Around 500 Kashmiri students register for medical education in Bangladesh every year, according to a report published in The Kashmir Monitor.
They are registered in different medical colleges of Bangladesh every year, said the report based on figures acquired from different Srinagar-based consultancies.
These students are said to mostly opt for MBBS, BDS, and MD courses. Many students rely on scholarships, the report said.
“We are getting a huge response from the students. On an average we are registering 100 students every year,” Muneeb Basit Bhat, head of Airborne Consultations and Placements, was quoted to have said.
For many Kashmiri students, the report pointed out, the reason to study in Bangladesh seems to be the growing competition and lack of medical institutions in the valley.
