About Us :
The Medstudies Educational Foundation is a Non Governmental
Organization (NGO) operating in the field of medical education in the
Russian Federation. We were founded in 2001 in order to increase and simplify the admission of
students from foreign shores to the educational establishments.
WHO ARE WE ?
We are professionals who assist students and
families with educational decision making.
We help parents and students to take their right decision and
guide them to the schools or programs that might influence the
recommendations of parents and children.
HOW CAN WE HELP YOU ?
We provide experience, knowledge and objectivity to help
formulate a placement decision during a time that is confusing and
stressful for any parent. Since we have
extensive personal knowledge of a wide variety of schools and
programs, we know the important criteria and common mistakes to
avoid, when making recommendations for placement. We
utilize this knowledge and experience when helping parents to
carefully develop a strategy to intervene with their struggling
IS IT WORTH THE COST ?
Special Purpose schools and programs are expensive. We who are experienced and competent can
increase the odds that the first choice of a school or program
will be the right choice, helping to avoid additional failures for
the student. Parents who work with us
thus reduce the possibility of losing time and money as a result
of an inappropriate placement.
