  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.

Independent Educational Consultants are professionals who assist students and families with educational decision making. Educational consultants 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. A consultant does not accept any compensation from educational institutions for placement of a child.

Consultants provide experience, knowledge and objectivity to help formulate a placement decision during a time that is confusing and stressful for any parent. Since educational consultants have extensive personal knowledge of a wide variety of schools and programs, they know the important criteria and common mistakes to avoid when making recommendations for placement. Consultants utilize this knowledge and experience when helping parents to carefully develop a strategy to intervene with their struggling child.

Special Purpose schools and programs are very expensive. An educational consultant who is 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 child. Parents who work with qualified educational consultants thus reduce the possibility of losing time and money as a result of an inappropriate placement.
