    European Medical Schools which accepts foreign Russian students transfer

    I am an undergraduate whom has just completed South Australian Matriculation with a fairly average score, pursuing for medical degree.

    One of my options are Moscow Medical Academy(Russia) which is financially affordable by my family. I've heard about how bad the place is, how the education systems are and etc.. And also the good sides, as I have a high school mate reading medicine there, claiming it isn't as bad as what people said it is.

    As I'm financially restrained, I do not want to burdened my parents further. Options to other universities doesn't seem to be convincing. I figured that I complete my First year in Russia and transfer to other medical universities in Europe into Second year. I know it is a stupid route or rather putting myself into hanging-by-a-thread situation if I do not get accepted anywhere. The thing is with my South Australian Matriculation results which are just average, wouldn't get me any scholarships nor loans(in Malaysia), not until that I am in the university.

    Since I could afford to study in Russia I reckon that in the Second year I'd be able to apply for a loan(higher chance of getting the loan since I am already in the university, perhaps, good results) and transfer to other European schools.

    I was wondering if that is possible, to transfer from Russian medical school to Europe?

    Please help me out. (I'm a pain in the *** for my parents for fooling around for so long and did not know of the consequences I'm facing now) For undergraduates out there, start planning your tertiary studies now! Don't be a slow starter like
    me. Ahhhh... it sucks

    that's bulls*** even with plab today non-EU degrees are put in stand-by for years before hoping a (GP) internship vacancy.
    and nowhere else in EU russian and ukrainian degree are recognised. Only EU degrees are fuly recognised within EU. A non-EU MD can usually apply as .. a nurse in western europe countries , I know people in this case
    I was considering russia before romania , but now that I see that for the same tuition (in Russia you get screwed with "extras", change rates and bribes etc...) I have a EU degree , I really don't regret. Especialy when I receive tons of PM from students wishing to transfert out just to get european degree. They accept retaking 2 years for it (when it's possible)

    I can't fully agree with you. Major German universities have med degree programs in English, the only problem is they are more expensive than German ones. So, again it's a question of what you can afford.

    Hmmm. Well, I have not found one German medical school with a program in English. Not ONE, and I am fluent in German and I have checked websites. Can you cite some specific examples? I would be very interested to see what I missed. All of the Americans I know who went to medical school in Germany completed their studies in German.

    In my experience, the best way to contact university directly and ask whether you can transfer your credits. The uni administration behave quite different. Curiously, the decision might be contoroversial in different parts of Germany :-)

    That is the case almost everywhere, certainly, but I still have not found any German schools accepting transfer work -- with the exception of German students who studied IN GERMAN at Semmelweis and Pecs (and I believe one other E-EU school... was it Charles?). Anyway, these students are German nationals who were allowed to transfer back in with advanced standing from the foreign school, which is also in the EU. I don't know if they are as accepting of foreigners wanting to transfer in, especially from outside of the EU. They certainly weren't interested in letting me do so from the United States.

    I also used to know one guy. He finished Ryazan State MedUni (Russia) and went to Munster to work as a doc. The have recognized 5 years of his education and ask him to pass the final year courses in Germany. Afterwards, he was eligable for internship.

    I believe you... perhaps we are talking semantics, here. The situation you describe is not a "transfer," per se, because the physician in question had already completed his entire medical education before entering Germany and then had to re-take the final year. That isn't a transfer, that's a certification hoop to jump through for a physician to practice in Germany. A medical student coming from Russia is going to meet with considerably more resistance in the EU, certainly.

    Coming from an EU institution a new graduate needs only to be able to speak the German language, and s/he is eligible for internship and specialization.
