As education consultants at Just For Education , when we talk to aspiring candidates for MBBS in Philippines there are several questions that come up in the discussion. Nevertheless, two major concerns rule; these concerns are about overall culture of the place and quality of education. Hence we thought of addressing these two first in this article.

There are several pros and corns on selecting a country for overseas studies. All-time favourite option for any Indian student to study MBBS would be in their home country India. However, when the competition is so fierce and one has to achieve a higher NEET score for admission in a government medical college, you have to explore options for studying abroad and Philippines is the first on that long list.

The Philippines is popular for medical education due to the high quality of education, there are several medical colleges which are regulated by the CHED (Commission on Higher Education) and follows US education system throughout the course that is carefully developed by keeping in mind the core development of each student incorporating knowledge from theories, practical technology, research videos, seminars and much more. The highly competitive environment of MBBS colleges in Philippines has made each university to augment the quality of education, facilities and all other needs of the Students. It is highly likely that the local culture will play an important role for an international student. This could be the first time that this student will be existing alone and away from his/her parents, family, friends and country. This young adult is going to mature around this culture, he/she will be more sense of the world around this culture, he/she will remember this culture as part of the initial years that are about to shape his/her life. . Luckily Philippines and India have some distinct commonalities and less differences in their geographic characteristics, livelihood, food, language, literature, arts and clothing.

For instance, it is a common sight to see parents and extended families staying in one house similar to India’s joint family culture. Filipinos respect and cherish their elders, and that shows in many ways in everyday life. For instance, seniors are addressed as “po” after please, thank you, and other exchanges, with the younger person taking the elder’s hand and touching it to their forehead in a charming display of reverence called “mano.”Elderly, disabled, and pregnant women even have their separate queue at banks, restaurants and taxi queues, allowing them to bypass the crowd. However, their politeness can go a little too far, as you’ll rarely hear a Filipino come out with a direct “no” answer when you ask them a question, a trait that can create many challenging and hilarious situations for a tourist or international student.

Filipinos are warm, happy, and have a great sense of humour. According to Gallup’s index, the Philippines ranked towards the top as one of the happiest countries in the world. Filipinos also have an uproarious sense of humour, joking and singing is part of their lives, similar to India. Life in the Philippines is all about smiling, laughing and enjoying every moment with those around you!

Filipinos are crazy about basketball. You’ll see makeshift hoops erected on every street corner, young men commonly wearing NBA jerseys, and local teams playing in every community hall. The Philippines Basketball Association (PBS) is the first and oldest league in Asia and the second oldest in the world after the United States’ National Basketball Association (NBA).

Filipinos love their shopping malls. In fact, they serve as community hubs since they’re clean, safe, and, most importantly, air-conditioned. Aside from the usual stores they also have countless food venues, gyms, grocery stores, banks, health clinics, nightclubs, parks, concert amphitheatres, and even churches inside their malls. In fact, the Philippines is home to three of the ten largest shopping malls in the world, The Mega Fashion Hall of SM Megamall (third-largest in the world, encompassing 5,451,220 sq ft), SM City North EDSA (fourth largest) and SM Mall of Asia (tenth largest).

Politeness is an art form in the Philippines. Most foreigners will be referred to as “sir” and “mam” no matter their age. You’ll see younger people refer to the women and men a little bit older as “ates” and “kuyas” (sort of like older sister or brother, respectively).

Christianity is the biggest observed religion in Philippines, which makes it the only majority Christian nation in Asia. Eighty percent of its population identifies as Roman Catholic. The Philippines has a population of more than 100 million people, which makes it the 12th most populous country in the world.

Over 11 million Filipinos work overseas, which constitutes about 11% of the entire population of the Philippines. Filipinos are the second-largest Asian-American group in the United States, next to the Chinese. The Philippines is the world’s largest supplier of nurses, about 25% of the world’s nurses originally come from Philippines.

Originally Philippines was once considered as a small player in the race for international students, but in recent times it is one of the most favourite and favourable education destination. Its geographic location, educational opportunities, affordability, climate and culture makes it a very appealing as an international study destination. The Philippines is not simply a country of mass-emigration, but it also attracts many migrants to study, invest and live in the country, and the government continues to search for new and innovative ways to invest in the migration of people around the world, increasing the popularity and economy of the country. Attracting International students is certainly a win -win situation for both parties.

Philippines continues to be an attractive destination for Indian students wishing to pursue medical education for past few years. Other than its affordable medical universities, bountiful natural resources, acceptance of English language, the country welcomes diversity like none other; the locals are hardly seen inhospitable towards foreign tourists and students. Filipinos are warm, cheerful people with a great sense of humour. According to Gallup’s index the country is nearly ranked on top as of one of the happiest countries in the world. Pursuing MBBS or any higher studies in Philippines is surely a wise decision! Philippine Universities offer world class education in the field of medicine, nursing, pharmacy, business and many more subjects. Indian students are seen keenly interested in some of the top Medicine Universities in Philippines.

Medical education in Philippines is an easily workable option for Indian students for various reasons including similarities like homely and welcoming culture, affordable cost of living and tuition, compatible quality of education, state of the art infrastructure and advanced educational methods.

Let’s look into some other aspects that have been attracting international students to Philippines medical universities.

Language: Philippines is the third largest English speaking country in the world. English is used everywhere in the country. Most Billboards, road sign, newspapers, radios, groceries, market places, shopping centres, and education systems use English in their written and verbal communication.

Safety: An international student always searches for home away from home and it comes only with familiar culture, security and growth assurances. Philippines is comparatively considered a safe country; however, one needs to be aware of one’s environment anywhere around the globe at all times and the same simple rule applies with Philippines too. You cannot have your passports, personal IDs and all credit cards with you at all times. Whether it is Mumbai, Shanghai, Moscow, Mombasa, Sydney or New York pick pockets are found everywhere. Yes, their numbers increase or decrease depending on the city and the country you are in. Philippines is by and large considered a very friendly, safe and welcoming country; their acceptance towards diversities, different cultures and food have attracted tourist and international students from around the globe.

Eligibility: The current education system in Philippines need four years of college level grades after high school to receive a bachelor’s degree. So, on completion of 14 years they are admitted to MD course if he/she wishes to pursue medicine. An Indian student who has studied in India under 10+2 system therefore needs to do the BS course before enrolling for MD. However, some additional credits for the BS course are given for +2 which the Indian student has done, and the remaining credits of the BS course have to be obtained during the three semesters before he is granted a BS degree. Thereafter he is eligible for MD course. In short, an Indian student does a BS+MD course of 2 years and 4 years respectively. The system is expected to ease out in the coming years as Philippines is also switching over to 10+2 system.

Universities: Philippines is becoming one of the finest medical education hubs in the world. Renowned institutes like AMA School of Medicine, Cebu Doctors’ University, De La Salle Health Sciences Institute, Emilio Aguinaldo College, Manila Central University, Our Lady of Fatima, University of Northern Philippines and University of Perpetual Help System DALTA are rapidly growing to attract more international students year after year.
Universities have great student resource centres, expat and alumni communities, students’ hostel with great meal plans including vegetarian and vegan options and in room kitchenette facilities. Indian food is also made available in most universities.

Quality of Education: Most educational institutes in India follow British methods and curriculum while Philippines education is highly influenced by American methods and curriculum. Here the passing percentage is 75% much higher unlike in India. However, private colleges here are still less expensive and affordable unlike in India. Also, there is no capitation fee for admissions which is an added advantage. Students should be aware of exams like NMAT before coming to Philippines, i.e. requirement for admission to core medicine (MD).

Future Prospects: On completing MBBS from Philippines, medical students are eligible to practice in about 50 countries around the world. All they need is to pass that country specific screening test. Graduates from major Philippines Universities are eligible to appear for USMLE opening doors to USA. Medical graduates from these universities have distinguished future prospects and there is a huge demand for sincere, dedicated and trustworthy doctors to serve the mankind in today’s growing world.

Reading and believing is different than actually experiencing it, so just secure your admission and visit to experience Philippines as a Student, it will be that decision of your life that you will never ever regret in your life.

When dreams are big, efforts behind them are even bigger! A student’s dream of choosing a noble career in medicine, becoming a doctor should not be paused by conditions such as low test scores or lack of MBBS Universities in the country.  As they say, if one door is closed, another opens up.

NEET (National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test), is a medical entrance exam which is conducted for admissions to MBBS (Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgeon) and BDS (Bachelor of Dental Surgery) courses across all medical and dental colleges in India. NEET is conducted by CBSE India (Central Board of Secondary Education) and managed by both central and state governments as well as privately owned Universities and Institutes. The exam is conducted once a year during the month of July and August.

When hundreds and thousands of students appear for NEET, only to fill up around 60000 MBBS seats across entire India; the competition becomes fiercely competitive. At the end of the day the bests of the bests are chosen but not to forget the second bests were no less either. It becomes disheartening for many of those second to best students who are left out for a very nominal grade difference. This article is dedicated to those second to best passionate students who have a dying desire to make a difference in someone’s life, who equally craves for a meaningful, prestigious and secure profession to serve humanity through medical practice.

When there is less than 1% chance for a student to secure admission for a MBBS and BDS program in India through NEET, there is 50% higher chance to achieve MBBS abroad for that same student.  It is perhaps an extremely sombre scenario for that student. But can’t be left unexplored!

“Unable to secure desired score? Unable to afford universities? BUT can’t give up the dream of a career in medicine!” This is a very common feeling among the youth of India. Don’t be disheartened yet…..there is a hope; light at the end of the tunnel. There are affordable universities in a more approachable country to study medicine and achieve your dreams. The first name on that list is Philippines.

Most metro cities in Philippines have good facilities, less pollution levels, favourable weather and world class quality medical education. The cherry on the cake while studying in Philippines is their wide acceptance of English across the country.  Just like in India, the professors, teachers, locals speak English fluently.

If you are academically good and are willing to study for about 8 to12 hours a day (including 6 to7 hours of classroom time), you definitely will be able to crack the screening test. Philippines offers American system of medical education and the Primary Medical qualification is M.D. degree(MBBS). This qualification is globally recognized including the Medical Council of India.

There is no entrance exam for admission in the Philippines, all that you need after class/grade XII or HSC with a minimum aggregate of 50% marks in Physics, Chemistry, and Biology. And of course the student must have passed in all subjects and English is a compulsory subject.

Why Philippines? The country has now a global recognition and acceptance of the medicine degree. Quality medical education here is recognized by World Health Organization (WHO), IMED of ECFMG-USA, MCI, FAIMER, USMLE and similar other bodies. Philippines offer modern teaching methods with well-established infrastructure and best facilities. USMLE (United States Medical Licensing Examination) is always an option which opens the opportunities to go to the USA. Global exposure by working with various nationalities, easy accessibility with several daily flights, extensive syllabus and curriculum which are very similar as in India are some of the enticing aspects to study in Philippines. Secondly, Philippines offers affordable cost of education with excellent hands on medical practice, they also maintain ideal student-patient ratio. The universities have well-equipped laboratories, state of the art computer centres for students to learn and explore. So before you give up on your dreams or decide to wait for one more year and reappear for NEET, prioritize your expectations and evaluate all your options.

When you are visiting any new country, your language becomes part of your passport as it may or may not create an instant connection with their people. For example, if you can speak well in English and you are visiting France you will be asked to learn few words in French for sure; but if you are visiting United States your English will help you communicate easily. Similarly, in Philippines, as soon as you come out of immigration at Ninoy Aquino International airport, the first question you might hear is “Sir/Madam would you like to hire a taxi?”. These familiar words are as comforting as you realize that there will be an instant connection through the common spoken language -English.

The Philippines is the third largest English speaking country in the world. The country welcomes thousands of tourists from across the globe every day and is home to several foreign students, one might conclude its use of English language widely used across the country could be the key here!

More than 7000 islands together make up the Philippines; their people speak about 150 different languages. They have 2 national and 12 auxiliary languages; this mix is enough to confuse foreign expats. However, English being its second commonly used language completely overcomes the hurdle for tourists and foreign students to coexist with the local communities.

The original official language of the Philippines was Spanish for many centuries until the early half of the 20th century. Then, under US occupation, English was introduced into their schools; in 1935 English was added to the constitution alongside with Spanish as an official national language. In 1937 aggressive steps were taken to develop a national language based on one of the existing native languages. Tagalog was chosen as the base language and, in 1973, English became official language widely popular and accepted by Filipino people. Ever since Philippines has attracted high volume of English speaking foreign visitors for trade, business and education.

Education: Extremely similar to India, Philippines schools also teach in Filipino and English mediums. English medium schools and classroom are given all instruction in English only and is quite popular among the local communities; despite English not being spoken commonly in traditional households! As a result, most Filipinos, especially in urban areas, can speak a decent level of English. This fact is reassuring for English Speaking foreign expats, and definitely helps them settle and even penetrate in local Filipino communities. The Philippines education system is influenced by American education system. Entire curriculum is taught in English for English medium private schools.

Media: In comparison to some European countries where English media/news/TV is telecast with subtitles, Philippines is different. English is heard commonly on TV and radios!  

Daily Usage: It is safe to say that any English-speaking tourist or student can easily survive travelling around the Philippines. Billboards, restaurant menus, bus/train tickets, trade billing, hospitals and stores information are most likely to be printed in English and people will be speaking in English around. Just like any other rural place in any other country the more rural you go, the more provincial the place is, you will find less use of English.

Aside from its bountiful natural resources, the other main wealth of the Philippines is perhaps its people! Despite of poverty and corruption that still pervade in the country, the current generation of Filipinos have aptly demonstrated they can surpass the achievements of their elders and raise their standards of living in the country. The Philippine youth is seen readily willing to go to a great extend to welcome foreign communities in their country for trade, business and education. Filipino youth is enthusiastic to understand, appreciate and respect other cultures if given a chance.

So, if you feel a local Filipino is not getting what you are trying to say, it is important that you smile and make it sound like an easy question, they will certainly get more comfortable speaking to you then. The key is to smile and sound friendly, and you will be surprised to see their eagerness to help out! As they say “A smile goes a long way for a Filipino.”

The total number of seats in MBBS and BDS institutes across the country stands at 60,000. Competition for seats in undergraduate medical and dental courses across India is set to get tougher with the total registrations for the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) increasing by almost two lakh.

According to figures revealed by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), over 13.36 lakh hopefuls have registered for NEET 2018, up from 11.5 lakh who had registered in 2017. The total number of seats in MBBS and BDS institutes across the country stands at 60,000. Experts have attributed this increase in registrations to a number of reasons, including more states opting for NEET scores instead of their Common Entrance Tests (CETs) to fill seats for all health science courses. They also attribute the rise to an overall increase in number of students clearing Class 12 exams every year.

“Various policies and scholarships made available by the Central government as well as state governments have encouraged a higher number of students clearing secondary and higher secondary education across the country. We anticipate an increase on the basis of this reason every year,” said Dr Pravin Shingare, director, Directorate of Medical Education and Research (DMER).
