Best College for MBBS in Abroad


This is Shobhit Jayaswal from Global Medical Foundation. I will try to answer this very important question, a question that everyone has but no one gets a satisfactory answer to.

Well, there is no one right answer to this question and if you ask this question to someone else (like a consultancy) they will give you a very biased answer to this question. I will give you an unbiased answer based on what I have seen during my visits to various universities in various countries.

Assumptions: I assume that you are an Indian student who is looking for the best option for studying MBBS abroad. Also, I assume that you have qualified NEET and you have a budget of around ₹20–30 lakh at least.

My criteria for calling a university as best:

Now, I will say which universities are the best in their respective countries according to me. These are my opinions as I have been to each of these countries and visited these universities. Therefore, these universities are best according to my criteria which are-

1) safety and security of the students
2) FMGE passing percentage
3) facilities provided by the university/college to Indian students
4) quality of education
5) hostel and food facility available to the Indian students
6) number of batches on Indian students passed out from the university

I have selected and not selected universities based on the criteria above and I believe that you are also searching the best university for you based on these criteria.

Countries and best universities/colleges/institutes:

  • Ukraine:

The best university according to me in Ukraine is-

Vinnitsa National Medical University:

I would say that for an Indian student, Vinnitsa National Medical University or National Pirogov Memorial Medical University is the best. This is my own opinion and I am sure there will be many who will say some other university is better and there will be many with a third opinion.
