Each year, hundreds of Indian students study MBBS in China in various medical universities like Shihezi University, Tianjin University, Qingdao University, Zhongnan University and more.
Sonia Khandelwal, a junior student, is currently studying MBBS in Shihezi University, medicine is one of a several courses she’s taking at the Shihezi University in Xinjiang, as she studies other aspects of medical degree. She’s meeting lots of friends from other foreign countries and the syllabus for studying MBBS in China is as same as in India, so she is appreciating the experience of a lifetime. Here are few questions asked to her by some of the parents from India:
Q. Why did you make the decision to study MBBS in China?
A. Last summer, I wrote down a list of things I want to accomplish in my life. One of the first things that came to my mind was traveling the world. I have only traveled outside India once in my life and I was way too little to remember. By spending a semester studying in China, I knew that my eyes would be opened to the reality that my way of life here in India isn’t the only one in the world. I knew that I would be able to further my education in a way that would far surpass a learning experience restricted to my homeland — to my comfort zone.
Q. Why did you choose China?
A. Studying MBBS in China is the most affordable experience to study abroad. Also being recognized by Medical Council of India, I thought it’d be exciting to visit a place with some history. Since I also come from a country with long cultural history, I would have incredible opportunities to visit historic placed in China of which I have read or heard so far. As a junior student, I am exploring lot of things while studying medicine degree in China.
Q. What is your daily life like in China?
A. I live in a nice air-conditioned room in the University hostel among other Indian students. At the hostel, we are staying with all the foreign students from different countries. I’m a 5 minute walk away from school. I live with one other Indian student sharing room with me. The two of us actually took a trip to Beijing about two weeks ago. All in all, I’ve been here for about four months and have visited numerous historical sites in addition to going to class during the week, striking up conversations with my professors and with local citizens and just soaking in everything there is to learn about this place. My roommates and I have become really close, and I have a great group of friends from India.
Q. What has been the biggest challenge in studying abroad?
A. I would have to say that the language barrier has definitely been the biggest challenge. Prior to coming here, everyone told me that China is Americanized and that a lot of people speak English. That is not the case, however I’ve found so many kind people here who have helped me and are really interested in Indian culture too. They love to strike up a conversation with me. It’s something that I’m working on with the help of my senior Indian students. And it’s made me more resourceful.
Q. Would you encourage others to study MBBS in China?
A. Absolutely. No doubt about it, yes! I have only been here a short time, but this has already been the most incredible experience of my life. I still can’t get used to the amazing infrastructure which China has in all of its developing cities. This experience has and continues to be, surreal to me, and I honestly don’t think I’ll grasp the reality of it until I complete a year from now. This has been the opportunity of a lifetime and I am so blessed to have a family who has made it possible for me to embark on such a journey.
Q. Do you communicate with family and friends back in the India regularly?
A. Thanks to Skype and Facebook, it’s easy to stay connected with everyone back home. I was even able to download a free app on my iPod touch that allows me to text my parents. Mom was grateful for that one! I love my parents
In short, if you are seriously looking for a fantastic study abroad program with affordable prices, China MBBS Educational Institution is the best place for you.
