Posted on 25thAugust, 2018 Posted By Smita Medhekar

Being Indians, we always have curiosity and attraction about foreign countries. But most of us can not even think about studying abroad, as we feel that it is not our cup of tea. Actually this is not the case and if you consider studying MBBS abroad then in fact, studying MBBS abroad is quite a possible thing than studying MBBS in India. Don’t you believe it?

Yes, this is the reality. To study MBBS course in India a student will have to spend more money than studying MBBS abroad.

Private medical colleges in India have very higher fees than the Government medical colleges in India. But for the students, it is very difficult to secure an admission to a Government medical college. There is a huge competition as the number of institutions and effectively the number of available seats are very less compared to the number of students appearing.

To study MBBS in India a student will need to spend more than Rs.75 lakhs but if a student choose to study MBBS abroad, then he/ she will have to spend between Rs.15 lakhs to Rs.50 lakhs only.

As a result, students prefer private medical colleges. These medical colleges take capitation fees from the students apart from the tuition fees and the tuition fees are also very higher.

Hence, students prefer to study MBBS abroad. Either students can work hard to get an admission into a Government medical college in India or they can pursue MBBS in abroad in the countries which offer it at low cost.

But students would need to choose the right country and the right college.

How to Select the Right Country for Studying MBBS Abroad?

Choosing a right country for your MBBS education abroad is a very important and challenging task. You should consider following things while choosing a country:-

  • 1. You should look for quality education and thus make sure that the medical institution should be approved and recognized by MCI, UNESCO, WHO, IMED and other international boards.
  • 2. The education curriculum of the medical universities should be competent so that you should be able to survive in the outside world.
  • 3. Students generally do not have idea about which country to choose and they just go by the names of the countries like Australia, Canada, USA, UK etc.

Actually these are the best options but these countries have many restrictions for international students to allow them to study medicine. Also the education cost in these countries lies between Rs.1 to 4 crore and thus this can not be a feasible option for them.

By this way, the task of choosing a country will get easier and better for you.
