    What's your basis for comparison? Do you wish to practice in the US? Don'T know much about Singapore, but in case of China & the Phillipines, cost depends on many factors (which college, where it'S located, your lifestyle, etc). It'S especially difficult to compare, since Fillipino colleges follow the **/MD system while Chinese colleges award Bachelor of Medicine (BM) degrees.

    I wouldn't say Singapore is even in the cheap category. Local students pay about SGD80k for their full programme and that is 80% subsidised from the full amount - which equates to about about SGD400k. Think about it..its as expensive or even more than other schools. Probably if ur an international student, you'd have to bear the full fee..which is soooo bloody painful!

    MBBS/MD in India

    Now People of India Origin, NRIs, US, UK and Canadian citizen can study MBBS in India and do MD back in USA, UK etc and qualify for USMLE etc.

    There are several advantages to studying in India and it is more economical to study there and graduate early in reputed colleges.

    The College Admissions to Engineering and Medical require that students complete 10+2 (High School) with at least two years of English, Physics, Chemistry, Botany, Zoology and Math (required only for Engineering admissions).

    For medical students, MCAT is not required to be taken to graduate as a doctor in India. College selection can be a challenge and expert guidance may be needed for this.

    If you would like to learn more and need more details you may contact below in the UK,USA and Canada, please Call us in USA / Canada at (920) 750 4365

    Singapore is very expensive but provide the best medical education, essentially under the British MBBS system. To be admitted by NUS Medical School (the only one in this country up to now, I think) is extremely challenging.

    Just to correct it, theres another school called the Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School that offers the 4 year MD programme. It's extremely competitive to get into Singapore medical schools. As for NUS Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, one has to gain 4 As in their A level and even then theres only a 50% chance of getting in - the rest is dependant on stuff like volunteer work, medical experience, importantly interview aceing. As for Duke-NUS, essentially many PhD holders apply for the graduate school - if you hold a BSc, don't really see a point in applying unless its for self satisfaction - to know that you tried.

    Singapore medical schools, for what I know, are not very open to international students. And to top it off, based on worl ranking for medical schools, NUS Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine stands at a whopping 13 rank. So you can gauge how the selection may be. Really a lot of luck in it on top of you superb A level results - for the interview that is.

    Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong - nobody is perfect right?

    Good day!
