MBBS in Kazakhstan

MBBS in Kazakhstan

MBBS in Kazakhstan has been one of the popular options for Indian students. Why? Because the course duration for MBBS from Kazakhstan is just 5 years and the overall budget required to study MBBS in Kazakhstan is very less. It is cheaper to study in Kazakhstan when compared to Ukraine, Bangladesh, the Philippines. Mostly, students from Rajasthan go for MBBS from Kazakhstan. However, we need to look at the quality of education for an Indian student after MBBS from Kazakhstan.

MBBS from Kazakhstan FMGE passing percentage (2015-18) = 10%

At the end of the day, all that matters is whether you have cleared FMGE (now NEXT) or not and Indian students have been passing this exam at a better ratio from countries like Ukraine, the Philippines, Bangladesh than from Kazakhstan.

MBBS in Kazakhstan is a good option for MBBS abroad at low cost and less duration.

We would recommend MBBS in Ukraine, Russia or Bangladesh rather than MBBS in Kazakhstan as the FMGE passing percentage is higher in other countries.

MBBS in Kazakhstan duration = 5 years
