  • How is Chitwan medical college?

  • Is study in TU better or KU for future?

    • KU has better course, good timing and marks.
      TU is old course, always late and is government affiliated.
      Only IOM in Kathmandu under TU is good choice.

  • Which is a best course which i could study now which is related to medical..?

    • You Mean for Bachelor or Masters?

  • Which one is better kathmandu medical college or nepal medical college n why?

    • KMCTH, in most aspects.

      • Would you please provide me specific reasons

        • The Location, patient flow, students choice, and many more favors KMC.

  • Hello sir! Could you please provide the updated admission fee for 2016 !! I check the site almost everyday in hope for it. Also which college would you recommend choosing, CMC or KMC/NMC? I also noticed in the earlier comments that you said TU affiliated colleges have longer course duration than KU but isn’t it 5 and a half for both?? I’m confused. Please do reply 🙂

    • Hello,
      I am glad to hear from you.
      I think KMC better than CMC than NMC.
      Choose KU over TU. TU is government course and is disorganised.
      List is more or less same for 2016, not much change. Still we will update it asap.

  • Dear Sir,
    I’m about to pursue my MBBS studies here in Nepal and right now I have 2 medical colleges as options- Universal College of Medical Sciences and Nepal Medical College. I’m having a hard time selecting as some people say KU’s colleges are better while some say TU’s colleges make a better doctor. The patient flow in NMC is not that good but it is near my house so I can’t decide. My brain says go to UCMS but I want to stay here. Please help! After my Bachelors I’m willing to complete my PG abroad, either in US or Australia. What are my chances? Which college should I select?

    • MBBS is just the first step. See I will give your clear picture and you shall decide on your own, because it’s you who has to decide.
      1. KU is a shorter course because TU takes ~ 6 years with internship included.
      2. KU and TU have different kind of exams, KU has 7 subjects on 7 days type and TU has 3 subject 1 day.
      3. Both course will make you doctor but becoming a good doctor will depend on you.
      4. Patient flow and exposure might be better in UCMS.
      5. Faculty backup and numbers are more in NMCTH.
      6. Cost as per KU for NMCTH, UCMS as per TU rule.
      So decision is yours at last.
