It is not an easy decision for the students and parents to study MBBS in abroad at low cost. Most of the time, it is the dream of the students but the parents are not aware of the advantages and disadvantages of studying MBBS in abroad. Every country has both the sides. The students need to know both the angles while taking the decision to study MBBS in abroad at low cost. The decision is based on consultant’s advice. However, you should be able to differentiate between an admission agent and study MBBS in abroad consultant. In 2016, estimated 3500+ Indian students looking for low-cost MBBS in abroad decided for Russia as their destination. Medical education in Russia is now chosen by a maximum of students in India.

The maximum number of students go to Russia to study MBBS every year. Right from 1996, the Indian students went to Russia to study MBBS abroad. ThoUSAnds of doctors are already practicing in India whose finished their MBBS studies in Russia. However, before you take the decision, you must understand that there are 3 types of MBBS courses in Russia in various universities.

  • Fully English taught MBBS courses in Russia (In very few Russian MBBS colleges).
  • Fully Russian taught MBBS programs in Russia (All the Russian medical universities).
  • Bilingual programs (3 years in English and last 3 years in the Russian language in most of the universities)

The cost to study MBBS / MD in Russia in the English language is always higher than that of the Russian taught programs. So the students should make their budgets as per the teaching language. For example, the fees from 2nd year in Dagestan Medical University (Approved by MCI) is USD 3,700 in English language and only USD 3,000 if you choose to study in Russian taught program from 2nd to 6th year. To understand more, you may inquire with Profound visa to avoid the mistake in university selection.

There are 5 ways that the students face huge problems due to the agents.
  • The agents show the tuition fees of the program based on Russian taught MBBS course. However, when you reach there, you realize that the university tuition fees charge for English-taught program would be higher. This would make your planned financial budget in trouble. Profound visa has decided to give you both the costs for all the universities so that you can easily compare it with the other agents and arrive at a proper decision.
  • Many of the agents try to fool you a by promoting a bilingual program as a fully English-taught program. You need to be very careful for this. You may get in touch with Profound visa expert counselor to understand the options clearly.
  • The students should have MCI Screening Test coaching (Online) before they depart to study MBBS in Russia. Do not believe in a future promise by the agents that the classroom coaching is available.
  • Many agents promote “Subsidized Fees” with the Russian medical universities. In this scheme, they ask the students to pay 6 years fees together with a discount. Profound visa always warns the student that there is no such system by the university having “subsidized fees”. The amount would be kept by the agent and ultimately you would end us in trouble when they do not pay the fees to the university on your behalf to study MBBS in Russia.
  • MCI Screening Test coaching is not available in most of the Russian medical universities. Many agents simply convey that it is available and even take the money. You must ensure that a MCI Screening Test / FMGE online coaching module is made available to you before your departure. Imagine a situation that you chose a wrong university offering bilingual teaching such as Tver Medical College. You did not get the FMGE coaching. The result would be absolutely disastrous! Indian consulate in Moscow has published the results of MCI Screening Test for individual universities to support you select the university to study MBBS in Russia with clarity.
