China is one of the oldest civilzations in the world having a written history of more than 4,000 years, rich culture and a respected educational tradition. That tradition continues to this day, especially in the field of medicine: China is now one of the fastest growing destinations for international students studying medicine in the world.
In order to guarantee a high-quality and standardized educational experience for international students, the Chinese Ministry of Education (MOE) first published the ‘Interim Provisions for Quality Control Standards in Undergraduate Medical Education’ in English for international students in 2007. It is now reviewed and published annually. It lists the 49 medical schools which have been authorized by the Chinese government to accept international MBBS students. Institutions that are not listed are not permitted to enroll international students for undergraduate
the following are the beneficial reasons:
The 49 approved medical schools are public universities under the supervision of the Chinese Government. All are listed in the World Health Organisation (WHO)’s “Directory of World Medical Schools”. This listing means that graduates are eligible to attend national medical screening tests such as MCI, PMDC, USMLE, PLAB, HPCSA, SCHS, etc.
On completing the requirements of the teaching program and passing the graduation examinations successfully, international medical undergraduates will be granted a graduation certificate and conferred a medical degree by the university. The English copy of the degree will state MBBS (Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery). International students can take your graduate diploma and required documents to the embassy of your home country for accreditation if needed.
void the burden of fierce competition or heavy application pressure.
Studying towards an MBBS in China is 70% cheaper than undertaking a similar program in the US or UK. The US MD program course (equivalent to MBBS) cost around USD 160,000-200,000. This excludes four years of Pre-med study. While a student can complete an MBBS course from any of the China’s medical university list for 6 years for only USD 30,000 – 50,000. Compared to the rest of the world the fees charged for MBBS courses in China are expansively reasonable. The charges of tutoring in the universities in China are subsidized by the Ministry of Public Health of the Chinese Government. All in all, It is very economical for international students to study in China.
The weather varies from location to location in China, so each university has its own beauty in each season. Students can enjoy their study life on campus or travel around the city on vacation. Meanwhile, to help international students to learn the magnificent and attractive Chinese culture and custom, most Chinese universities organize all kinds of special activities, which is also beneficial for them to settle into life in China. International students can experience not only the cultural history of China but also the spirit of a new generation in China.
All of China’s universities which are approved to enroll international students for English medium MBBS must meet minimum standards set by the Ministry of Education. The affiliated hospital where students undertake internships must be with the tier of Grade III, Level A, which have the most advanced international-standard medical instruments and also lots of patient beds. As well all know, China has the largest population in the world. Therefore, the medical market of China is developing at a rapid speed and becoming one of the world’s largest medical markets
