If spending extravagant money is a problem for you but you don’t want to let your dreams suffer because of that, you must consider studying MBBS in Kyrgyzstan. Moreover, even after appearing in the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET), only a small percentage of students can make it through but not all students can do MBBS in India.
After all, getting admission to Indian government colleges is extremely difficult and the fees of private colleges are not payable by everyone. Hence, studying MBBS abroad has become one of the most feasible options for Indian students and Kyrgyzstan is a prominent place on the map to pursue your dream degree.
Most importantly, Kyrgyzstan medical universities provide high-quality medical education at low costs. Also, did you know that every year, the number of students going to Kyrgyzstan increases by 21.54%?
The average travel distance between India and Kyrgyzstan for air travel is approximately 1,200 miles. Hence, the fastest direct flight from India to Bishkek (the capital of Kyrgyzstan) is 6 hours, 25 minutes. However, considering layovers, formalities, etc., the average flight time between India and Kyrgyzstan can be up to 11 hours and 55 minutes.
