Study MBBS in China

One of the best, MBBS abroad study destinations for Indian students is, China. Most Indian students prefer to study abroad mainly due to three major reasons

  • Low cost of education
  • Easy admission process
  • No entrance examinations

Nearly 10 lack Indian students complete their high school every year compete for 60,000 MBBS seats. As there are only about 60,000 medical college seats available in Indian medical colleges you are left with no option other than choosing to study abroad. Also, making NEET exams mandatory has reduced the scope of students in joining private and government medical colleges in India.

While choosing medical colleges abroad you must carefully go through the Medical Council of India (MCI) website to know if the college has been approved. You have to apply only to the medical colleges that are approved by MCI else you won’t be provided with the certificate.

Indian students will have to face only one major drawback on their return to India after their graduation. To register with the medical council you must take the screening test which is also mandatory. Students who clear this exam will only be allowed to practice medicine in India.

You could apply for the screening test, not more than 4 attempts. The students could avoid this screening test if they prefer to apply for PG courses abroad. Studying the PG course in India will also require NEET and a certificate from MCI.


Indian students who graduate from abroad medical colleges must have to appear for a screening test conducted by the MCI. If you wish to practice medicine in India you have to clear these exams and you have to register with the state and central boards.

Most of the students find these screening tests difficult as the exams conducted were based on general subjects. You should clearly look into the point that most students were not given proper guidance for taking the screening test. Fewer medical colleges abroad focus on both theoretical and practical classes that will be much helpful for you to take these exams.

The Chinese medical colleges are categorized into ‘A’ grade and ‘B’ grade medical colleges. It is advisable to choose from ‘A’ or ‘B’ grades. Do not opt for college with ‘C’ grade. The colleges may cost less but the educational quality will be worse.  Some of the list of medical colleges in China along with their grades given below
