Why study an MBBS in China?

As an international student, I wonder why you should choose China for your MBBS. There are many other places in the world where you can study MBBS, so why China? We, at Intime Study Advisors, have compiled some reasons that make China the most attractive place for international students to pursue MBBS studies.

High level of education and research

First of all, #StudyMBBSinChina is affordable. Universities offering MBBS programmes for international students in China are not only affordable but are also generally well-regarded and equipped with top-notch and state-of-the-art technology and research facilities. To be fair, China has invested heavily in research over the years and in 2016, for the first time, the number of scientific publications surpassed that of the US, according to the US National Foundation, which is a huge achievement.

Tuition fee availability and admission opportunities

One of the main reasons why international students come to study MBBS in China is the availability of tuition fees offered by Chinese medical universities. Generally, the tuition fees at medical universities offering MBBS in China are very affordable, thus making it very affordable, especially for Pakistani students, compared to the tuition fees offered by private medical universities in their own countries. On the other hand, it is easier for international students to get into Chinese medical universities, even though they have better facilities, equipment, professors, research and hospitals compared to other developing countries.

Accreditation of institutions around the world

On the other hand, another factor that plays an important role is the wide accreditation that Chinese medical universities have worldwide accreditation. Many MBBS (clinical medicine) universities in China have accreditations from various international organisations such as ECFMG, WDOMS, WCAME, WFME, FAIMER, PMC (Pakistan Medical Council) list, etc. Students after MBBS in China can easily take licensure examinations in different countries of the world like USMLE, PLAB, AMC, HPCSA, PMC etc.

Affordable and high standard of living

Life in China is both affordable and provides a high standard of living. Generally, a student’s monthly expenditure of 600 RMB should be enough for food and daily expenses. However, please note that each individual’s expenses may vary depending on their standard of living.

Quality Transport

As an international student wishing to study MBBS in China, another major concern is transportation. China is equipped with all kinds of modern transport systems both between and within cities. For intercity transport, the local bus system, BRT and metro are highly developed, accessible and easily available. On the other hand, intra-city transport is also highly developed and the main mode of transport in China is rail. With CRH train speeds of around 350 km per hour, journey times are considerably shorter compared to conventional modes of transport such as buses in other developing countries. Alternatively, planes or buses can be used to travel between cities.

Extremely safe and friendly environment

China is one of the safest country in the world for international students to go to. The Chinese are extremely friendly and helpful and never want to cause any problems for foreigners. The sense of security is so high that you can walk around the city at night without any worries. However, this does not mean that one should not be careless, it is always better to be careful than sorry. In China, the public does not own guns; if someone is found in possession of a gun, it is a crime punishable by at least 3 years in prison, which increases security and reduces crime. The Chinese people are generally peaceful and there is good public security. Foreign students wishing to study MBBS in China should not worry about security and can safely choose China as their preferred destination for MBBS studies.

Hospital placements

Students studying MBBS in China can also take the opportunity to do an internship at a hospital affiliated with their university.

Honestly, this is a great opportunity as you get to work alongside the best and most highly qualified doctors in hospitals that are equipped with the latest facilities and technology, and are clean and well-organised.

Friendly and supportive professors

Professors and lecturers at Chinese universities are very friendly. In my experience, if an international student studying MBBS in China cannot understand something, the professor will do his best to explain it further. If the student still cannot fully understand, the professor may invite the student to his/her office after class to explain the topic in more detail. The best thing that can be said about professors who teach MBBS in China is that they are eager to pass on their knowledge to their students and are very happy to teach their students and see their students succeed.

International environment

If you want to study MBBS in China, in addition to all the advantages mentioned above, another point to look out for is exposure to an international environment that can boost your confidence and how you see the world as a whole. Your class may include students from different countries, nationalities and colours. This gives you the opportunity to mingle with and understand people from different cultures, thus giving you a deeper understanding of the different peoples with whom the Almighty has blessed the Earth!
