Studying MBBS is a dream for most of the students in India. From childhood, parents, teachers and influential people in Indian society recommend studying either engineering or medicine. If there are two children in a household, the chances are one will be an engineer and the other will be a doctor. This is the dream of most of the Indian parents. Although engineering seats have increased drastically over the years, this is not the case with MBBS.
Here 5 of the many advantages for Indian students to study an MBBS abroad.
As informed earlier, private institutes in India have huge amounts of donation or capitation fee, apart from the yearly fee. This is not the case for colleges or universities abroad. Most of the MBBS colleges in China, Russia, Ukraine etc. have no donation or capitation fee. Even the tuition fee is very low in comparison to the Indian private colleges ranging from Rs. 2.5 Lakhs to Rs. 4.5 Lakhs every year.
No Entrance Test for Admission:
Unlike India, there is no entrance test required to secure admission in an MBBS college. Admission will be strictly based on your performance in 12th standard and first-cum-first-serve basis. Students with more than 75% in their 12th standard are given preference.
Extremely Low Cost of Living:
This is the part where most of the students and parents worry and take a back step. Although most of the foreign countries to study MBBS in are from Europe, the living cost is relatively cheap.
World Class Infrastructure:
All the campuses across Russia, Ukraine, China, Philippines have world class structure with modern equipment in hospitals. For instance, MBBS study in Ukraine will be very fruitful as most of the universities in Ukraine are of high standard and globally recognized by WHO, UNESCO, European Council etc.
