Fees form a major part of the expenses one has to bear when it comes to studying MBBS in abroad. However, one should see this as an investment in their future. If you are looking for a college with very low fees, below ₹10 Lakh, then the Philippines is not for you as such colleges do not provide good quality education and have poor infrastructure. The student will have to make lots of compromises, such as learning a new language, adjusting to extreme climatic conditions, get a poor or average education, no practical exposure, no Indian food, etc. Therefore, selecting a college with very low fees might seem fancy at first but is filled with many disadvantages.
