With a new course in medicine taught in English, the number of foreigners, particularly Indians, at the Far Eastern Federal University has increased.

The Far Eastern Federal University in Vladivostok has launched a new course in Medicine, which is taught in English. Students from India mostly are studying the course.

Rupjyoti Brahma Karjee, the Consul General of India in Vladivostok, recently met with the first-year students of the new programme, said PrimaMedia.

"We are pleased that the Indian students have begun to study in the Far Eastern Federal University. The campus on the Russkiy Island has the best conditions for them. Medical programmes have opened in the university only recently, but a team of brilliant teachers who provide excellent training for future doctors has already been organised. I am sure that every year you will be getting more and more students wanting to enrol in the Far Eastern Federal University in India", said Mr Karjee.

There are around 25,000 Indian nationals studying and training in Russia at the moment, most of whom are studying Medicine.

The FEFU in 2016 launched the first programme in Medicine in the Russian Far East, taught in a foreign language, English. A total of 40 students from India have been enrolled in the new course.

In the current academic year, over 3,000 students from 52 countries have been admitted for study in the Far Eastern Federal University.
