Top 10 Factors To Consider Before Applying To A Russian Medical University for Admissions

As an Indian student seeking admission to a Russian medical institution, it is important to carefully consider the following factors:

  1. Research the universities you are considering, including their rankings, academic records, faculty, and infrastructure. You may also want to speak with alumni to get a sense of the quality of education at the institutions you are considering.
  2. Determine whether the universities you are considering offer courses in English. Some universities may offer full courses in English for all six years, while others may only teach in English for the first three years, with the final three years taught in Russian.
    It is important to be aware of this and plan accordingly, as you may eventually need to become proficient in Russian in order to interact with patients during clinical attachments.
  3. Consider dealing directly with universities for admission, rather than using educational consultants (ECs) or agents. If you do decide to use an EC, be sure to carefully research their background and reputation, and ask for recommendations from former or current students who have used their services.
  4. If you do decide to use an EC, be sure to carefully research the credentials of any sub-agents they may use, and verify information with the main EC.
  5. Make sure all relevant documentation is in order, including contracts that are written in English or bilingual (English and Russian) and that you fully understand before signing.
    Avoid signing contracts that are only in Russian if you do not fully understand their contents.
  6. Carefully consider fees and charges, including tuition, hostel fees, and EC service charges. These should be clearly reflected in the contract and the university admission letter.
  7. When making payments, insist on banking transactions and ask for a proper receipt. Make sure the receipt bears the name of the EC's organization or company, and also ask for a fee receipt from the university.
    Proper documentation of fees and charges is necessary for obtaining a bank loan and protecting your interests.
  8. Research the hostel facilities being offered by the university, as some may not be in good condition. You may also want to consider making your own housing arrangements in local apartments, depending on your dietary preferences and ability to cook your own food.
  9. Be sure to obtain medical insurance as soon as you arrive in Russia. Insist on a proper receipt for insurance premiums from the university or EC, and make sure you have the policy papers in your possession.
    This will be necessary when seeking medical assistance at a polyclinic or hospital.
  10. Keep in mind that Russia can have harsh winters, so be sure to have proper warm clothing and footwear to help you cope with the weather.
