Manipal welcomes Indian MBBS aspirants to its Malaysia campus

Medicine is one of the most sought-after profession in the world and particularly in India. This year, a record 16.14 lakh candidates had registered for the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) - that's more than 19 candidates competing for one MBBS seat. The competition keeps getting arduous each year as lakhs of students apply for a limited number of seats, which is why many choose to study medicine in premier universities abroad that are recognized by global health bodies like WHO, International Medical Education Directory (IMED) of the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) etc. While many universities offer MBBS and other medical courses, students prefer universities that are globally recognized and trusted.
