MBBS in China
China is one of the strongest economies in the world and naturally. For many, the country might pose language barriers, but is still a top destination for both business and education. China opened its gates to foreign medical students in 2003. Ever since, the global rush for Chinese medical colleges has continued unabated. Marking their presence in that rush have been thousands of Indian students, who find these medical schools a wise investment in terms of education fees and international acceptance of MBBS degrees.
China has hundreds of medical schools, offering MBBS education to a wide sweep of international students, including Indians, as mentioned before.
However, the most pertinent question is: how many of these universities use English as a medium of teaching? It is difficult to pinpoint each and every one of them, but there are quite a few leading medical schools in China that are widely known for their well-crafted MBBS courses in English.
Going by the information available with the Chinese Ministry of Education, 45 universities are allowed to offer MBBS degrees in English and, needless to say, they admit foreign students. Some of these are:
Medical education in China has a five-year duration, like in most countries. Add to that an extra year for internship, which has to be completed to earn a final degree. For admission, Indian students would have to produce their NEET scorecard.
It would be in the fitness of things to mention here that Saraswati Online.Com, one of world’s top education facilitators, has very strong links with overseas medical universities to where it has been sending students who wish to pursue MBBS abroad. As some universities make it mandatory for Indian students to also learn Chinese, Saraswati Online.Com has been placing competent English-speaking staff on the campuses of several Chinese medical schools to ease language concerns.
