Study of Foreign Students’ Attitude toward Learning in Ivano-Frankivsk National Medical University
The research is devoted to the study of some social and economic characteristics of 166 fifth-year students of the specialty “General Medicine” studying at Ivano-Frankivsk National Medical University and arrived from 15 countries. It was established that the main reasons for choosing IFNMU for training were its relatively low tuition and positive recommendations given by other students and graduates. It was shown that foreign students studying at IFNMU are proud of their choice of higher medical educational institution. They are characterized by high levels of motivation to learning, academic performance and discipline. Revealed significant differences in attitudes to learning depending of region of origin should be considered when forming groups and organization of training, educational work and leisure activities.
