This decision of China will affect the Indian students studying MBBS there. Currently, a record 21000 students are studying in Chinese colleges.
Beijing, PTI. Foreign students studying MBBS in China have faced a lot of difficulty. The education ministry here has said that out of more than 200 medical colleges in China, only 45 colleges will be able to teach MBBS in English. Apart from these, MBBS will be taught in Mandarin Chinese in all other colleges.
Most foreign students come to China to study MBBS in English. A large number of these students live in India. Students from India and other Asian countries like to come here due to being cheaper than medical colleges in America, UK and Australia. At present, more than 23,000 Indian students are studying in different courses.
21 thousand students of India are doing MBBS
At the same time, more than 28,000 students from Pakistan are studying in China. In total, there are about five lakh foreign students studying in the colleges here. Out of 23,000 students in India, 21,000 are studying MBBS, the highest ever.
Only 45 colleges will study English
The Indian embassy here has also shared information about the impact of the decision of the Ministry of Education of China on Indian students. The embassy said that in addition to the 45 colleges placed on the list, foreign students will also have to study in Mandarin for MBBS in any other medical college. However, it is not clear whether foreign students will be allowed to study MBBS in Mandarin in all colleges out of the list.
Mandarin learning to complete the course
Currently, the Embassy has removed from its website the name of all colleges where MBBS will not be taught in English. After the new rule, Indian students who have taken admission in other colleges are learning Mandarin to complete the course.
