Far Eastern Federal University

About Vladivostok in Russia

Far Eastern Federal University is located in Vladivostok, Russia. One of the largest city in far eastern Russia, It is obvious that Vladivostok is a well-developed city because it is the administrative center of the Primosky Krai region. The place is well connected and has all the facilities one can expect in the administrative center of a region. The climate in the region is cold with the winter temperatures falling to less than -30oC.

Far Eastern Federal University

The Far Eastern Federal University is a very old and reputed University. The Far Eastern Federal University came into existence in the year 1899 and that makes it 122 years old. An old university is always held in high esteem and this university also deserves that honor.  The University is ranked at a prestigious 1368th position in the world.
The Institute teaching MBBS in the Far Eastern Federal University is the Far Eastern Federal University School of Biomedicine. Though the entire University is old like we said above, the Medicine faculty lacks the depth of that experience as it became operational in the year 2013. With around 500 students studying General Medicine currently, the Far Eastern Federal University official website claims that the School of Medicine is especially proud of its faculty that is highly qualified and experienced.
Also, the Medical Center associated with the School of Medicine is reportedly one of the best in the Russian Federation. The laboratories at the Medical School are also state-of-the-art and the students take part in Research work alongside the Academicians at the School.
But things may be slightly dicey for the Indian students.

  2. The University may be old but the School of Medicine became operational recently and it has an experience of less than 10 years.
  3. As mentioned before, the cold is severe, especially for us Indians who have lived all their lives in a Tropical climate.

  5. The Far Eastern Federal University lists very low in the Indian Embassy list of Russian Universities that classifies them on the basis of academic standing.
  6. The Far Eastern Federal University ranking in the world is 1368th but that speaks little about the quality of education in the recently opened School of Medicine.
