List of MCI Approved MBBS Universities Abroad

The number of Indian students travelling abroad to pursue medicine has increased exponentially. A limited number of government medical seats and high tuition fees charged by private intuitions in India have pushed a large fraction of MBBS aspirants to pursue medical studies overseas. Countries abroad are providing medical aspirants state-of-the-art universities, low tuition fees, an English environment, and above all a holistic approach to education for the Indian students taking the decision of studying MBBS abroad.

It has come to the notice of the Medical Council of India (MCI) how some agents are providing fabricated, false and misleading information to Indian students who want to pursue medical studies such as MBBS or its equivalent course abroad. To bring an end to such malicious practice the MCI – Medical Council of India has taken out a list of foreign universities/institutions as approved/recognized by the Indian Embassy/High Commission of India concerned in respective countries for the benefit of Indian nationals planning to travel overseas to study MBBS.
