MDS Fee Structure of Deemed Universities

As I have mentioned previously, the demand for deemed universities is rising every day between MDS aspirants. This emerging popularity is attributed to the fact that most of these institutes are well-furnished with both basic and advanced technologies, instil modern curricula, have good research facilities, and have experienced faculties.

So, coming to the fees, all dental institutes display a wide range of fees based on the speciality and the institutional management.

Also, I have received a lot of queries concerning the fee structure for MDS courses in these dental institutes. I do get that, an idea of the fee structure helps the aspiring MDS candidates to plan the budget for the three-year course. So, I have added the details of the fee structure of MDS in deemed universities, which is as follows:

The fee structure mentioned here doesn’t include the accommodation charges and any miscellaneous fees of the colleges. Hence, while you consider the annual fees, you can assume a sum of 1 Lakh to 1.5 Lakh for the hostel and food.

Miscellaneous fees might or might not be present in every college. However, since the MDS curriculum is designed with a lot of practical applications, considering an additional 70 thousand to 1 lakh yearly will be helpful while you plan the budget for MDS.
