MBBS in China

China has made tremendous progress in terms of medical education. Due to the Chinese government’s continuous investment for improving the quality of universities, medical education in China has reached stellar heights. Each year, a number of students from India flock to China to pursue MBBS. The medical universities in China offer high-quality education at a much lower rate when compared to other countries all over the world. The facilities provided to the students are comparable to those in European and other developed countries.

Medical Council of India (MCI) recognizes around 49 medical universities from China. The students pursuing their MBBS from China are taught Mandarin from the very first year of the course which helps them interact easily with the patients. The courses are taught in English. Some of the medical universities also offer internships. Chinese medical universities are also recognized by the World Health Organization, UNICEF and FAIMER.

Why Study MBBS in China for Indian students (Advantages)

The following are the advantages of studying MBBS in China:

The Chinese Ministry of Education (MOE) published the ‘Interim Provisions for Quality Control Standards in Undergraduate Medical Education’ in English for international students in 2007. This was done to guarantee a high-quality and standardized educational experience for international students.

The following are the reasons why China has become a hot destination for MBBS:

  • There are 45 approved medical Universities that teach in English in China which are approved by the Medical Council of India (MCI). All of them are also listed in the World Health Organization (WHO)’s “Directory of World Medical Schools”.
  • The graduates from Chinese universities are qualified to apply for various International medical entrance exams such as MCI, PMDC, USMLE, and PLAB.
  • The cost of doing your MBBS in China (including fees, food, and accommodation) is way less than other developed countries such as US, UK, Australia, Canada, and New Zealand.
  • The Medical Universities in China are some of the best ranked globally and offer world-class education with a high-quality standard along with extremely well-qualified faculty.
  • Students get ample opportunities in their field after completing their MBBS from China.
  • An MBBS in China internship is valid in India. This means that once a student comes back to India, he or she does not need to do an internship in India.
  • Each of the universities has a well-equipped hospital attached to it with the latest equipment and technology in the field of medicine. Doing clinical rounds in such hospitals will equip the students with deep knowledge and practical experience.
  • There are hostels available in every Chinese university with excellent facilities. The hostel premises also have the round the clock security thereby ensuring the safety of both boys as well as girls.
  • Unlike India, you do not need to give any donation for securing admission into a Chinese medical university. Students are given direct admission on the basis of the NEET result and the class 12th result.
  • Also, there is no entrance test required for admission which makes the entire process much easier.
  • The MBBS and MD degrees are acknowledged by international bodies like the World Health Organization and UNESCO.
  • MBBS in China can be completed in 5 years as compared to 6 years in Ukraine, Russia or the Philippines.
  • Indian food is readily available at most of the Universities as China has a lot of Indian restaurants. Students can also cook their own food.
  • Medical Fees of most of the Chinese Universities ranges between 25 Lakhs to 27 Lakhs. This is an approximate amount of the cost required for a total of five years of study, including all the expenses of the student.
  • The curriculum of MBBS in China focuses on providing practical training to the students rather than concentrating on a lot of theory.
  • Universities of China also offers scholarships to Indian students on the basis of the NEET result.
