The important reason why students like to go abroad for studying medicine is lesser fees. The students who have not got seat in the government medical college , to avoid higher fees charged in this country, for completing the bachelor’s degree they are preferring to go to Russia, China and Georgia like countries.
In some private medical colleges in India, till 1 crore is charged. Moreover the students are not able to clear the entrance examination through which medical college seat will be available. So the only conclusion for them is foreign clinical course. In Hungary, Poland, Russia, Zimbabwe like countries the cost of studies will end up within Rs. 20 lakhs.

Fake consultants

According to the foreign medical colleges , there is no demand for the fake consultants. They may put you anywhere for money. In some countries, there will be 3 medical colleges in one campus. so being precautious is your responsibility.
