Student Services & Initiatives

To help medical students in India get admission to top-ranked and government medical universities in Russia, we offer a variety of integrated student services right from counseling to travel arrangements and continuous support during students’ medical education in Russia.

Our student support services ensure that students have access to everything they need, not only to get admission to study MBBS in Russia but also to make the most of their medical education in Russia, complete their medical graduation, qualify the medical licensing examination, and become a certified doctor.

We believe that we are the bridge that aspiring doctors can walk on to make their vision of becoming a doctor a reality, and our end-to-end service approach is a testimony to our belief. Following services are an essential ingredient of our student-focused approach that has helped 15,000+ medical aspirants become doctors:

Student Support Services

Counseling

The first interaction between the students and our representatives marks the beginning of our association with our students. We encourage all the students as well as their parents and guardians to contact our support team and get the counseling they need to come to the right decision regarding their medical education and career.

We provide free counseling to students interested in studying MBBS in Russia. For counseling, we have a team of 100+ expert counselors and admission advisors. Depending on the convenience of the students, counseling is provided through online as well as the offline medium. For counseling on the telephone, you can call on our Toll-Free number 1800-833-3338.

University Selection

Russia is home to 50+ MCI-Approved Medical Universities that offer MBBS admissions for Indian students. All those universities have different fees structure, facilities, and located in different regions of Russia.

For a new student, making the right choice from so many options and selecting the best-fit university can be difficult.

We help students select a medical university that is the best fit for them, depending on their financial means, personal preferences, the preferred medium of instruction, and academic records.

Admission Application

Rus Education is exclusively authorized by Russian Centre for Science and Culture (Cultural Department of The Embassy of Russian Federation in India) to promote Russian Education and perform all activities on behalf of Russian universities as per the authorizations.

To make the process for admission to the MBBS program easier and hassle-free, Rus Education Team, on behalf of the students, files an application for admission to the MBBS Program of the selected university at no additional cost to students.

Financial Support

While medical education in Russia is very affordable, some students may require financial support to fund their MBBS program.

We help the students in getting an education loan by securing a provisional registration letter from the concerned University and arranging for other documents required in getting a loan sanctioned.

We also offer the scholarship to meritorious students as well as students in need. In 2019, we distributed the following scholarships:

Badhte Kadam Scholarship in honor of Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, Former President & The Missile Man of India, honored with Bharat Ratna, the highest civilian award in the Republic of India.

Udaan Scholarship in loving memory of Late Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee, Former Prime Minister of India and Member of Parliament, honored with Bharat Ratna, the highest civilian award in the Republic of India.

Druzhba Scholarship in honor of Late H.E. Mr. Alexander Mikhailovich Kadakin, Former Russian Ambassador to India, honored with Padma Bhushan, the third-highest civilian award in the Republic of India.

Vir Jawaan Scholarship to pay our tribute to all the brave soldiers of mother India, who care for our lives more than their own.

Maitreyi Scholarship in loving memory of Late Smt. Sushma Swaraj, Former Member of Parliament and Minister of External Affairs of India who was called India's "best-loved politician" by The Wall Street Journal.

Samarthya Scholarship in loving memory of Late Shri Arun Jaitley, Former Finance Minister of India and Member of Parliament, under whose leadership, India became the fastest growing economy in the world.

More information about the scholarship can be found in the section “Scholarships for MBBS in Russia.”

Documentation

Going to Russia for medical education is not a small decision and requires lots of paperwork and documentation. Immigration documents are required to be compiled for passport and visa formalities. Further, MBBS Admission and University procedures need a number of academic documents and student records that need to be apostilled and submitted to the University.

Thanks to our experienced team, which is dealing with the same documentation for years, our students don’t need to worry about any of the paperwork. We have a separate team to deal with every of the documentation needs. Students need to timely submit a copy of the requisitioned documents, and our team takes care of everything.

Attestation of documents from the Ministry of Home Affairs, getting eligibility certificate from the Medical Council of India, and all other documentation requirements are also taken care of by our team.

Pre-Departure Ceremony

In accordance with the direction of Embassy of India in Moscow, Russia (Education Wing), we organize our annual assembly “Sobraniye” – a pre-departure ceremony for Indian Medical Students going to study MBBS in Russia where we encourage the students for their new journey and brief them about the best practices for traveling and starting life as a medical student in Russia.

Every year, Sobraniye is organized in the capital city of India in the month of September in collaboration with the Russian Centre for Science and Culture, New Delhi (RCSC).

In Sobraniye, we invite dignitaries from the healthcare and government ecosystem to grace the ceremony and encourage the students for the medical pilgrimage they are going to embark on. In the event, parents, guardians, and delegates of Russian Medical Universities also participate with the Education Head of Russian Center of Science and Culture.

Sobraniye provides a platform for the students to connect with other medical aspirants who are going to Russia to pursue MBBS. It also provides a platform for the parents to connect and build a community for co-operation and open discussion.

Travel Arrangements & Airport Pickup

For passport, visa, and other documents required for traveling to Russia and getting entry to the University, students get full support from the Administration Department of Rus Education.

For all our students, we arrange for the flight, make sure that students have all the documents, and escort the students at the airport. At the respective airports in Russia, students are received by Rus Education representatives who guide them from the airport to the University Campus and initiate the process for students to settle at the University.

University Arrangements

Before our students even reach the University, we make sure that proper arrangements for hostel and mess are in place.

Other Support Services

Besides core services, we also help students in other aspects like getting Russian currency at competitive exchange rates (thanks to our partnership with the trusted forex dealers), obtaining local sim cards, passport and Visa renewals, etc.

While staying at the University, we continue to support our students through Rus Education representatives in Russia. If students have concerns of any kind while studying MBBS in Russia, they can always contact their dedicated counselor/ Admission Advisor. Once we receive a student request, timely support and resolution are assured.

Medical Licensing Examination Preparation

MBBS from Russia from a well-recognized medical university is not only recognized in India but in the United States, Canada, and other countries worldwide.

After completing medical graduation in Russia, students can appear for the medical licensing examination of the country where they want to practice. Post-qualification of the medical licensing examination, students can get a license to practice medicine in the respective country.

To practice in India, medical graduates from Russian need to qualify the Foreign Medical Graduates Examination (also known as MCI Screening Test or FMGE). FMGE is conducted by the National Board of Examinations of India.

To help our students prepare for FMGE, we provide coaching through our sister concern, NEET & NEXT Medical Academy. FMGE preparation, along with the MBBS Program, well prepares the students to crack FMGE after MBBS from Russia, secure a license to practice medicine in India, and live the dream they worked so hard for.

Russian Education Fair

To facilitate direct interaction between students and University delegates, we, in collaboration with the Russian Centre of Science and Culture, organize Russian Education Fair every year. In the Fair, hundreds of students and parents participate to get guidance and advice from the official representatives of the Universities.

The annual Russian Educational Fair is organized in major cities of India including Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Ahmedabad, and Trivandrum. In the Fair, eligible students also get on-spot admission to study MBBS in Russia.

Parents Association

To provide a community platform for parents of students studying MBBS in Russia, we have formed the Parents Association of Indian Students Abroad (PAISA). PAISA enables parents and guardians of students to discuss their concerns and suggestions for improvement and share the progress of their children.

Every year, the annual meeting of PAISA is organized in major cities across India in which, along with the parents, members of the Russian Center for Science & Culture take active participation. At the end of the meeting, participants share a feedback form, which has helped us consider their suggestions and improve the services for students studying MBBS in Russia, regarding academics as well as living conditions.


We at Rus Education are committed to helping students from the day we get their first call to the day they become qualified doctors. Our integrated services have helped thousands of medical aspirants become doctors, and we hope that those can help you too.
