On July 05, 2022, the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation announced that the total number of foreign citizens receiving their higher education at Russian universities has increased significantly over the past three years by more than 26,000 students. The greatest number of students coming to Russia to receive higher education are from India (16,7 thousand students) and Egypt (12,4 thousand students).
Medical programs are the most popular and sought-after among international students. The Russian model of the healthcare system is the most referenced one in comparison with other countries. The high level of teaching achieved by Russian academics is well known all over the world. The prestige of medical education is created not only by high-profile regalia, but by perfect training programs closely related to theory and practice, modern technical equipment, and most importantly, our graduates who successfully pass exams in other countries, easily confirming their high-class qualifications, contribute to the development of world medicine, open hospitals and clinics around the world and make progressive scientific discoveries. For example, in India, the graduates from Russia occupy the 1st place in the number of those who successfully passed FMGE (Foreign Medical Graduate Examination) to confirm their qualifications. The high quality, accessibility and prestige of Russian education have a positive impact on the growth of the number of foreign applicants to Russian universities.
