Philippine Medical Colleges Open to Indians
Seven hundred seats in the medical colleges of the Philippines have been earmarked for students from other Asian countries, especially India and China.

It will cost an Indian student between Rs.1.2 million to Rs.1.5 million to study in a Philippine university. The amount will include visa fees, course fees and accommodation expenses.

The government of Philippines has set aside the seats and Indian service provider Health Care Management International (HCMI) will officially represent here the Philippine government's Commission on Higher Education, which will offer the admissions.

"We are inviting students from India as we share a common language, English", said Cecelia P Reyes, a Philippine government representative in an interaction here Thursday.

She said there are nearly 100,000 Korean students in Philippine colleges. "In a few years time, we hope to reach that number with Indian students", she said.

Students who graduate from Philippine medical colleges will be given a certificate from the Medical Council of India so that they are able to practice in India, HCMI managing director Baljit Singh said.
