China has a huge population of nearly 138 crores. In order to meet the needs and requirements of such a mammoth population, the country has to have each and every amenity (right from food to infrastructure) in plenty. This holds true for education as well, specifically higher education.
So that there may be sufficient number of institutions of higher learning for the youth, China established a number of universities and colleges. Of these, there happen to be a multitude of medical universities and colleges which are known to offer world-class medical education that is at par with that provided by some of the leading countries of the world. Moreover, when it comes to fees, unlike the medical universities in other countries of the world, the universities and colleges in China do not charge you a fortune.
The fees that is charged by most of the universities in China is fairly affordable, to the extent that many students from countries outside of China prefer to study medicine in China. Out of many such international students worldwide, a major portion is keen to pursue MBBS from China.
Such students are interested in knowing in detail the eligibility for MBBS in China. So, let us explore the same.
The criterion of age that determines an aspirant’s eligibility for MBBS in China is pretty simple. He or she needs to be of 17 years of age, as on 31st December 2018. In addition, there is no upper age limit for candidates to apply for admission in MBBS in China.
A candidate from India wishing to pursue MBBS from China needs to have qualified the National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test (NEET), an entrance examination in India that is mandatory for students aspiring to study graduate medical courses and dental courses in either government or private medical colleges and dental colleges respectively. He or she must have a valid NEET scorecard.
For international students, it is a matter of respite that they need not take any separate entrance examination of the university concerned, in order to secure a seat in MBBS in that university.
As far as Higher Secondary is concerned, a candidate must have Physics, Chemistry and Biology as the subjects in 10+2 or equivalent. Besides, if the candidate belongs to General category, he or she must have secured a minimum of 70 percent marks in these three subjects from a recognized institution and if the candidate happens to be from a reserved category, securing 40 percent marks in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics is sufficient for securing a seat in MBBS in China.
IELTS and TOEFL are two examinations that are designed to test a candidate’s skills in English language. These exams are considered to be benchmarks and students need to qualify either of these in order to be eligible for pursuing any course in a foreign country. However, in this department, things are easy and smooth for international medical aspirants since no medical university or institution in China requires an aspirant to clear either of these exams. ‘Easy going’ might be the correct phrase to be used here, wouldn’t it be?
Many medical universities across the globe seek donation in lieu of offering a seat in MBBS to a candidate. The donation is in monetary terms. That is a matter of concern, especially for those students who cannot afford to shell out exorbitant amounts of money for securing admission in any course. Things are, however, different in China. No medical university demands or accepts donations in any form in lieu of allotting MBBS seats to students. On similar lines, no capitation fees is ever demanded by students in any medical university in China. This is a huge relief for international students.
All the aforementioned points regarding the eligibility for MBBS in China point to the fact that securing a seat in MBBS in any Chinese medical university is relatively quite simple and feasible. What makes the deal even sweeter is the fact that the fee that is charged by the medical institutions in China is quite affordable vis-a-vis the fees charged by medical institutions in India. All these factors together make China the most preferred destination for MBBS aspirants across the globe.
