This article from chinambbs.org should be interesting to many Indian students contemplating studying in China, the cost is pretty less and so you have an advantage over the huge donations charged in private medical colleges in India. Moreover the living cost is also cheaper than any other country studying abroad.
A few words of advice for Indian students: reach out and interact with the locals and the foreign students. Learn some basic Chinese language like every day greetings or saying hello.
Shihezi University – School of Medicine — this is the University of Xinjiang’s new math: 18 percent of its freshmen come from abroad, most from Pakistan, India and Bangladesh. Each pays tuition of $3000, about five times as much as students pay to study MBBS in India.
With the state financing by more than half in the last three years, university officials decided to increase the number of students from India to study medical graduate degree.
Most of the local agents as well as parents are approaching us to get their children to study MBBS in the Shihezi University. A few of whom have even asked Ms. Becky Zhang, the vice president, whether their children could get in if they paid any extra donations, “There are no donations to study MBBS in China,” she said.
There is a widespread belief among the university officials that internationalization is the key to the future, and Ms. Zhang said she is very glad to announce that there were now more students from asian countries than from other parts of the world. (All the foreign students be it from any country pay the same tuition fees.)
While the University of Shihezi’s demographic shifts have been sharper and faster, international students were 2 percent of the freshmen in 2006 — similar changes are under way at many medical universities across the nation: Nanjing, Qingdao, Zhengzhou and Tianjin campuses in China all had at least 10 percent foreign freshmen this academic year, more than twice that of five years ago. And at top medical universities in China including Shihezi University, at least 15 percent of this year’s freshmen are from other countries.
All told, the number of undergraduates from India alone has soared to 10,000 from 1500 five years ago. A few local agents in India have begun to charge Indian students additional fees besides tuition fees, just be careful and do not indulge with such agents.
“We’re in something very unique as the international educational institution, since we are giving away franchisee in India for local agents. This will confirm that there are no extra charges or hidden fees charged to the students, (other than the service charges) who seek to study MBBS in China. Many local agents in India realize that there is gold out there and sometimes direct the students and the parents in the wrong direction,” said Becky Zhang, the vice president of Sales (India & China) at the China MBBS Educational Institution. “While it’s the admissions offices butting up against the issues most right now, every department after them, every faculty member who comes into contact with us or our franchisee will be properly guided as well as help will be provided by one of our employees’ in each and every step, till the Indian student reaches the University in China.”
We have already begun for the franchisee offices one, which is located in Thane(W), Maharashtra, where the students will be properly explained, the procedure to apply for studying MBBS in Chinese Medical Universities.
