University’s highly qualified faculty constantly polishes up and updates the education process to ensure the highest standards of our graduates. In recent years we are putting more efforts to invest in developing students’ practical skills and their summer clinical practice. To this end we introduce new programmes and elective courses.
Needless to say that for a future specialist studies is No 1 priority. But it is also evident that a young person cannot and should not confine himself to lecture halls and laboratories. University provides its students with a variety of sports and recreation facilities.
Productive studies and interesting life in any country are impossible without good command of the native language. Learning Russian is a strong aid in accumulating knowledge and experience from your professors and tutors, doctors and other specialists whom international students daily encounter during classes and clinical practice. It also helps easily accommodate and mix with the local people, learn more about great history and culture of the country where young years were spent.
