There are more than 50 MCI recognised medical universities in Russia. Most of these universities are WHO recognized also. The course duration is 6 years which includes internship in Russia.

MBBS in Russia is not good?

Many people will tell you that MBBS in Russia is not good. This statement is partially true and not entirely incorrect. Here is why:

  • Bilingual Course: There are many universities providing a bilingual course to the students. This means that some years will be taught in the English language and the rest will be in the Russian language. This causes problems for the students. It is better to study in Mordovia State University and Ulyanovsk State University which provide 6-year English medium studies to the students, however, the local language is taught to the students.
  • Bad guidance by Agents: A lot of consultancies have never visited the university personally and are not aware of the actual situation in the universities. This means that students are misguided more often than not. This is why selecting the right consultancy is important. Global Medical Foundation‘s Shobhit Jayaswal has visited Mordovia State University and Ulyanovsk State University which provide MBBS in Russia therefore we can guide students in the best way.
  • Corruption in many universities: There is corruption in many universities where students are asked money for passing the exams. There are many students who are happy to pay this by themselves so that they don’t have to study. This results in poor education for such students and eventually resulting in failure in FMGE/NEXT.
  • The difference in Climate: Many students are unable to adjust to the cold climate in Russia. It is to be noted that the weather will be below zero degrees for 2-3 months in a year. However, one should not go to Russia if you have any problem related to a cold climate.

You can say, these are the top disadvantages of studying MBBS in Russia.
