Top Medical Colleges in India



Russia has been popular destination for International students for pursuing MBBS right from Soviet Era. Russia boasts about occupying almost 30 positions amongst top 100 ranking Medical Universities according to the World Health Organization (WHO)'s "Directory of World Medical Schools". Pass-outs from Russian Medical Universities are presently working in the leading Hospitals across the globe. MBBS in Russia is a preferred choice for International students because of highly subsidized fee by Russian Ministry of Health & Education as compared to other western countries. High Quality of Education combined with this low cost is one of the main reasons for choosing top medical universities of Russia for MBBS.

Over a period of last 25 years, more than 6,000 doctors have returned back to India. Medical Schools for MBBS in Russia recognized by MCI opened a new avenue for students in India. Last year, low-cost Russia MBBS colleges attracted more than 3,500 Indian students. Russian MBBS degree in India is valid due to the college for MBBS in Russia recognized by MCA are available and they come under the top 10 medical colleges in Russia.


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 advice. However, you should be able to differentiate between admissions agents 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 numbers 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 who 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.

The types are:

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 Shiksha Advisor to avoid the mistake in university selection.

There are 7 ways that the students face huge problems due to the agents:

No government university will ever ask for 6 years fees together and provide you with the subsidy. These are schemes floated by the India based agents. Once you pay 6 years fees together, you cannot do anything to them even if you are placed in fully Russian taught programs. You lost your money and your medical career!

Never pay tuition fees to the agents. The students need to pay the fees directly to the university. Always take in writing from the agent that the fees would be paid to the university directly and the agent would not ask for it. At the last moment of hurry to depart, they generally throw these surprises and put the students in trouble.

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. SHIKSHA ADVISOR 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 SHIKSHA ADVISOR expert counselor to understand the options clearly. Click here to understand what Indian Embassy in Moscow has to convey towards students advisory.

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. Shiksha Advisor 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.

Russia is a country and it is situated in Asia and Eastern Europe. Russia is the largest country of the world by land area and it is also known as Russia Federation. Moscow is the capital of Russia and Russian Federation is the official name of Russia. Moscow, the capital of the Russia, is the largest city is the world. Population of Russia is about 146.6 million. Russian government is based on a democratic form of rule. The Russian Federation shares land border with Finland, Lithuania and Poland (both with Kaliningrad Oblast), Belarus, Latvia, Ukraine, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, China, Norway Estonia, Mongolia, and North Korea.


The most important thing about Russian weather is this: it really depends on the region. Most of Russia lies in a moderate climate zone and is quite a comfortable place to live in. According to the Russian Weather Service, the climate in Russia is becoming warmer, so the famous Russian frosts are now a rarity.

Unlike many Western countries, central heating is on in all houses and public buildings during the winter season. Heaters also work in public transport during the winter months. When you are in your dormitory room, in a classroom, on the bus, in a cafe, museum or any other public place, you won’t be likely to get cold. However, we suggest taking your winter and autumn clothing seriously. Resisting the Russian frost is not about fearing the cold, rather about dressing warmly. In autumn you can do with a light coat or a raincoat, but in winter you will need a warm coat and boots, a cap and definitely gloves.

Flights: Students can take direct flight to Russia on an average amount of 25000/-. Air Asthana, Air India, Emirates and Aeroflot all this provides regular flights from India to Russia. A direct flight from Delhi to Russia may take up to 7 hours whereas connecting flights may take around 12 hours to complete the journey. The main airport is in Moscow; from there the students can take taxi, bus or high speed train to reach the University.
