Those who could not get the admission to the low cost Indian government medical colleges through the entrance test such as AIPMT, MH-CET, EAMCET, GUJCET etc. look for their next option. Generally the MBBS in India especially in private medical colleges which are owned by the Indian politicians is very expensive. The main reason is the donation or the capitation fees to get the admission in Indian private medical colleges. On average, the fees for MBBS in Indian private medical colleges is around Rs. 9 Lacs per year on average as against around Rs. 3.0 Lacs in Russia and China.
All the universities based in Russia offering MD program and for MBBS in China on the list of Medical Council of India (MCI) are local / federal / national government universities in those countries. The universities are already subsidized by their government just like an Indian government university / medical college.
The MBBS in Russia and China costs us lower due to this reason. However, one must be very careful to also check the grade of the university allotted by WHO in order to ensure the quality of education, infrastructure available, English proficiency of the teachers in that university, library size, Student to Faculty ratio, roadmap to PG in medical science for specialization, years of teaching experience in local language as well as in English and many other factors leading to the higher grade.
Even among the universities offering MBBS in China or MBBS in Russia, there is a gap in the fees charged to the students. This is due to lower grade university would cost you approximately 2 Lacs while higher graded universities would cost you around Rs. 4.50 Lacs per year of tuition fees such as in Piragov Russia NRM in Moscow to study MBBS in China or Russia.
There are of course few exceptions that offer higher quality education with B+ grades at lower fees such as Jilin University for MBBS in China wherein B+ graded university offering 5 years program costs the Indian students only Rs. 2.90 Lacs while it is considered to be ion top 10 in China. Even in Russia, you have an option such as Ryazan Medical University falling into this special category. You can apply simply On-Line by paying only the application fees to these universities based on the eligibility criteria.
We take an important last point to complete this answer. It is not only the cost of tuition fees but also the hostel cost, living cost and other costs (Text Books, Insurance, Resident permit extensions etc.) which needs to be taken into account while calculating the total cost of study MBBS abroad. You can go through these costs very easily and clearly without any hidden ones at Moksh Overseas Education Consultants.
