Medical University In Russia
Russia, with the highest literacy rate in the world (99.6%), has become increasingly popular as a destination of higher studies amongst International / Indian students alike due to its internationally respected standards of education (with European equivalence) and affordable costs. The last 15-20 years especially have seen the number of International students coming to the Russian Federation skyrocket and Indian students are not lagging behind, with thousands of students from all over India successfully graduating from the more popular universities every year.
This led to the emergence of self-appointed agents who were using many unethical tactics to promote the individual universities they represent. These agents are past students who have studied in Russia and now try to promote the university they have studied in.
For the benefit of the students, The Consulate General of the Russian Federation in India has recognized ‘EDURUS’ as the authorized ‘Admission department of Russian State and Government Universities in India’
EDURUS has been the pioneer in guiding Indian students to Russian Universities for more than a decade now. More than 3000 of our students have successfully graduated and are now practicing as doctors in India and around the world.
The eligibility for admission for the medical course as per the rules of the Medical Council of India is 50 per cent aggregate in Physics, Chemistry, Biology at the Class XII higher secondary (10+2) level for the general category.
The requirement for reserved category students is 40 per cent.
As per the rules of the Medical Council of India, an Indian student wishing to pursue MBBS abroad has to collect an ‘Eligibility Certificate’ from the Medical Council of India and must complete his MBBS course only from an university that is recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the UNESCO.
If the student wishes to return and practice in India , they’re required to pass a qualifying test known as a screening test. This rule is universally applicable to all students regardless from which country the student completes his or her Medical course.
An additional bonus for students completing their MBBS from Russia is that if they wish to settle and practice in any European country, they are eligible to do so without giving any entrance exam / screening test. The Russian Federation is a signatory of the ‘Bologna Convention’ for Equivalence of Education. This means that your degree received in Russia has unquestionable recognition in all European nations and is equal in value to a degree received in any other nation of the European Union. Your degree is also eligible for USMLE registration in the USA, PLAB registration in the UK and registration with the Australian Medical Council (AMC) in Australia.
