Hello, My name is Farah Shuhada, Malaysian student currently studying for a Medical Degree in Moscow, Russia at the Sechenov University and I am currently struggling in my final year due to some financial problems. I used to study under my local government funding program that has been supporting me in my previous years, but due to unforeseen circumstances with the university, I was suspended from education and I lost the financial support that was given to me. Ever since then, my parents have been trying their best to support me. This is difficult for them because I have a big family, a total of 9 siblings, and living expenses in Moscow is quite high for a student who has no financial backup.
I have a few more months left to graduate, and currently I am stuck with tuition fees and because of that I have penalties (due to late payment of fees). This affects me as I am unable to sit for any current and upcoming exams unless I can clear all debts I have with the University. If I am unable to sit for the State Exams this year, I worry that I will be penalised into repeating the course in which I will have to pay another full amount of a year of education plus another year of living expenses in this country which I am not willing to. Please do help me to finally graduate and become a good doctor. Your contribution will be very much appreciated!!
