We acknowledge foreign education and (or) foreign qualifications (FEQ) for the purposes of facilitating admission to the University and allowing persons with such FEQ to engage in professional activities at the University.

Part 11 of Article 107 of the Federal Law of the Russian Federation No. 273-FZ “On Education in the Russian Federation,” enacted on December 29, 2012, defines the right to self-recognition. The mechanism for FEQ recognition is established only by the University.

An expert committee of University employees oversees the procedure for recognizing FEQ for the purposes of organizing admission to the University and granting persons with such FEQ access to engage in professional activities at the University.

The Rector’s directive establishes the expert committee. The activity of the expert committee is organized by the Dean’s office of the University’s International School of Medicine.

The procedure for recognizing FEQ for the purposes of organizing admission to the University and granting individuals with such FEQ access to carry out professional activities in the University is done on a reimbursable basis.

The cost of the procedure for FEQ recognition is approved by the Rector’s order every year.
