List of MOE China approved Medical Universities for 2024-2025

Updated: Dec 26, 2023

MBBS in China is taught by two kinds of Universities, which are as follows:

  1. MOE China Listed Universities which are allowed to teach MBBS degree to International students in English Medium.

  2. Non-Listed Universities which are also allowed to teach MBBS degree to International students, however, they are allowed to teach International students in Chinese Medium.

Now, being a student aspiring to Study MBBS in China, you must be thinking about which of the two kinds of Universities should you opt for. Logically speaking, you should choose option 1 - The MOE China Listed Universities which have been allowed by the Ministry of Education, China to teach MBBS in English Medium, because you being an International student do not speak Chinese and learning a language based on characters instead of letters might seem scary to you at first. However, to be honest, choosing a Listed or a Non-Listed usually depends on what part of the world you come from and if the Medical Council of your home country accepts you studying at a Non-Listed University or not. For Example, Pakistani students usually go for Non-Listed Universities (Click to check the List of Medical Universities in China on List A of Pakistan Medical Council - PMC), mostly because they are cheaper compared to the Listed Universities. On the other hand, students coming from India and Bangladesh need to Study MBBS at those Universities which are accepted by Medical Council of India (MCI)/National Medical Council (NMC) and Bangladesh Medical and Dental Council (BMDC) respectively, Moreover, the Listed Universities have been allowed a specific quota for accepting international students to be taught in English. Be aware though while choosing a Listed University now a days, since the MOE Listed Universities have limited seats to accept on English taught MBBS program, they have now come up with another strategy. The MOE Listed Universities also offer Bilingual/Chinese Medium programs which is relatively cheaper (But still expensive) compared to the English Taught MBBS program. The Non-Listed Universities on the other hand do not generally have a specific quota to accept international students. However, whether you choose a Listed University or a Non-Listed University to pursue your MBBS degree, studying Chinese language is a compulsion for every international student. This is because it is absolutely essential for your living in China. You will need to interact with people in Mandarin (Chinese Language) for your everyday living. Similarly being a student studying MBBS in China, you will have to interact with patients in Mandarin (Chinese Language also known as Pu Tong Hua / 普通话) at the hospitals, thus making it absolutely necessary for international students to learn the Chinese language. Find out, is it really necessary for Pakistani students to study MBBS at MOE Listed universities.

MBBS in China at MOE Listed Universities costs between RMB 30,000 and RMB 80,000 per annum which includes both the tuition and accommodation fees. This equals to PKR 12.6 Lakh to PKR 33.6 Lakh per annum, depending on the university you choose to study at.
