What is the fee to study MBBS in the Philippines?
Studying MBBS is costly but how much? Pursuing MBBS in India costs around Rs. 20-30 Lakh in India if you apply for private colleges. For government institutes, let’s not even talk about it since it is not even worth it at all. In most private colleges under the budget mentioned above, the cost is not worth for the facilities they provide you. The architecture is not very good, the environment is fresh, and professors are not experienced enough.
The research done through various websites using Google suggests that the range may go up to a whopping Rs.70 Lakh if you are thinking about seats in management quota (yes, I am talking about donation). But the question is, is it worth it? Let us tell you that it is NOT. The infrastructure, campus and most importantly lecturers in India are not worth spending so much money for MBBS in India.
Instead, you can apply in one of the finest countries to study MBBS. The country we are suggesting to you is the Philippines (especially for Indians because). In the Philippines, there are amazing universities with well-built architecture, a fresh environment in and around campus (weather is similar to India) and professors are very experienced.
The cost is also not much comparatively. It costs you around Rs. 26-32 Lakh to complete your MBBS in the Philippines. This includes tuition fees, accommodation, food and everything standard you require for 5 years while studying MBBS in the Philippines.
A particular university in the Philippines known as Southwestern University is one worth-every-penny place for students who want to pursue their dream of becoming a doctor. We say this, because of the facilities provided by the university and how well it responds to Indian students who apply for studying medicine.
In the Philippines, you can pay fees in installments, which is a big help for anyone. You do not have to worry about paying huge amounts all at once. The average costing of Universities in the Philippines spread over 5 years of time-lapse is as follows,
