On June 16-18 our Sri Lankan partner MedEd Consultancy took part in one of the largest education fairs in Sri Lanka – Future Minds.
In the course of the fair MedEd promoted educational programmes at Pirogov Russian National Research Medical University, Smolensk State Medical University, Ryazan State Medical University and Crimea Federal University to which was shown a lot of interest. Representatives of the company provided detailed responses to the interested candidates concerning entrance requirement, visa issues, practical training, recognition of the diploma by the Medical Council of Sri Lanka, employment opportunities, etc.
Besides, all the applicants were advised to take an orientation course provided by the company to facilitate the adaptation process in Russia.
According to the primary outcome of the fair more about 55 applicants have registered for this academic year and more than hundred for the two subsequent years. This could be considered a solid acknowledgment of the growing interest to Russian higher educational establishments among Sri Lankans.
