The Chinese Ministry of Education (MoE) has warned that teaching MBBS courses under a bilingual curriculum in English and Chinese is ‘strictly prohibited’. According to MOE China, only 45 universities in China are qualified to teach MBBS degree in English and admit international students (including India). So, if Indian students want to pursue MBBS in English then they have to take admission in any one of these educational institutions else they have to pursue medical studies in the Chinese language.

Cost of medical studies in China ranges from INR 3 Lakh to INR 8 Lakh annually, which is the reason they are highly popular amongst the Indian and international students as they get quality education at a reasonable budget. This is a major reason why international students prefer to pursue MBBS from China. In China, Clinical Medicine is taught either in Chinese or English medium. Apart from this, Clinical Integrative Medicine is the other English medium course that includes Traditional Chinese Medicine and Western Medicine. These courses are also recognized by the Medical Council of India (MCI).

Some of the agents in India have been giving false information to Indian students and misguiding them about the bilingual courses in China. The Ministry of Education of China has issued this statement so as to make probable Indian aspirants clear about what type of medical studies they can pursue in China and not be fooled by the fraud agents. They have also issued a list of approved 45 universities which are offering a medical degree in the English medium.

Presently, more than 23,000 Indian students are pursuing higher studies in China, out of them 21000 have enrolled to study MBBS in China, which is an all-tiem high. Considering the growing interest among Indian students about Chinese medical courses, the Indian Embassy here on Monday said the Chinese Ministry of Education (MOE) has approved 45 medical colleges in the country to teach MBBS course in English to foreign students.

The Chinese MOE has also clarified that universities which are not in the list of the 45 universities should not admit foreign students for the MBBS programme to be taught in English, a press release issued by the Indian Embassy said.

“It has been clearly mentioned by the Chinese MOE that teaching MBBS course under a bilingual (English/Chinese) model is strictly forbidden. The MOE has also informed that the list of universities will be regularly reviewed and updated in due course,” it said.

Aspirants planning to pursue medical studies in China are advised to take complete information regarding the course, fee structure, and duration of the course directly from that education institution/University. Apart from this, candidates are also advised to check the status of the educational institution/university from the concerned Indian Embassy or Medical Council of India.

Dear Bandela, as the notification from the Chinese ministry, has been out in the current year, so, it is applicable from this year only. However, you can reach out to the concerned Chinese department and get clarification from them.
