On 24th December,2017, Dr. Partha Sarathi Ganguli, Chief Mentor Saraswati Online.Com from India and Prof. Xu Xiaoyi, President, Guangdong Association of Vocational Education Informatization from P.R. China signed a Memorandum of Understanding based on mutual trust, benefit and development between two parties and the promotion of International exchanges and cooperation. The two organizations will engage in faculty and students exchange in the areas of Engineering and Management etc. They will look for enrollments of students from South Asia and will introduce high level talent in the respected fields. They will be working towards enhancing inter-collegiate cooperation and exchange of teachers to make exchange of knowledge possible which will be beneficial for the students in the long run.
Both South West Forestry University and Saraswati Online.Com have reached an agreement about the Joint Cooperative Program through friendly consultation and negotiation and signed the Official Agreement and agreed to conduct a Joint Cooperative Program for foreign students for the following majors to be taught in English language:
- Bachelor of Civil Engineering,
- Bachelor of Computer Engineering, and
- Bachelor of Business Management.
The degree awarded to the students after completion of the complete course of their major required by The People’s Republic of China and South West Forestry University and reached the school work standards will be Bachelor’s Degree in their respective majors as mentioned above.
The standard duration of the course will be for four years, including three years of academic training and one year of Research Project & Internship in the final year.
With this signing of the agreement, the two organizations shook their hands towards spreading
English as a medium of Education in China.
The 5th Anniversary and Academic Forum of Guangdong Association of Vocational Education Informatization took place on 24th December, 2017 at South China Normal University. Dr. Partha Sarathi Ganguli, the Chief Mentor of Saraswati Online.Com was present at the gathering. He started his speech by thanking South China Normal University for inviting him to the program. He continued to say that both China and India has a very long history, the two countries are the first and second when it comes to population and are two friendly neighbours. He highlighted how many students from India and China are already going to each other’s country to pursue higher education as China is very famous for imparting medical education to Indian students and India is very famous for imparting education in English, Information Technology and Yoga to the Chinese students. He said that he has been working with Chinese Universities since 2004 and has been conducting education programs which so far have placed more than 4000 students in China from India and more than 2000 students from other South Asian/African countries in the field of Medicine apart from Engineering and Management subjects. It was very evident from his speech that he feels that in this period of globalisation and internationalisation it is very important to provide for exchange between countries at the school or university level as it will inculcate among the students a global understanding and brotherhood feeling which will help them to perform better in the global arena in future. He clearly stated that in today’s world, no country or for that matter no one be it a person, an institution, an university, a city or any group can progress alone and since we need to syndicate, it is better that we prepare our future generation with a deep understanding of the global issues and better understanding of planetary situation by offering them opportunity early in life. He appreciated the endeavour of SCNU to globalise the vocational education of Guangdong province and said that it is particularly commendable and is the need of the hour.
He took the opportunity to congratulate them on this path breaking initiative and pledged his sincere and best support whenever sought for.

He said that there are many universities in China which offers medical education to foreign students, but from his own experience he stated that Dali University attaches lot of importance and priority to the program and makes best academic experience available for the international students of medicine. A very successful and large number of alumni of Dali University is prominently placed in the health care system of South Asia, and many of them are in regular touch with him and he feels extremely satisfied in observing their growth and success. Apart from being good doctors they are also good human beings and that brings to the organization special happiness. He continued saying that Saraswati Online.Com and Dali University have successfully forged international exchange program and their cooperation has so far produced more than 2500 doctors who are serving in their respective countries and abroad successfully as they give very high importance to innovations through teaching learning experience and continuously make effort to take initiative in improving pedagogical aspects of the programs they conduct.
He ended by thanking all the leaders, teachers, administrators and staff of Dali University on behalf of all the parents of the students for accepting the foreign students and providing the facility for them to succeed in their chosen field.

Dated: 9th August, 2017
This is to intimate you about our upcoming endeavor to enlighten your theory knowledge in tune with the academic standards followed in Indian Medical colleges that shall help you to understand the core concept in your subject preparation with a long term view in making you pass the FMGE (Foreign Medical Graduate Examination) in the VERY FIRST ATTEMPT itself.
As a part of our “Medical Learning Enhancement Program” we are organizing this coaching program completely FREE for our 2013, 2014 & 2015 batch students across all colleges.
Date – 16th -28th July 2017
VENUE : Jyotirmoy Knowledge Park, Sonarpur, Kolkata
KEY ASPECTS of the VACATION THEORY Coaching Program:
13 days Intensive & Exhaustive Program assuring concept development
- Smart selection of subjects considering the lacunas in teaching at China
- Dedicated MBBS Academic Coordinator in campus for round the clock doubt clearing sessions
- Classroom teaching + Hostel accommodation in the same campus for the 1st time in India
- Ideal ambience for best teaching learning experience
- Classes by highly experienced expert faculties
SUBJECTS: BIOCHEMISTRY, PHYSIOLOGY, PATHOLOGY, PHARMACOLOGY & COMMUNITY MEDICINE
- It has come to the notice of the MED that the knowledge of our students in few Basic Medicine subjects mentioned above is abysmal.
- The students do not possess optimum theory knowledge that they can correlate clinically which may prove detrimental in near future. Hence we are arranging the same.
- It is high time that the students become serious and put their extra efforts meaningfully in order to plug the gaps in their theory knowledge.
Food & Accommodation charges:
To be incurred by the student participating. Rs.5000 for non A/C accommodation OR Rs.6000 for A/C accommodation.
Rules & Regulations:
- Interested Students of all batches mentioned herewith must confirm their participation by sending email to email@example.com ; firstname.lastname@example.org with their Name, Batch, University, Mobile number, WhatsApp number on or before 30th JUNE 2017 without fail.
- Interested students are also instructed to submit their names to their respective Overseas Resident Student Coordinator (ORSC) as per the deadline mentioned above.
- Any student who fails to intimate us within the time stipulated above will NOT be able to participate in the vacation theory coaching at JKP.
- Students participating in this program must understand that they will not be allowed to leave the campus in between during the execution of the program. An undertaking regarding same from the candidate will be taken at the time of joining the program in person.
- The management will NOT entertain any unprofessional invocation viz. possibility of joining as a Day Scholar (Even for a student from Kolkata), permission to attend only selected classes, permission to attend only theory lectures and miss test & discussions. [*However if the management feels that a particular student is good enough as per his/her knowledge in some subjects and doesn’t need further guidance from us in the said subjects, then he/she may be allowed to utilize the theory class timings in the Student Library for self-studies.]
- Students participating in this rigorous program must have a minimum of 90% attendance for all classes conducted during the tenure without fail however ideally the students should NOT miss even one class.
- Students participating in must follow all directions and participate in all programs in letter and spirit.
- Students participating in must abide by all other rules and regulations of the campus that are in place and those which may be in effect from time to time.
Our objective is to ensure that each and every student of ours pass FMGE in the very first attempt itself.
However that can happen only when the students have their concepts cleared in all subjects undertaken in MBBS curriculum.
Chinese Medical Universities are far more generous in granting vacations in contrast to their Indian counterparts. Such long vacations in a vast curriculum of Medicine prove detrimental ultimately. Vacation is the only time when you all are not occupied with your semester classes and comparatively free. Hence please utilize it meaningfully.
We believe that attending this program will surely enable you to take one step closer to achieve your goal of passing FMGE in 1st Attempt and will extract an improved academic version of You out of Yourself.
At the end of the day our success lies in the success of our own students!!

INCLUSION – EXCLUSION clause for Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh & Odisha:

So if students want to enroll their name in these 3 states then we will accept the same. Please note that if any such student who is now giving name for Gujarat or Madhya Pradesh or Odisha and has already given his/her name under any other state as of now for COP, then automatically his/her name will be deleted from the hospital in which he/she has given name and further be included under Gujarat or Madhya Pradesh or Odisha.
NON COOPERATION clause:
It has come to the notice of MED, that few students from various universities have given their names casually and in reality they are actually NOT planning to attend the COP.
If any such student is identified as soon as the COP starts on 31st July, i.e. although he/she has given name to join COP but did not show up on the reporting date to that designated hospital, then such candidate will be DEBARRED from participating in future COP that shall be organized by MED, Saraswati Online.Com
MED wishes that the students take this COP seriously and join in letter and spirit and go well prepared.

- Any student who fails to intimate us within the time stipulated above will NOT be able to participate under any circumstances.
- Students are instructed to select one centre ONLY for availing the COP from available options mentioned above. Once selected the change of centre will NOT be entertained later on. However ONLY if any new additions or deletions happen in the list of available hospital, the management shall entertain such requests of changes.
Students are also instructed to choose and decide the hospital they wish to join for COP WISELY. We appreciate
region specificity i.e. if a hospital is available in the close vicinity of the student’s residing area, district or state we will allow him/her to join ONLY in that hospital which is closest.
