For example, The Belarusian State Medical University is the ranked 1 State Medical University in Belarus and has a global ranking of 745th worldwide.

How to plan your budget for your medical education?

Entry requirements of a university and practising in foreign countries

Entry requirement is important not only when applying for a medical university but also after you complete your medical studies and come back to practise medicine in your chosen destination. Each destination and university have different entry requirements such as 2C’s &1S/D – Belarus, Russia, Armenia, Georgia & China, 3B’s – Malaysia & Latvia (Mathematics is a must for Latvian medical universities) , 3A’s + IELTS + Qualifying Examination – Australia, USA & UK.

For example, in Sri Lanka, according to the Sri Lanka Medical Council (SLMC) the minimum requirement to practise medicine is to obtain 2Cs & 1S/1D (Biology, Chemistry & Physics in one sitting) at your advance level examination. Be mindful of agents and universities that promotes pre-medicine programs among others as non-other than your advance level is a valid entry to practise medicine in Sri Lanka.
