There are many obstacles one may feel when it comes to studying MBBS abroad. Studying MBBS in the Philippines is no different. The good thing is that we have solutions to all those problems and some difficulties are actually not any considerate issue in the country.
The language, food, weather condition, and teaching quality are the priority troubles every student and parent thinks about. The solution to all the problems is either solved by the country itself or by us, Wisdom Overseas. These solutions make studying MBBS in the Philippines better than any other country.
Let us go through the primary problems one by one…
What language do they speak in the Philippines?
Since the Philippines was formerly an American colony, English is the main colloquial language there. 95% of the people in the Philippines speak English. The country ranks in 3rd position in the world as an English speaking nation globally. Students who normally travel to countries other than the Philippines are unable to perform effectively in clinical rotations and internships as part of the course due to language problems.
Patients are unable to read English and are unable to read the case studies written by the nurses in the local language. Patients are able to talk in greater detail about their health conditions. This does not give practitioners a better understanding of the severity of pathogens, diagnosis, and prevention.
Due to no lack of language problems in the Philippines, students studying MBBS in the Philippines do well in their clinical rotations and internships. These stats are proven compared to students who study MBBS abroad in other top countries except for the Philippines.
What do they eat in the Philippines?
Wisdom Overseas, which oversees the problems students face regarding food and accommodation, runs its own hostel on the College campus. This is for the convenience of students and parents. We take chefs to the Philippines from Andhra Pradesh and strive to serve Telugu cuisine for students. Our consultancy solves the food problem faced by students in the past and provide delicious meals to the students.
However, a slight adjustment to the diet is always required. That is because the flavors in the dishes may not satisfy everyone. Some people may not like certain types of vegetables or curries. We take that into account and thus our chefs work hard to cook the kind of food that all students love to eat.
Also, Wisdom maintains a hostel for boys and girls separately. The students who have gone through our institution in the last 6 years have not experienced any embarrassing incidents. We also send spices to the Philippines in cargo from here for Telugu students.
How safe is the Philippines?
The people, in particular, are peacekeepers in the Philippines. The nation has one of the lowest crime rates in the world. We have no filings where they show any racism despite differences in body color either. The crime rate is also very low in the country. So, there are no security concerns for parents and students.
When it comes to students, perhaps they have more security in the Philippines than in our country. Wisdom maintains a hostel specifically for students. There have been no incidents that have bothered our students over the past 7 years while studying MBBS in the Philippines.
Weather conditions in the Philippines?
Since the Philippines is a tropical country like India, the climatic conditions are roughly the same. Summer, monsoon, and winter are just like our country. The most important thing for students to consider is that the average temperature is between 23 and 27 degrees.
In the past, students who have traveled to Russia, China, Ukraine, and Kazakhstan have experienced the most adverse conditions. They have fallen often ill and unable to concentrate on studying. After observing all these conditions we have come to the conclusion that the Philippines is a very favorable country for students.
There are other countries where you can study MBBS abroad but none of them are as suitable for Indians as the Philippines. The weather is pleasant and similar to India, the cost of studying MBBS in the Philippines is also less, Indian food is available, accommodation is provided, and security is also arranged for students. So, why not study MBBS abroad where you can feel safer and enhance your caliber at full capacity. Contact us to join the next batch to study MBBS in the Philippines at SWU, PHINMA.
