Despite the large number of students sitting for A/Ls every year, only a handful of them receive the privilege of entering the local Universities. Most students become disheartened or discouraged but what they do not know is that there are plenty of other options right at their doorstep. For those who studied in the stream of Biology for their A/L can now choose a path to study Medicine overseas.
Many Parents hesitate to send their children overseas thinking about the high cost, Security issues and the recognition of the university. They do not know about the opportunities given by the foreign government Medical Universities for a very low cost as they are funded by their government. Government Medical Universities are not profit oriented and the students can make their dream come true.
The Russian Educational Center (REC) has been collaborating with the Cultural Section of the Russian Embassy (Russian Center in Colombo) over time more than 20 years to give the best possible Russian educational experience and REC has been awarded as the Sole Representative for Kursk State Medical University and Tver State Medical University.

Kursk is one of the most ancient Russian Universities which was established in 1935. It is ranked as one of the 10 best Medical Universities in Russia. This was the first university in Russia to offer Medical Programme fully in English Medium. There are around 6000 students including around 3000 international students from more than 30 countries worldwide. Sri Lanka, Maldives, India, China, Bangladesh, Canada, Australia, Africa are some of them. We are happy to announce that most number of Sri Lankans are studying currently in this University in Russia around more than 500. The university offers many advantages, especially in that it is located in the centre of the city Kursk, thus traveling time and costs to the student in minimum, even while being able to reach any place of importance within minutes.
All the international students who successfully enter the university are guaranteed a place in one of the hostels, although the students are free to choose either to live in a hostel that we provide or rent an apartment.

Above Medical Universities are recognized by the Sri Lanka Medical Council (SLMC), WHO (World Health Organization), GMC (General Medical Council in UK), USA, Australia and globally. They are funded by the Russian Government and as a result, Sri Lankan students get the opportunity to study in Russia for the lowest rate than any other country.
Students do not feel that they are far away from their motherland as all the students are united and helping each other. Cultural events, fun activities, Sports and many entertaining events are there to relax both their bodies and minds.
