  • Worldwide Recognition: The medical universities of Ukraine are recognized by WHO, UNESCO, European Medical Council, African Medical Councils, Medical Council of India (MCI), Pakistan Medical Commission (PMC), and all other medical councils.
  • Affordable Education Cost: MBBS in Ukraine is much cheaper as compared to other European countries but the degree value is same. That's why a number of students from the U.K, Germany, France, Canada, Italy, Spain, etc are studying medicine in Ukraine as they cannot afford the cost in their own country.
  • No Entrance Exam: There is no entrance or language proficiency exam (IELTS/TOEFL) for admission in MBBS in Ukrainian medical universities.
  • Cost of Living: Living cost in Ukraine is much lower than other European countries but you can enjoy the same lifestyle & diversity. This has become an effective reason for many to select Ukraine as their destination for higher education.
  • Personal Development: Students studying in Ukraine are encouraged to take part in other extracurricular activities like seminars and conferences to build their interest and confidence for overall learning and development.
  • Permanent Settlement: Unlike other European countries, Ukraine offers permanent residency opportunities for all International students from every country, so they can manage to do work in Ukraine after degree completion.
  • The medium of instruction in universities is English which is very comfortable for foreign students.
  • Visa Processing is easy and simple as compared to other European countries.
  • Ukraine has a good diversified structure of students. Students from many countries are studying there.

Disadvantages of studying MBBS in Ukraine

  • Climatic Conditions: Ukraine has a cold climate. One could expect frequent snowfalls from October till March.
  • Language Barrier: The official language in Ukraine is Ukrainian. So, it sometimes becomes difficult to communicate with the local community.
  • Obtaining Visa From Pakistan: Ukraine has become a gateway to all European countries; that's why a lot of people use Study-Visa just as a tool to get entry into Ukrainian territory. The embassy is well aware of this issue, and they have scrutinized the visa process from Pakistan. Anyhow; for genuine students, we can manage to offer a 100% guaranteed visa with some additional charges.
  • Homesickness: Sometimes students feel homesick. But we will consider this a temporary problem, as with the passage of time students start communicating with local & other foreign students and find good friends.
  • Limited Universities: Unlike Russia, China & other EU countries, Ukraine doesn't have a variety of Universities. As of 2021, there are around 25 Medical Universities in Ukraine.
