MBBS in Philippines is getting popular among Indian students who do not wish to study an additional language such as required in MCI recognized medical colleges or universities in China or European countries like Russia. This is due to the fact that, Philippines is an English speaking country. More than 95% of the people speaks English language. MBBS in Philippines review also became popular because the medical seats in China get generally filled up by June end. The various universities in Philippines are now recognised by MCI. Hence, the Indian students have started going to University of Perpetual Help, Bicol Medical college, Angeles Medical University etc. is among one of the top medical universities in Philippines.MBBS Philippines India is also a good option.Philippines medical college fees would range anywhere between 11-18 lakh. The cheapest medical school in the Philippines would cost even lesser. Thus, even though the cost of medical school in the Philippines is less, the quality of education they offer is also very less compared to other MCI recognized medical colleges abroad.
The disadvantages of studying MBBS in Philippines are present. However, Studying MD / MBBS in Philippines has advantages such as good weather and low cost medical colleges for Indian students. Hence, it became a great option for students who want to pursue their MBBS abroad. However, there is a catch which generally all the consultants avoid telling you. But we at STEPS do not wish to hide these facts. The admission will not be directly in MD program. The quality of medical education in the Philippines is different for different medical universities Philippines. Philippines medical educationprocess is not as easy as it seems. Moreover, MBBS Philippines fees is not much. MBBS in Philippines for Nepali students is also an option.MBBS in Ukraine fees would be more but the quality would be much higher too.
Note: MD degree is equivalent to Bachelor level. Please do not mix it with the PG in India which many education consultants in India would advise. Just taking admission to BS program does not entitle you to become a doctor. It is just an entry to Pre Medical program leading to BS!

DISADVANTAGES OF STUDYING MBBS IN PHILIPPINES.
Passing NMAT Exam before guaranteeing Medical Seat for MD / MBBS in Philippines.
First and the biggest problem with studying medicine in the Philippines for Indian students is that they are first put in Pre-medical program such as B.S (Psychology) or B.S (Biology). Further the students have to pass an exam namely NMAT to get the promotion to study medicine in the Philippines for internationals. The system followed by almost all theWHO approved medical colleges in the Philippines does not suit around 30% of the students and the consultants just do not say it clearly to the Indian students who look to study at the topMCI approved medical colleges in the Philippines. Further, not every student who passed NMAT can get the seat in MD in the same medical college! Philippines MBBS syllabus is also much different compared to other countries. The requirements for medical school in Philippines is also different.
These students return back due to non-passing of the NMAT exam or for not getting through MD Philippines seat. Imagine the problem they would face back at home when they are suddenly told that you would not become a doctor!
