Individual Circumstance - Students preparing for NEET exam for the consecutive years, should have a light over it.

Goals of Individuals- Becoming a doctor is not the only goal for some individuals as they are more focused for their future career. Medical universities abroad provide many research and scientific programs along with MBBS courses, so students who are  interested in pursuing research could have  great exposure.

However, Tuition fees, hostel charges, living expenses , and other expenses vary greatly across different countries depending upon the currency rate at the time.

Limited Number of Seats - There is huge competition in India when it comes to the NEET exam. Students who are unable to secure good rank in the exam are also debarred from taking admission in government or any private medical university. For all students who are not capable enough to secure high rank, MBBS abroad is quite a good option for them as they only have to qualify the NEET exam in their required category.

Global Perspective - Pursuing MBBS abroad provides multiple options and also provides students with a global perspective on medical practices, healthcare and disease. This can be beneficial for students while doing their post graduation and can be valuable in an interconnected world where humans are facing healthcare challenges.

However, apart from the advantages there are considerable challenges associated with studying MBBS abroad, such as language barrier, difference in syllabus and standard of education, difference in diseases of other countries, adapting to a new environment is also challenging in some cases and many more other reasons.
