Some of the major disadvantages of studying MBBS in Russia are explained as follows:
Although Russia is one of the best places for Indian students to study MBBS but it is always good to be aware of problems:
The temperature in Russia drops down to 0 degrees for 3-4 months which is a very big climate change for Indian students.
• Bilingual Course
A few universities in Russia offer bilingual courses where the first few years are taught in English and the last few years are taught in Russian language. This leads to low overall grades. It is extremely important for Indian students to choose only an English medium MBBS course in Russia.
The course duration is slightly longer than other countries. But the quality of education you get is the worth of your time.
• Language barrier
Most of the Indian students face problems in communicating in the local language. Do you have a solution? Yes! Eduversity provides an online Russian language program to remove the language barrier. Watch the video to know more disadvantages of studying MBBS in Russia.
How do agents cheat on students?
1. No government university will ever ask for 6 years fees together.
By showing you the subsidy, you can fall for these fake schemes. Once you pay 6 years fees together to study medicine in Russia, you become helpless even if you are placed in entirely Russian taught MBBS programs. You lost your money and a precious medical career!
2. Never agree to pay tuition fees to the agents
The students need to pay the fees directly to the Russian medical University. So it is in the student's interest to confirm in writing that you would pay the fees directly to the University. OVERSEAS follows a simple practice that the fees would be paid directly to the University, keeping 100% transparency.
3. The tuition fees you show are based on a Russian taught MBBS course, not an English-taught program.
However, when you reach there, you realize that the university tuition fees charged for the English-taught program would be higher, which would put your planned financial budget in trouble. OVERSEAS is a responsible career counselor for MBBS Abroad and has a professional approach.
4. Many agents try to fool you by promoting a bilingual program as a fully English-taught program.
You need to be very careful about MBBS admission in Russia. You may get in touch with OVERSEAS expert counselors to understand the options clearly. Click here to understand what the Indian Embassy in Moscow conveys towards student advisory.
5. MCI Screening Test coaching
The students should have MCI Screening Test coaching / NEXT Coaching (Online) before they depart to study at Russian medical universities. Do not believe in a future promise by the agents that the professors would be sent for NEXT coaching!
