Opting for a graduate medical program ( M.b.b.s in China )is a wonderful opportunity for medical aspirants as it opens gates for their bright future. Asia’s second largest country is a preferred place for students to pursue medical studies, especially a degree course of MBBS. The country serves as a hub for medical studies as well as updated medical courses and has various provisions keeping the requirements for students in mind.

Why do Medical Studies from China?

Being the largest population of the world, China pays close attention to the education of the students and aims at providing quality education with world-class facilities. Due to the flexible policies and ease of admission, China is the first choice for medical students looking for MBBS courses abroad.

  1. A wide range of Institutes Since medicine is one of the focus areas of China, the government makes sure there are enough reputed medical institutes to provide the required education that one needs for fulfilling his/her medical dreams. As a result, there are more than 40 medical institutes recognized by the government which trains students into exceptional doctors. Not only that, but all of these medical colleges accept international students every year. Thus, any student can easily make an approach to study MBBS in China. Also, most of the medical colleges in China are ranked among the top 500 Medical colleges of the world which are another great reason to pursue medical courses in China.
  2. You’re not the only one One might feel alienated when planning to move abroad for higher studies but taking an MBBS admission in China won’t have the same effect on you. The reason for that is many of the medical institutes are open to international students, thus every year more than 10,000 students’ move to China in order to pursue higher medical studies.
  3. Multi-Linguistic Approach The language barrier tops the list of concerns when going out of the country and thus the place one chooses might solely depend upon the common language spoken there. In China, though the common language spoken is Chinese, the government recognized medical institutions have their whole curriculum structure set in English medium. Thus, language won’t be a big issue if you have opted China for medical studies.
  4. Budget friendly – Budget is a fundamental factor in choosing any particular medical college. Going abroad for higher studies rings a bell about the expenses incurred and one might find it pretty pricey but the reason students consider China for medical studies is that of its economic education and accommodation. The tuition fees and accommodation round up to 3.5 lakhs per annum in the top-rated universities. Besides the tuition fee, the cost of living is also low as compared to the European countries. Any student can survive easily in China with INR 25000-35000 for a month.
  5. Standardized and Quality Education – Being one of the strongest economies in the world, the Chinese government sets aside a high budget for education and thus, the standards on which the institutions are based are constantly revised. One can observe from the general trend that the medical institutions in China are practically based which automatically imply that the labs, facilities, and infrastructure is latest and constantly kept up-to-date to make sure the students don’t miss out on any aspect of medical education. The curriculum of an MBBS degree in China usually spans over four and half years where four semesters are totally dedicated to the theory, developing the concept and inculcating the various fundamentals of medicine whereas the rest 5 semesters are focused towards the practical implementation and hands-on experience for all round development.
  6. Ease of admission – The main perk of opting medical education in China is the ease of admission. The process is a cakewalk and doesn’t require a queue of gruesome entrance exams to be cleared. A common SET (Standard Entrance Test) is sufficient to get admission. The exam covers all the basic concepts of science one would have studied in high school. The admission in Medical Universities of China is direct and has nothing to do with the donation. Since no cumbersome process and examinations are present, the competition isn’t very high and the chances of getting selected for in the medical institute are very high. Also, those who are not able to clear medical entrance exam in India, China is the place for you.

Important documents required to do a Bachelor’s Degree Program in Medicine from China

  • The student must have cleared the examinations of Biology, Physics, Chemistry, and Maths (optional) with English as one of the majors in high school/12th standard with a minimum of 50% marks.
  • Passing Certificate of 10th and 12th and School Leaving Certificate are required as a proof.
  • The application letter or the acceptance letter from the University/College for Visa proceedings.
  • Valid Student Visa for China. One can apply for Chinese Visa from the China Embassy in their respective country. Remember, it is necessary to have the application letter from the college in order to verify the purpose of moving to China.
  • Some other documents one would require after reaching China are Resident Permit of China and Police Registration document of China.

Why is Studying MBBS in China better than any other country?

Well, there are so many benefits which you can enjoy while studying MBBS in China. Some of them are given as follow:-

  • The government keeps an eye on education standards in China, which nominates higher education fees.
  • China offers cheap yet efficient medical courses as compared to other countries.
