersburg; I P Pavlov State Medical University; Tambov State Medical University; Nizhny Novgorod State Medical University and Ryazan State Medical State Academy, among others.
Thousands of students from all over India successfully graduate from premier universities in Russia each year and over the last 15-20 years in particular, the number of international students coming to the Russian federation has risen.
For ensuring safety and transparency, the Consulate General of the Russian Federation in India has recognized EDURUSSIA as the authorized ad-mission department of the Russian state and government universities in India. Apart from being the authorized information and admission centre, EDURUSSIA also functions as the office of the international students department of Russian government universities in India.
Manoj Patki of EDURUSSIA said, “Admissions are conducted as per Medical Council of India (MCI) New Delhi rules and regulations and the applicants should have more than 50% in Physics, Chemistry and Biology in 10+2 from any state or central board of education in India while the requirement for the reserved category student is 40%.”
Courses are conducted in English medium. The Russian language is also taught as a subject in order to enable students to interact with local patients during their extensive clinicals and practicals. Russian degrees universities are appended with an ‘European Appendix’ as Russian curriculum is equated with medical and engineering curriculums across the European Union which allows our Indian graduates from Russia to apply for jobs and postgraduate courses in universities all over Europe in countries like Germany, he said.
These options are not available to MBBS graduates from India as the Indian MBBS degree does not qualify them to appear for the licensing exams of other countries like Gerrnany, he said. (TOI)
