Students moving abroad from India to study medicine has become more common nowadays and it should not be mistaken that India lacks quality education in the field of medicine. In fact, India houses some of the best universities in the world.

The reason behind the increase in the number of students heading abroad to study medicine are quite abundant. A recent report by “The Hindustan Times” stated that the number of students wishing & applying to pursue medical courses abroad is quite high and is continuously on the rise.

Since 2014 January, students who wish to study abroad should obtain an eligibility certificate. It should be taken into note that the Medical Council of India (MCI) has issued an increased number of eligibility certificates (3,386) in 2018 when compared to 2017 which is actually a 24 per cent rise.

The increased studying cost in private colleges and the competition to pursue studies in government colleges are some of the reasons for students to opt to study abroad. Another important reason is the growing number of IB schools where students cannot take more than two science subjects. In order to take the third subject, students should obtain special permission which is, of course, a time consuming & an uncertain process, making study abroad an easier option for students and not to mention the abundant benefits & knowledge a student gets when he/she studies abroad.
