Chinese universities are witnessing a record number of Indian students studying medicine in China. China is attracting a large number of foreign students, especially from India and other Asian countries, because of the more affordable tuition fees in China than in the educational institutions in Britain, America, and Australia. At present, the number of Indian students in China has nearly exceeded 23000, and has been ranked in the top 10 of foreign students in China, and is increasing year by year. According to data, the number of Indian students in China in 2016 is 13500. By comparison, the growth rate is very fast, and it is expected to reach 30000 in 2022. Indian students’ interest in Chinese medical courses is increasing day by day.

2. How do Indian students study in China and what major do they study more?


With the continuous enhancement of China’s comprehensive strength and the improvement of Sino Indian relations, the exchanges between China and India have become more and more frequent. More and more Indian students choose to study in China, especially in China. The general process of studying for international students is like this.

Learning Trilogy: preview before class, listen carefully and review after class[In terms of learning materials, make good use of syllabus, books and PPT (learn self-study) and websites for learning resources (such as studocu and coursehero).] Understanding before class: read the introduction (or summary) of each chapter in the book before class, understand the general content, guess the meaning, and then search the definition of the knowledge you don’t understand through Google; Listen to the class carefully: in class, you can “understand” the class content by grabbing key words and associating memory. If the teacher’s accent is too heavy or jumping is too strong, it doesn’t matter, because this link is not so important. After class review (the most important): through the syllabus and books to understand the PPT knowledge points (books are a good thing, a large number of case studies, examples to help understand), and then use the logical chain and mind map to jump up the knowledge points, and repeat & write it, and then combined with the notes collected on the Internet, organize the notes, convenient for review before the exam.

Note: remember to take the initiative to improve Chinese. Most of the time, it’s because of language limitations. Read more, speak more, write more, practice more and get out of the comfort zone.


3. What are China’s special welfare policies for Indian students?


According to the times of India, the Chinese government has started to allow foreign students in Beijing and Shanghai to take part-time or internship jobs, but they need to obtain the necessary approval, which can be obtained from their academic institutions and immigration control agencies. In Shanghai, a pilot policy is being implemented, which allows international students to stay in China for internships or start their own businesses in a special Innovation Zone within two years after graduation.

The move by the Chinese government has facilitated more Indian students to go to China. Data show that the number of Indian students studying in China has surpassed that in the UK. In 2016, there were 18171 Indian students in China, while there were only 18015 in the UK. However, 10 years ago, the number of Indian students studying in China was only 765.


4. Why do Indians choose to study in China?


China has always been a land of etiquette and a land of wealth. It is also deeply influenced by Confucian culture. Politeness is a good quality of Chinese people. With the continuous enhancement of China’s national strength, science and technology and military strength, more and more foreigners choose to study in China to explore the mysteries of China and learn Chinese culture. In the world, India and China often compare with each other. You are better than me today. I’m better than you tomorrow, and the international relations between the two countries are not particularly friendly. However, the most popular tourist country in India is China, not only because they are very close, but also because they think that China’s tourism is not only fun, but also good environment, green mountains and green waters, as well as China’s long cultural history.


4.1 China stresses equality for all.

China is a country with ancient civilization and etiquette. There is no discrimination against gender. We pay attention to equality between men and women and equality for all.


4.2 The tuition of studying in China is cheap and cost-effective.

In China, tuition is only a symbolic charge. For example, medical students in China spend only 255000 yuan during the four-and-a-half-year semester and one-year internship, which is more cost-effective than the 200000 dollars spent in India.


4.3 Set up various scholarships.

In order to encourage foreign students to study in China, the government has also provided considerable scholarships in some subjects, which is also a great attraction for many Indian students from poor families.


4.4 The teaching equipment and teaching quality of Chinese schools are strong.


5. What should Indian students pay attention to?

5.5 social and cultural psychological preparation

Before you leave, please don’t neglect the psychological preparation of social culture. It’s better to think more about the possible problems and consider the methods and steps to prevent or solve these problems, which will help you spend your study life in China happily.

We should eliminate the discomfort caused by cultural differences. When you first entered China, you will be interested in everything around you. A sense of novelty will come from you. But soon you will inevitably feel distressed because of cultural differences, such as the difficulty of language communication, different values and ways of thinking, etc. But as you gradually deepen your understanding of the surrounding environment, you will gradually learn to adapt, gradually eliminate loneliness, and feel the joy of Chinese social and cultural life.

We should eliminate the confusion and inconvenience caused by the change of lifestyle and different living habits. When you leave your homeland, parents, brothers, relatives and friends, and come to this strange place in China, you need to change your life style and habits to some extent. Because everything around us is exotic, very different from the original. Only by deepening understanding and gradually getting used to it, can we eliminate this confusion and inconvenience.


5.6 China’s climate characteristics and necessary preparations

China is located in the east of Asia, high in the West and low in the East, close to the Pacific Ocean in the East. Most of China is in the north temperate zone, and the continental monsoon climate is the common feature of the whole country.

In winter, there is a great difference in temperature between the north and the south. The average temperature difference in January between Guangzhou and Harbin is 35 ℃.

In summer and autumn, the climate in most areas is mild, sunny, and pleasant.


5.7 daily clothes

In spring and autumn, light clothes can be worn in most areas of China. Winter is cold, especially in the north of the Qinling Mountains and Huaihe River. Although dormitories and classrooms have heating equipment, they still need thick winter clothes to keep out the cold.


5.8 don’t forget to join health insurance

Students who come to China at their own expense should be covered by medical insurance and accident insurance. You can take out insurance in your own country or after you come to China.


5.9 apply for accommodation before coming to China

Chinese universities generally have dormitories for international students and free bedding. Due to different types of rooms and different prices, they must apply to the University in advance before coming to China. If you want to bring your family to China, you must get the permission of the school in advance, otherwise, you have to settle the problem by yourself. Foreign students may stay off-campus after approval, but they shall go through the registration procedures with the public security organ of their place of residence according to the regulations.


5.10 prepare enough tuition

Tuition fees are generally paid by academic year. According to the relevant laws and regulations of China, foreign students can’t get employment while studying in China, and there are few opportunities for work-study. Please prepare for the expenses of studying abroad before coming to China.


5.11 visa processing in China

Generally speaking, foreign students should come to the university with their ordinary passport and “X” visa or “F” visa for registration. Those who have been studying in China for more than six months shall apply for visa “X” with the visa application form for foreign students (JW201 or JW202), the admission notice and the physical examination record of foreigners; Those who have studied in China for less than six months shall apply for visa “F” with the visa application form for foreign students (JW201 or JW202) and the admission notice of the University; Short term overseas students who come to China in the form of groups can also apply for the “F” group visa by virtue of the invitation letters and telegrams from the authorized units.


The family members of foreign students can apply for a visa in China with a letter of invitation from the University. After they come to China, they must go to the health and quarantine department to go through the confirmation procedures of “foreigners’ physical examination records” within the prescribed time limit. Those who are unable to provide the foreign body examination record must have a physical examination at the local health and quarantine department. Those who are confirmed to be suffering from diseases that are not allowed to enter China according to the law of the people’s Republic of China after examination shall leave the country immediately and return home at their own expense.
