Medical education abroad has been an optimistic choice for thousands of Pakistani students who, despite working hard day and night, are unfortunately unable to get an MBBS seat in any government medical university in the country. The beleaguered students are often burdened with exorbitant and hidden fees to study in private Pakistani colleges to fulfill their dream.
During this time, students often start looking for opportunities to study MBBS abroad. Medical universities abroad are known to provide easy admission, and at a comparatively lower cost than private colleges for MBBS in Pakistan.
However, it should be remembered that quality education and low fees may not always go hand in hand. One can easily find many universities offering MBBS admission at low fees, but there are very low chances for students to get MBBS.
Here are some of the many advantages that MBBS studies in Russia proudly stand on!
AFFORDABILITY AND FEASIBILITY
One of the most important reasons that make Russia stand out among the best countries for Pakistani students to study MBBS abroad is the overall accessibility and feasibility that it provides to Pakistani students. Travel to the country and even within the country is extremely affordable. Even the general cost of living in the country is extremely low compared to the countries under it.
The availability of medical education in Russia is an added advantage for students who want to study MBBS abroad but are concerned about the cost. MBBS costs in Russia are generally considered to be pocket-friendly.
RECOGNITIONS AND APPROVALS
The main concern for students seeking MBBS admission abroad is its recognition and approval in Pakistan or in other countries like the USA, UK, Canada, etc. where they wish to pursue their career. Each country has its own regulatory body that determines and checks the quality of practitioners. In Pakistan, this regulatory body is the Pakistan Medical Comission (PMC). In order to practice in Pakistan, MBBS graduates from abroad have to take and qualify for a medical licensing examination called the Foreign Medical Graduate Examination (FMGE).
MBBS in Russia offers Pakistani students the advantage of receiving coaching for the said examination during their studies at the university itself. Therefore, the best medical universities in Russia often provide students with counselling and career guidance at an early stage to help them prepare for the challenges they may face.
A WARM AND ENTHUSIASTIC STUDENT LIFE
Audiences of expert educational philosophers and psychologists are not the only representation of quality education, as students tend to learn more outside them. Russia has been a close ally of Pakistan, and as a result, the two cultures have been strongly influenced by each other. From superstitions to food, the two cultures have been interwoven in a close network of friends for decades. This is one of the many possible reasons why Russian locals and Pakistani visitors often feel comfortable in each other’s company.
Medical students studying MBBS in Russia can therefore witness a warm and comfortable local environment that helps them in their learning process. It also allows them to adapt well to a culture that is relatively different from their home culture.
4. LEARNING-CENTRED EDUCATIONAL PRACTICE
Russian education is known for promoting a learning-centered educational process. Strategies such as group learning, peer tutoring, etc. are very popular in everyday learning. In addition to these, information and communication technology (ICT) tools are also used on a daily basis to engage in inherent multisensory learning.
Universities are also taking the initiative to provide students with state-of-the-art learning tools and developments such as artificial intelligence, robotics, etc.
ENDLESS CAREER OPPORTUNITIES
As mentioned above, medical education in Russia often acts as a pathway to unlimited opportunities. From a regular job in a hospital to higher education in some of the most renowned associations, to working with world-renowned names in medical research practice, to exploring some unconventional options and practicing after MBBS.
Studying MBBS in Russia makes students eligible and many times desirable for various positions and careers, thus increasing the chances of a successful life many times over.
UNLIMITED OPPORTUNITIES WITHRUSSIAN LANGUAGE
Studying abroad can present many challenges, most of which are language barriers. When it comes to studying abroad, communication is key. It helps a lot in adapting to a new environment and building new experiences.
It is argued that learning the language and literature of culture provides a unique perspective on that culture. As a world power, Russia is the world’s largest country and its mother tongue, Russian, is of paramount importance worldwide.
The demand for Russian linguistics in Pakistan has increased faster than ever before. The excellence of Russian as a professional language is undoubtedly astonishing and breathtaking.
