Study Engineering in Russia

Russia has benefited from 300 years of history in engineering education and the same period of industrial progress. The beginning of engineering in Russia was laid by the foundation of the School of Mathematical and Navigational Sciences in Moscow in accordance with Tsar Peter the Great’s Decree dated 27 January 1701 (new calendar). The Decree put special emphasis on the fact that the school needed not only sea-sailing and engineering, but also artillery and civil use.

The total number of students at the school was defined as 500, but at times went up to 700. The school taught mathematics, geodesy, sea sailing, cartography, astronomy and a number of other engineering and technical subjects. It was soon placed in the building of Sucharyovskaya Tower, which incorporated special laboratories equipped for practical studies and an observatory. The navigators practiced on sea ships and made geodesic maps. By the time of establishment, the school was the first and the biggest educational institution in Europe of its type.

i have done my mbbs from russia and i am going to pursue my post graduation here itself.. or some other place abroad.. do i have to give any entrance after returning to india after i complete my pg abroad?? please guide

Akram Khan 9th Apr, 2020


To practice in india as registered doctor by MCI the foreign medical graduate has to pass the FMGE exam.

Thoso who obtained their PG from abroad are not recognized by MCI and there is no such exam to get recognized.

It is in discussion that for post graduate medical aspirant who obtained their pg from abroad, a similar exam like FMGE should be conducted by DNB so that they can practice in india. And MCI is also looking forward for this. However as of now there is no such exam for foreign medical pg aspirant.

You can give FMGE and after clearing that apply for neet pg to study pg in india.

Hope this helps.
