For all postgraduate medical courses in Russia, including Masters Degree and Doctoral programs, foreign citizens are accepted who have documents which have been accepted by the Ministry of Education of the Russian Federation as being equivalent to the graduate medical and dental programs conducted in Russia. To attain this equivalency, all original documents have to be “Apostiled” in their home country or legalized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

In some cases, if degrees are not equivalent, the student may need to undergo a bridging program along with his postgraduate education to make his Indian degree equivalent to the Russian graduate degree. This bridging program runs simultaneously with the postgraduate study and no extra cost is incurred. The total duration for the postgraduate program including the 3-month Russian language and the bridging program would remain 3 years depending on the specialization.

The degrees are also valued in the USA, UK, India, Pakistan, Srilanka, Africa, Middle East, Saudi Arabia, Mauritius and Seychelles where our students are employed.
