Students Speak

Here is what our students and alumni have to say...

At Manipal, they encourage us to go beyond just books and lead a balanced life that is very healthy as we graduate and start a working life. Throughout the year, we have a lot of extracurricular activities. This helps us to build healthy competitive relationships with our batchmates.

Sajni Mahanama
MBBS Student, class of 2019 - from Sri Lanka

In MMMC, we conduct our own research with our batchmates. Throughout the research journey, we are guided by our professors. We have built better personalities and enhanced our self-esteem through these projects. At the end of these projects, we publish our research papers in a leading healthcare science journal.
