Studying MBBS abroad is the first step towards your dream to complete MBBS and become a doctor. So, make sure when you decide to take the step which will change your life forever, choose the right university for studying MBBS abroad. The question about studying MBBS abroad is which institute to choose and what the cost of studying MBBS abroad is.
In Asia, there are many countries that offer you impeccable MBBS courses but the fee structure is at the same level- high. There are some universities that are affordable but education is of low quality. Want to study MBBS from the best university at an affordable cost?
We got a list of top universities in Asia where you can study MBBS
(The universities are chosen from various ranking websites such as Times Higher Education, Career Addict and more)
Nanyang Technological University
The university is at number 1 in Singapore by climbing on the prestigious and older universities like National University of Singapore. Nanyang Technological University is not only ranked 1st in Singapore but in Asia. Also, it tops QS Top 50 under 50 which is a ranking of the top universities in the world under 50 years old.
The campus of Nanyang Technological University has the largest university campus in Singapore, at 200 hectares. Though NTU is a young university as it was established in 1991, it is the best in Singapore and at 34th position in the world.
The infrastructure with a campus of 200 hectares has got to be beautiful, obviously. The professors are experienced which can be seen in their passing rate being the number 1 university in Singapore.
One of the best universities in the world can be found in China and Fudan University is one such institute. It is a public institution that was founded in 1905 located in Shanghai. Presently, there are more than 30,000 students enrolled across all the academics. About 15% of these 30,000 students are international.
The primary language and mode of communication at this institution is Chinese. Some of the programs are also taught in English including MBBS which makes it a good place to study MBBS abroad. The cost of Fudan University to study MBBS is also nominal but accommodation and food choices are not much suitable for Indian students.
Southwestern University, PHINMA
After studying various universities in Asia and all over the world, Southwestern University is our personal favorite. The university is at number 3 in the Philippines, situated in Cebu City. We call it our personal favorite from the POV of Indian students. Also, the university is recognized by the MCI & the WHO.
As Indians, we live in tropical temperature and the Philippines has the same climate. The primary language is English so you do not have to learn the additional language to survive. The professors are experienced and they believe in practical learning more than theory classes (an obvious plus for Indians as we do not like theory classes and learn fast with practical experiences).
There are about 4,500 beds in the Hospital of Southwestern University which supports their belief in practical learning. Also, you contact Wisdom Overseas and find more facilities such as separate hostel and Indian food on-campus. This will help you focus more and do not have to worry about anything except studying MBBS in the Philippines.
Another Chinese University that is in the top 5 of all the universities in China is known for its beautiful architecture nationwide. The university has more than 1,500 international students and is located in central China, Wuhan.
The city of Wuhan has many historical places to visit for a one-day outing and also getaways for weekends too. The campus is beautiful as it is in the heart of the city. The city is rapidly growing because of its commercial and industrial expansions.
Asian Medical Institute
You will be surprised to see this but Asian Medical Institute is one of the top colleges to study MBBS abroad for Indian students. It is located in Kant, Kyrgyzstan. It offers medical courses at a low cost.
The university is approved by the MCI which is a plus for Indian students. There are only 5 university approvals by the MCI in Kyrgyzstan and Asian Medical Institute tops that list. They teach students only in English and faculties are also hired on the basis only.
Capital Medical University
This university was formerly known as Beijing Second Medical College and is located in Beijing, China. It now goes by the name CMU and is one of the top municipal universities in China.
They have more than 9,000 students enrolled with them with English as their primary language to teach. This can be a big help for students as the university is located in China where education is of good quality. The cost of MBBS is moderate in Beijing but you cannot be sure about living expenses and again the food may not suit every Indian.
Seoul National University
This university is a national research university in the city- Seoul, South Korea. It is considered to be one of the top universities to study MBBS in the country. Not all the courses are taught in English but major courses such as Engineering and MBBS are tough in English. This is a worrying aspect for Indians as students may have to learn an additional language to survive.
The Chinese University of Hong Kong
This institute is a public research university situated in Shatin, Hong Kong. The Chinese University of Hong Kong was established by the Legislative Council of Hong Kong. It is one of the most prestigious and international universities in Asia.
The official languages spoken in Hong Kong are Chinese and English. The positive to this is that courses are taught in English. The negative point is that the local folks speak more Chinese than English. So, if you visit The Chinese University of Hong Kong then you will learn MBBS in English but to survive there for 5 years you will have to learn Chinese.
Another Chinese university makes it into our list and it’s Peking University from the capital of China, Beijing. The university is a member of the elite C9 League of Chinese Universities. This makes it one of the best universities in China. The university is also called Beijing University (so do not get confused).
The total number of enrollment in the university is 35,000. The university is famous for its research on the basic sciences. This university is in the top spot when it comes to owning the biggest Library at a university in China with about 5 million books.
National University of Singapore
The first autonomous university in the country of Singapore, the National University of Singapore is preferred by many students to study MBBS abroad. It is considered to be one of the best universities in Singapore and also in the world being in the top 5 and top 30 respectively.
Their courses are divided into three campuses- Kent Ridge, Outram, and Bukit Timah. There are a total of more than 38,000 students in this university from over 100 countries.
