Q:   Can I join RUHS - Rajasthan University of Health Sciences directly?


Sorry, but RUHS (Rajasthan University of Health Sciences) does not accept direct enrollment. Being an affiliated university, RUHS does not directly handle admissions.
You must take national level entrance exams such as NEET, JEE Mains, RPMT, etc. in order to be considered for admission to undergraduate programs in medicine, dentistry, biology, pharmacy, BHMS, nursing, and other fields.
You can take part in the counseling and seat assignment process to be admitted to one of the colleges affiliated with RUHS based on your exam results.To be assigned to RUHS institutes for postgraduate medical programs such as the MD/MS, candidates must pass the NEET PG exam and then undergo state-level counseling.
Some institutions hold their own entrance exams for MPH, MHA, and other master's programs, while others take into account standard exams like RPMT PG.
