Every year, students will be taken to Malaysia for training.
With increasing demand from South India, especially from Tamil Nadu, the University had increased the intake to 100 seats this year. Students will be admitted based on NEET marks only. The course fee is Rs. 50 Lakhs inclusive of the trips to Malaysia for training but exclusive of hostel fees in Kolkata.
