About Us For Indian Students

1. In Tajikistan presently over 650 Indian students are undergoing MBBS course. They study in the Avicenna State Medical University located in Dushanbe.  The university admits Indian students since the time of Soviet Union.

 2. The course is for 5 academic years and as per the university’s information Russian or Tajik language is not compulsory because classes are given in English language for Indian students. Students have often talked about difficulties due to language.


 3. All students themselves pay fees and expenses for their travel and study in Dushanbe.  There is no scheme of scholarship at present either from the Government of India or from the Government of Tajikistan.  It has been Embassy’s experience that almost all students contacted the university through private agents based in India with their offices in Central Asian Republics.  Embassy’s estimate is that students spend over Rs. 35 lakh in the 5 year course.  However, actual duration of course and expenses may vary and must be verified with the university and agent before taking a decision.  Embassy has no role in admission and study in Dushanbe.  Embassy keeps contact with university authorities to ensure students’ welfare.  However, very few students register their names and contact details with the Embassy and are forthcoming in keeping in touch with the Embassy.


 4. According to the informal feedback from professional Indian doctors who know about the university, the level of most Indian medical universities is better than that of university in Dushanbe.  In the last few years, most but not all of passing out Indian students from Tajikistan were successful in the examination conducted by the Medical Council of India (MCI) for students who have done MBBS in foreign universities.  Contact details of the State Medical University are the following:
