MBBS stands for Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery, which is an undergraduate degree in the field of medicine.

There are approximately 50,000 MBBS seats available all over in India whereas 10 lakh students appear in various All India and state level entrance tests every year. This means, every year, only 5% of the students aspiring to become a doctor will achieve their goals. There are a total of 335 medical colleges in India out of which 181 are private institutions and 154 are government run institutes. Most of the private institutes have a capitation fee ranging from 15 to 20 lakhs with a yearly fee of 4 to 5 lakhs. For any middle-class family, even if the student secures a seat through entrance tests, MBBS still remains a forbidden fruit due to astronomical fee structure of the private institutes.

Global exposure, world class infrastructure, affordable fee structure, no donation, better ROI, an opportunity to practice in host country are the top pros of studying MBBS overseas.

Certainly yes! Indian laws allows students to pursue medical studies overseas. As every medical student is required to take NExT (National Exit Test) exam to obtain a licence to practice medicine in India. So, worry not! Your abroad degree isn’t going to make you stand still.

  • Student must have qualified NEET exam.
  • Must have Physics Chemistry and Biology in class 12th and have scored an aggregate of 50% or above in boards exam.

Not all but yes a few universities conduct entrance exam prior to admission which isn’t tough to crack so it shouldn’t be stressed.

Definately Yes! Passing score (the score more than the cut-off marks) is required in neet exam only then one can enroll in a medical University abroad.

Indubitably Yes! One can practice medicine in India only after qualifying NExT exam which is conducted for each MBBS student either from India or abroad.

Who wouldn’t love to garner global exposure in the midst of world class infrastructure, that too at cost effective fee. So, yes it is worthy to study MBBS abroad by all means not just for the sake of one’s studies but for personal development as well.
