We did research with the help of some Indian students who are currently studying MBBS in Russia. Some of the facts written above are mostly conveyed by them to us. But the main part we should mention is that not all the colleges in Russia will provide the students with all the facilities mentioned above. Only a few colleges which are in the top of the ranking lists will provide high quality education combined with a good educational infrastructure. Some students who did their MBBS in Russia were not very happy to share their experience with them. The negative aspects must also be considered before joining MBBS in Russia.

In Summary

There are many other factors which could spoil a student’s education when studying MBBS in Ireland. So proper research must be done by the student before joining a university or approaching a consultancy.

Many consultancies ignore to give you this information about the disadvantages so self research is the best to overcome these prime factors which may affect a students educational career. The main aim of the article is to educate the student about the pros and cons of doing MBBS in Ireland. Some universities might provide top quality education without any of the cons
