Vinnytsia National Medical University Review by Shobhit Jayaswal

Pradeep Jayaswal & Shobhit Jayaswal of GMF with the Vice-Chancellor of Vinnitsa National Medical University, Ukraine.
Pradeep Jayaswal & Shobhit Jayaswal of GMF with the Vice-Chancellor of Vinnitsa National Medical University, Ukraine.

In my recent visits to Ukraine, I and Pradeep Jayaswal had in-depth discussions with the Vice-Chancellor of Vinnitsa National Medical University in 2017 and 2019. We discussed at length about the mission and vision the university has towards the incoming batch of Indian students and how we can improve things for the current students. The University made one thing very clear, that they want only those students who are interested to study and has the willingness to work hard. The University promised to leave no stone unturned for those students who are willing to work hard. We have also started MCI Screening Test Coaching at VNMU and opened an Indian mess in 2019 for the students.

I, on behalf of Global Medical Foundation and VNMU, would like to invite Indian students to apply for admission. In my opinion, Vinnitsa National Medical University is among the best University in the world for Indian students for MBBS in abroad.

I also had interactions with the graduating batch of the year 2017 and 2019. The reviews of these students only strengthened my belief that this is the best university for MBBS in abroad. The hostel is within 5-7 minutes of walking distance from the university. Parents can be relieved about the security of their children and with the availability of Indian mess, Indian food won’t be a problem for the students.
