Pursue MBBS in Malaysia

Eligibility: To be eligible for pursuing MBBS in Malaysia, interested candidates must have passed their class 12 examinations with a minimum of 50% in Physics, Chemistry, and Biology. They are also required to have cleared the NEET exam, with Physics, Chemistry, and Biology as their principal subjects in class 12. Proficiency in English is a mandatory requirement for students.

Course Structure : The MBBS program in Malaysia is a six-year course that includes a one-year internship at renowned hospitals. During the five years of academic study, students receive comprehensive theoretical and practical knowledge. However, it is important for students to note that the program duration may vary among different colleges, and it is advisable to check the specific course structure of each institution.

Due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, the National Medical Commission (NMC) in India made it mandatory for foreign medical graduates who completed their fourth and fifth years online to complete a two-year internship instead of one after obtaining their MBBS degree. The Supreme Court, in March, urged the Central Government to assist these foreign medical graduates in resolving their situation.

Admission Process: The admission process for MBBS in Malaysia involves selecting a college and filling out its application form. Candidates are required to upload necessary documents and save the offer letter for future reference. Once the offer letter is received, the required fees must be paid. Finally, students need to apply for a study visa to pursue their education in Malaysia.

Document Required: The documents typically required for admission include a copy of the Passport, copies of mark sheets and passing certificates of class 10 and 12, migration certificate, copy of the offer letter, and any other documents specified by the foreign ministry of the Government of Malaysia.

Tuition Fees: The tuition fees for MBBS in Malaysia range from approximately Rs 9 lakh to Rs 25 lakh per year, and the cost of living in Malaysia is comparable to that in India, ranging from Rs 15,000 to Rs 18,000 per month. The cost may vary depending on factors such as accommodation in university dormitories and room-sharing arrangements.

Medium of Teaching: Despite Malay being the official language of Malaysia, the medium of instruction for MBBS in Malaysia is English. This provides an advantage for Indian students as they can comfortably pursue their studies in English.
