  • Location of university
  • Establishment year of university
  • Number of foreign students enrolled in university

  • Number of hospitals associated with university for clinical classes
  • Additional facility of MCI training & preparation
  • Availability of guest lecturers from India
  • Use of modern & digital technology in teaching
  • Opportunity to participate in exchange programs with other countries


These above factors are not the only ones that are taken into consideration while deciding fees. There are some medical colleges in China that have very good infrastructure and facilities, but offer MBBS course in low fees as a step to attract more international students and stay in competition with other universities.
