Anytime a student wishes to pursue MBBS, the very next question that comes in the mind is from where
to pursue this course. Going abroad to study MBBS is one option Indian Students are increasingly
thinking about. When talked about the countries to pursue this course, countries like Ukraine, US, UK,
Russia and China are what students think about the most. Out of all the countries, students prefer a
country that has affordable tuition fees and a proper accommodation facility during the study period.
If we focus on Ukraine a little more, Ukraine is now becoming the first and topmost education
destination for the Indian students. Medicine studies in Ukraine is cheaper as compared to other
countries especially India. Doing medical studies from India is not easy as there are very limited seats in
the government universities and private universities are very costly.
As far as the Ukranian degrees are concerned, they are ecognized by WHO and UNESCO and once
students graduate, they have an option to return back to their country or settle at any place in abroad
considering the fact that the degree they hold is internationally accepted.
The major confusion for Indian students when opting MBBS in abroad is the syllabus part. They are
confused as to what and how they will be taught. But the syllabus for MBBS in Ukraine is WHO approved
