Indians pursue MBBS from an abroad University

Why should Indians pursue MBBS from an abroad University

One question whose answer every student had to find out once he or she has given their NEET exam is from which college/University should they pursue their MBBS course. The main aim is to get admission into any prime medical institution. The percentage of getting into these prestigious colleges is very slim for most of the students.

The rest which goes for private institutes is the matter of high donation requirement by these colleges for admission. It is not worthy for any student as the guarantee of quality education is not there.

In such cases, one can go for an international university where there is a guarantee of a quality education system along with a low fee structure of the MBBS course.

It may sound ironic but yes it is true the fee structure can be less than any private Indian MBBS university like if you study MBBS in China, many universities offer low fee structure for students as most the university there are government-funded and their prime aim is to produce highly-educated doctors. Therefore the fee system is less compared to Indian colleges. 

After the completion of the course from the foreign university, the students need to give MCI screening test in order to practice medicine in India which includes a 1-year internship in India.

Advantages of Studying Abroad

The cost of doing MBBS abroad is very affordable and sometimes is less as compared to any private university of India providing MBBS. The cost is around 15 to 25 lacs depending upon the university and it may go further if you are applying for western countries.

No donations are required for MCI approved universities. NEET exam qualification is required for getting a seat in the top universities of MBBS.

The better education system and accommodation for students

World-class infrastructure with all the latest technology in the medical field.

If you are going to another country’s university it is not necessary to learn the native language because there are MCI approved universities that offer only English taught programs.
