FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES
As it is a private institution, the fee is comparatively on the higher side. For 2014 batch the course fee was around 36 Lacs amounting to 7.6lacs per annum. But now the fee is floating fees according to which they can hike the fee every year. Hostel and mess adds another 1Lac per annum. But then it's all worth it. We have South East Asia's largest medical library- the health sciences library manipal. We have one of the largest indoor sports centre of theworld- Marena which has about 200 treadmills and everything that is required. indoor squash, tt, basketball, name it we have it.
Placements right after completing MBBS is difficult as specialties and super specialties are preferred in Kasturba Hospital Manipal. So working at a basic level that is, as a senior resident to gain experience can be done for better placements within the campus.
"Hostels are pretty decent for the money we pay. There are different kinds of hostel based on the students needs. Indira Girls hostel single room costs about 56000 per annum. Double room would be less around 52000 per annum. These come with attached bathrooms. There are absolutely no common baths or dorms. AC rooms are a bit on the higher side cost about 1lac or more. Chandrashekhar girls hostel is more expensive and luxurious with special beds and deluxe rooms. In addition to all this separate mess fees needs to be paid which is another 50k a year. There are sufficient hostel rooms for everyone. There is no need to join any PG. Average rentals in that case would be 6 to 8 thousand a month.
Seniors are the most helpful people when it comes to anything. Be it exams, places to go, books to refer, or even friends to make. They add to the good experiences in Manipal.
Most of the faculty are highly qualified doctors with multiple research papers and PhD. They have good teaching experience and are student friendly. There are cameras in classes to make sure that the faculty is teaching well and also so that students missing the class can access the class video later on.
Life is all fun in Manipal with the clubs and pubs and everything but when it comes to the University exams, I must say it's no cake walk. It gets as strict as it can ever be and very frustrating but then the college prepares you for this through out the year so that isn't a problem. Labs- we have Asia's largest museum MAP - Manipal anatomy and pathology museum which is our lab. Over 50000 people come to visit this museum from all parts of the country. The labs are very sophisticated, equipped with AC and everything.
