Bangladesh as a preferred destination for MBBS in abroad

MBBS is one of the top career choices for students in India. Thousands and thousands of students apply for NEET exam every year to get admission into good and top class medical colleges to pursue MBBS. There is also a rising trend of students going to abroad for pursuing medical education and then practice in their own country. Even the Indian students sign up to different universities around the globe every year for this. However, one of the prominent issue that both the students and the parents face is of choosing the right college or right university and in case of abroad the right country for the MBBS education. Second, the budget issue is also there in case of middle class families. For the right college and right education, Bangladesh is a preferred destination for the Indian students, especially for education in medical field. With the 25 public universities and 50 private universities for medical education, MBBS in Bangladesh is a good choice for Indian students. It is one of the low-cost MBBS programs among foreign countries for Indian citizens. The environment and the geography itself is quite familiar to India, therefore the students won't even have to take much time to settle as well. Looking at the fees structure, the public and private universities both offer education at an affordable rate for the Indian students. The medium of education is in English, so the language barrier is not a problem at all. The universities are established in top cities of Bangladesh with good market places like Mirpur, Dhaka, Rajshahi, Chittagong etc., so the students will be living in the city itself. The cost of living in Bangladesh is even cheaper in comparison to the Indian cities due to the high value of Indian currency. The students get the same kind of exposure in cities as India. Quality of medical education in Bangladesh same as India. The same MBBS program is followed in Bangladesh as India. Even the course material provided in universities are same books of Indian authors only. Even the passport and visa for the students are easily available. The requirements of pursuing MBBS in Bangladesh is quite simple - 10+2 in Science (Physics, Chemistry and Biology), with basic qualification in NEET as NEET is the compulsory criteria for MBBS in India, the same is applied for Bangladesh as well.

If the students belonging to SAARC nation, then the students don't have to pay any tuition fee for medicine course in Bangladesh, hence they have to pay only for living cost. The universities are MCI and WHO recognized, therefore the students have the opportunity to work in India after the completion of the course.
