Generally, it is the best decision to study MBBS abroad. There are many colleges and universities in India but the number of medical aspirants exceeds the number of available seats. Studying MBBS is no joke and it is career students take up for life unlike other streams like engineering or management. So, if you want to learn medicine then better study MBBS from abroad rather than in India.
You might be now thinking of studying MBBS in some private colleges. But the truth of those private institutes is no infrastructure, proper faculties. The donation rate in MBBS colleges in India is high. So, instead of doing MBBS in India why not study MBBS abroad where there is no donation, better faculty assistance and good infrastructure with practical learning.
Now, before you make a decision for studying MBBS abroad, there are basically 3 ideal points to be considered
The best country that comes under anyone’s budget for studying MBBS abroad is the Philippines. Studying MBBS in the Philippines is very affordable as there is no donation. Also, the economy of the country is similar to India so no problem there either. The professors are of high quality with good campus infrastructure.
You will get everything under your minimal budget. The donation you may have to pay at a private college in India is equivalent to your total budget of learning MBBS in the Philippines. In simple words, Maximum learning at a minimal cost for studying MBBS abroad. This gives the country an edge against all other countries.
By this, we mean the time-period of learning MBBS. For example, In the Philippines, the duration is 5 (1+3+1) years. This time is divided into Basic sciences, MD and internship respectively. This gives the MBBS students an edge compared to other countries and their universities. Usually, it takes 6 years or more to complete the course but not if you are studying MBBS in the Philippines.
You can also prepare for USMLE if you want to practice medicine in the USA for a few years or settle down ( the choice is up to you). Consultancies such as Wisdom Overseas (one of the best in India) provide facilities for higher education after undergraduate and USMLE preparations. So, it is an extra benefit as you do not have to waste one year for completing MBBS, preparing for USMLE or higher education.
Living standards of the Country
Along with the budget and quality of medical education, it is important to check the living standards of the country you are choosing for studying MBBS abroad. For example, the accommodation, food, language that local folks speak, safety and security. All these can also be taken care of by a consultancy. At Wisdom OVerseas, we make sure that students concentrate only on their studies while we provide them Indian food, separate hostel, security, study materials and more.
Make sure that the country is prone to natural calamities such as earthquakes, Tsunamis, and other natural hazards. The infrastructure of the campus and environment is another factor to be looked into before flying off to study MBBS abroad.
If you are tight in budget then opt for studying MBBS in the Philippines. Otherwise, you can also go to other countries. But, our suggestion is why to spend more money than you have to for studying MBBS abroad. You will spend more and get the same quality as the Philippines which is why we suggest you opt the Philippines for studying MBBS
Universities in the Philippines
There is just one university you need to know about the Philippines that is at number 3 position- Southwestern University. Now, before you reject it because it is number 3, let us tell you more about it and why it is best for studying MBBS abroad.
Southwestern University is recognized by the MCI (Medical Council of India) and the WHO (World Health Organisation). Not many abroad universities are recognized by these two which is an advantage for Indians when they come back to India after completing their MBBS course abroad.

At southwestern University, all professors speak English and the subjects are taught in the same language too. Also, there are 4,500 beds at their hospital which means more exposure.
