Advantages/Disadvantages of Studying MBBS Abroad in China, Russia and Philippines

The main advantages of studying MBBS in china is the cost. The fees in China ranges from 10 Lakhs to 30 lakhs. Two of the biggest problems faced by Indian students who study MBBS In China is the language of teaching and the medical subject being taught. Only few Chinese medical universities provide English Medicine Course like that of MBBS(Fees for these medical universities are around 25 lakhs). These English medium medical courses has very few seats for Indian students. These medical seats are booked in the month of March itself. Yes... you heard it right...That is before the student appear for NEET exam. If you have crossed the March month, you are not going to get a seat in these top notch medical universities from China. Most of the Chinese universities where our Indian students get admission are teaching Chinese medicine(not English Medical course) which is not relevant when they return to India for practice. Because of this, Indian students who study medicine in china struggle to clear the FMGE screening test exam conducted by Medical Council of India.

Students who study MBBS in Russia need to manage the extreme weather conditions in Russia. More importantly the diseases which they learn in cold climatic country like Russia is completely irrelevant in Indian context. The percentage of students who clear the FMGE(medical screening test) from these two countries Russia and China range between 15-20%. But in case of Philippines medical universities, the passing percentage for FMGE ranges between 30 to 40%.

Philippines, being the third largest country in the world speaking English, conducts their Medical Course fully in English. Apart from medium of instruction, it helps the students to effectively interact with patients during the clinical practice. Because of these advantages of studrying MBBS In Philippines, lot of fraud admission agents are trying to capitalize and cheat the students/parents.
