According to a study conducted by the Higher School of Economics and published by the Institute of Education (IOE) HSE in 2016, there were more than 235,000 overseas students in Russian colleges and universities, constituting the five percent of the student body. Medicine is one of the most popular fields that enjoys a huge demand among Indian students. Given the high standards of medical education coupled with affordable fees, thousands of international students, especially Indians, visit Russia to pursue MBBS and other medical courses every year.
Over the last decade, there has been a significant rise in the number of overseas students traveling to study MBBS in Russia. The country has more than 55 medical universities out of which 12 provide MBBS courses in English Medium. Despite the state-of-the-art infrastructure and the best medical education, Russian medical universities are known for being very affordable. The average fee for MBBS course in a Russian medical college is between 3 to 5 Lacks per year.
Russian medical colleges provide the best in class education to every student, local or international. Contrary to excessive classroom lectures, medical courses in Russia are excellently designed to give students more exposure to real-world problems. The Russian style of teaching medicine often is just exceptional and attracts global diversity. Crimea State Medical University is a top Russian medical university that has given the highest FMGE/MCI passing percentage.
Over the years, there has been a sudden downfall in fee of Russian medical universities, and the number of international students has increased due to its quality of education at affordable cost.
The first challenge faced by medical aspirants in Russia is the language. Most Russian colleges offer MBBS courses either in entirely Russian or thoroughly English. However, some of the colleges provide the Dual Language program (English for the first three years and Russian for the remaining three years). Therefore, you need to do some research on your own or seek help from a consultancy while choosing a Russian university to pursue MBBS.
Some other challenges are:
Whatever the challenges are, Russia has become highly popular amongst Indian students for providing the best quality medical education. There are universities such as Moscow State University, Altai State Medical University, etc. that offer MBBS program in English medium for all six years.
