Top and Reasonable Medical Colleges/Universities in Abroad for Indian Students

Over 25 lakh aspiring MBBS students have applied for NEET UG in 2024, marking a substantial increase of 3.95 lakh aspirants compared to the previous year’s figure according to several media reports.

With 695 medical schools offering admission to only 106,333 medical seats in India, a majority of medical aspirants are not able to secure seats in medical schools abroad, so they try for private medical schools where the fees are exorbitantly high, and the infrastructure is also not at par. So, for these two main reasons, studying MBBS abroad has become an attractive option compared to studying in private colleges in India which steeps 50-70 lakh, sometimes 1 Cr INR for MBBS.

Nowadays a quarter of students, approximately 20,000-25,000 opt to go abroad to study medicine each year, and the most sought-after choices are Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Georgia, and MBBS in Russia. Studying medicine in these countries is not only affordable but also follows an easy admission process, which has exponentially increased the inflow of Indian medical aspirants.

One of the reasons that the cost of MBBS in Russia, Kyrgyzstan, Georgia, or Kazakhstan is so low is that the Ministry of Health and Education in these countries has worked tirelessly to ensure that the cost of medical education is heavily subsidized. In comparison to Western medical schools, the total cost of studying MBBS from some of the top medical schools abroad, such as Bashkir State Medical University, Kabardino Balkarian State University, University of Georgia Tbilisi, or a leading school like Yaroslav the Wise Novgorod State University, is significantly lower. What Makes Russia, Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, And Kazakhstan The Most Sought-after For MBBS?
