    came back from russian university..total crap

    Advertisements



    dunno if it was my contractor fooling me or what but what all i thought and confirmed before going to russia was not there.firstly, as i was told that teachers speak good english etc was not there.i was shocked to see the way teachers thought for minutes before educing their words.mis-spelling was so prominent that whole class was enjoying the crap going on.every person asks for money.even for passport registrations the office people asked money openly even though my visa was still valid.day after day i saw every person asking money.commision,bribe etc is asked so shamelessly.after seeing classes,curriculum ,teachers etc ,i decided to withdraw admission.and this decision of mine entailed another row of bribing and stuff.the university principal asked me money to return my passport.he plailnly said " no money no sign..yes money yes sign" that was all that bald fella could say in english.i was stunned to see principal asking money for so very legal work of mine.had to give 600$ as bribe for getting back my documents.they dun let you meet dean.
    i am not trying to frighten prospective students but i am just referring to my horrendous experience there.crap english, stupid teachers talking in pidgin english seeing cieling,moreover i was told that from 4th year only few subjects will be in russian to facilitate interaction with patients.to my utter surprise, from 4th year on everything will be in russian medium .even books, exams and stuff.i was really fooled badly just cuz of greed for money of a bankrupt countrymen.my university is touted to be second ranked in russia.it's rsmu called m2 in moscow.i shelled out so much money but didnt get anything.and to tell about hostel for foreign student,,,omgoshies...i could still compromised with hostel if studies were what i paid for.anyways.i lost badly in this whole process..both money wise and time wise.could have utilised this for preparing again in my country. anyone going out for studies, i request him/her to ask students studying there.dun go if you have not talked to bunch of students actually studying there.just dun count on agents or contractors.my contractor left me after getting his commision in the middle of unknown city.we made our way back to hostel somehow.this experience really made me despondent about russia.never expected such thing to happen.if they dunno good english worth teaching in then i think, ethically they shouldn't announce english medium programs.

    horrible

    Reading your experiences, it seems like you had a horrible time. . . that's an understatement I know . . . but maybe S.N.A.F.U would be more appropriate.

    Re:

    Russia at this time is reminescent of 1920's gangland America. It will take some time, but the country where the sun never sets will eventually straighten itself out. While I cannot comment on individual schools, given the choices available I am not sure why any student from North America would go there.

    A Couple Questions

    Hey there Orphan. I sent you a PM but maybe you don't check thm. I know it was a bitter experience for you going to school in Russia but if you are willing to talk about it a little more I would really appreciate it. As somone still very interested in going to Russia I am a little disappointed to read what you wrote. Were there any English medium students who were at all happy with the program? Based on what you've said so far that seems very unlikely. I'm curious if you know if that is common at other schools claiming to offer full English services too.

    Also, could you tell me what the real application process is at RSMU? for example where did you have to go to write the entrance exam and how much do they charge in tuition? Also, what did the others who were staying plan on doing? Learning Russian fluently enough to study medicine in 3 years time. I do have more questions but if you wouldn't mind answering those I'd really appreciate.

    You dealt with and trusted your medical education and money in the hands of Russians??? Whyyyyy??! That's just a flagrant mistake.

    What country are you from?

    People in positions of authority often take advantage. If you ever go back to that school and some tries to take advantage of you again, call him on his or her pooh pooh i.e. dishonorable actions.

    well, sorry to hear about your experience. I am Polish but I would be kind of scared to go to Russia. That country is very corrupted, Ive heard that foreigns have problems with locals especially if they are not white. I would probably blend in, Polish people look alomst the same as Russians, but still there is a risk. On the other hand you should not judge entire Russian medical education based on one experience and one school. There have been some possitive posts about Russian schools in the past, and your post is the only negative one that I know of.Good luck with your medical education, whereever you decide to go. take care

    hi

    hey i did my MD from russia, i did not find so difficult there, as hw much u have written, even i liked there.
    abt education i liked their system, that is different that students from other countries dont want to study.
    I have already cleared my USMLE exams with gud scores. i think that is enough to say.
