The Russian Education System
While Russian students have to seek admission to the universities through competitive exams, no such regulations apply to international students. The universities do not charge any capitation fees nor is any donation required to be paid. The cost of study is also very reasonable and affordable, which is another great attraction for international students.
A number of Russian medical universities offer courses with English or French as the medium of instruction. In case the student opts to study in Russian medium, he / she would have to undergo one academic year in learning the Russian Language prior to the commencement of the chosen course. Those who opt for the English or French Medium do not have to undergo the language course, but learn the Russian language as part of the regular curriculum.
International students are taught in groups of 9 to 12 per batch. The faculty comprises specialized and dedicated teaching staff, many of whom hold Doctorates or are Members of the Russian Academy of Sciences, and may have worked or taught in USA, UK, France, Germany etc.
The curriculum is very well structured and advanced, on par with any western country. Academic progress is monitored through regular tests in each subject and the student is permitted to take the final exams only after he or she has passed all the test papers. Evaluation in both the test as well as the exam is done on a 5-grade scale where 5 marks represents Excellent (80% & above), 4 marks represents Good (60% to 80%), 3 marksrepresents Satisfactory or Pass (50% to 60%) and 2 marks & less represents Unsatisfactory or Fail. Students are allowed three attempts with a gap of at least one week between attempts to pass the exams. In this way, the system ensures that the pass percentage in Russian universities is high, and the weaker students do not have to lose an academic year.
Another interesting feature of the education system in Russia is that the Tests as well as the Examinations are conducted viva voce rather than through written answers. By this, the knowledge and understanding of the subject by the student is assessed rather than his / her ability to memorize the answers and reproduce them in writing.
There are two semesters each year: September 1st to January 25th, and February 9th to June 30th. Winter vacations are from 26th January to 9th February while the summer vacation is from July 1st to August 30th.
