- No Donation or Capitation Fee
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. Take Ukraine for example. Studying MBBS in Ukraine for Indian students will be quite cheap as most of the students can survive with as low as $100 and $200 per month. Even when studying in Asian countries like China, living cost will be as low as Rs. 7000 to Rs. 14,000 per month. Obviously, this also largely depends on student’s lifestyle.
- World Class Infrastructure
All the campuses across Russia, China, Ukraine and Georgia have world class structure with modern equipment in hospitals. For instance, MBBS from 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.
- International Exposure
As students will aspire to study in a foreign country and get to meet fellow students who are also from different countries, backgrounds and ethnicity, students will get international exposure which will greatly help them in settling down. Countries like China also have huge population which provides a great opportunity for medical students to get exposed to large patient inflow.
