The Times of India was quoted as saying that the number of Indian students arriving in China to study medicine has increased significantly since 2010-11 and added that experts ascribe it to the world’s most populous country’s amendments to admission criteria. Nitish Gupta, a Tianjin Medical University student, was accompanied by 44 other Indians to undertake studies in medical degree in China. He was quoted by Global Times as saying that China was perhaps the best study destination in terms of affordability.
China had begun welcoming foreign students to undertake study in medicine since 2004. Following that, the number of Indian students arriving in China in the past decade had increased. According to statistics from Project Atlas, the number of Indian students pursuing their education in China touched 16,694 by 2015 as against only 765 in 2005. The Times of India is also said to have reported that the number of Indian students in China in 2016 was 18,171 compared to 18,015 of them in the UK. Another Indian student now pursuing doctoral studies at China’s Renmin University was quoted as telling the Global Times that many students from India are keen on pursuing engineering courses in China as well.
He said that although Indian students, just like their Chinese counterparts, would want to study in the US and the UK, they would get admissions more easily in China.
Gan Yachun, an Indian student pursuing her doctoral program in Earth and Environmental Sciences in Xi’an Jiaotong University, was quoted by the Xinhua News Agency as saying that the world’s second-largest economy offers generous scholarships and the research center at her university has cutting-edge laboratory facilities and top-class researchers. Gan said that she hoped to use what she learned in China to help in improving India.
