  5. Though the climate in the Crimea is considered mild and the warmest in Ukraine, the end of autumn and winter might be cold (with the temperature less than -100С). So you’d better prepare warm shoes, socks, jacket and cap in advance in case of cold spell!
  6. The foreign students coming for studies are to be registered in the Department of Registration. There is a passport-visa department at the University, which helps students to pass a registration and follows their dwelling while in Ukraine. The overwhelming majority of students live in the CSMU hostels situated on the territory of the campus. At the same time some students are allowed to rent a flat (as an exception) if there is an official agreement between a student and a landlord.
  7. The fees are paid for one academic year before the beginning of classes.
  8. Before the beginning of classes all the students are examined by the specialists of the CSMU clinic. Good health of the entrants should be proved by the medical certificate received in the homeland. Nevertheless, according to the Legislation of Ukraine, all the students must buy an insurance policy for acute diseases or traumas. Outpatient examination and treatment of foreign students are carried out in the modern and well-equipped clinic of CSMU.
  9. For the convenience of students, all the necessary facilities (a bank, an insurance agent, a passport-visa service, a university clinic, etc.) are situated close to the University.
  10. Though the Autonomous Republic of the Crimea is considered a relatively calm and peaceful region, it is better not to leave the territory of the campus at night. There are all the necessary services on the territory of the campus (banks, cafes, restaurants, telephones, Internet, a laundry, etc.). The campus and the hostels are constantly guarded by 35 officers of the University security service. Besides, there are special staff members of the Dean’s office of the International Medical Faculty whose task is to assist foreign students in adaptation under new conditions and to help them in any possible way.
