Fudan University is the most authoritative institution with world-wide prestige among the top 5. But high entrance requirements and high tuition fee (about 75,000 RMB per year) may be your barrier. Additionally, the recruitment quota of Fudan is only 30 (the quota in other institutions is usually between 100 and 200). You may also encounter other inconvenience when studying at Fudan. Students from India and Pakistan in belief of Islam find it hard to make friends of the same religious belief and living habits since they belong to small group in Fudan campus. Therefore, some special needs of them, like eating halal food, may be hard to meet in the campus.

Normally, tuition fee in other institutions, including Capital Medical University (CMU), the sole one in Beijing among the 52 medical institutions, are above 40,000 RMB. To expand enrollment, CMU provides a scholarship of 7,000 RMB for each foreign students. Thus the real tuition fee for each student is 35,000 RMB.

China Medical University (CMU) is among the universities with longest education history in China. CMU is situated in Shenyang, northeastern China’s Liaoning Province. The city is renowned for its combination of antiquity and elegance, and low living cost. In 2013, the university has moved to a new site and the campus view and dorm conditions have improved greatly. Foreign graduates from CMU think highly of it for the commitment to responsibility of teachers and high standard semi-military management of foreign students’ life and study. In the past few years, CMU provides regular attendance sheets and academic performance of foreign student sent by SAC for their parents so that the parents can get first-hand information of students’ performance at university.
