Nepal Tops Indian MBBS Destination List Thanks to WRC

In recent years, Nepal has become more popular among international students, especially those from India who want to study medicine.


New Delhi : Nepal, long admired for its breathtaking Himalayan landscape and top-tier tourist attractions, is now generating headlines for a very different reason: it has become the world’s top choice for medical school. Wide Range Consultancy (WRC) Pvt. Ltd., Kathmandu, was established in 2007 by Mr. Sudeep Nayak with the intention of aiding in this shift on a worldwide scale. Since its establishment, WRC has been instrumental in directing Indian parents and their children to some of the world’s best medical colleges, including those in Nepal, India, Bangladesh, and many more. WRC, a Nepal Government certified educational consultant, is a first of its type and has changed the way people think about studying MBBS in Nepal.

In recent years, Nepal has become more popular among international students, especially those from India who want to study medicine. It is intriguing to investigate elements like eligibility requirements, admission processes, and tuition cost that may be contributing to the growing number of Indian students who are making this choice.

Indian students have an advantage over other applicants to medical schools in Nepal because of the two countries’ close proximity and the special friendship and cooperation between them, evidenced by an open border and deep-rooted kinship and cultural similarities. Students may easily fly home for breaks since neither a passport nor a VISA is required for citizens of India to enter Nepal, or vice versa. Nepal’s status as one of the world’s safest countries is likely to sway parents’ decisions. This is especially true in light of the recent conflict between Russia and Ukraine, which has resulted in many students in that country having to abruptly end their studies and return home.

Just as in India, MBBS students must do an internship of at least one year’s duration at their parent hospital after completing their four and a half year degree. Compared to several private medical institutes in India, the price is much lower in Nepal. In addition, English is used as the language of teaching, and the two nations’ medical curricula are quite similar since they both adhere to the standards established by the Nepal Medical Council (NMC). Indian students may more easily adjust to their new environment and pursue a medical education in Nepal because to the high degree of curriculum comparability between the two countries. After graduation, Indian students may apply to take the Nepal Medical Council’s (NMC) Licensure Exam. The Labour Act of Nepal makes it easy for Indians to practise there because of the similarities between the two countries’ cuisines, diseases, and pharmaceutical brand names.
