13. HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO APPLY FOR AN MBBBS PROGRAM?
Application fees may vary, as application processes differ from one agency to the other, however, to give you a gist through a standard application process. Step by step, we take you through a rational budget of how much you will need to apply for an MBBS program, using an approach of approximation and minimalism.
For starters, you’ll need to pay a sum of 2,300 RMB, an equivalent of 342 in dollars. That’s the fee that reaches the admission office upon submission of your health evaluation form, application form, scanned bio page of your passport and your transcripts or results. It also covers the deposit or security fee, this amount is returned to the student once the student reports to school and pays tuition fee in full, which is a measure put in place to minimize frauds who secure student visas for other purposes other than schooling. Finally, the applicant will need to pay for postage of all processed documents to be sent back to him or her. This is usually about a 100$.

15. HOW IS MBBS IN CHINA?
In terms of academics, the pressure is the same as you would experience at any other medical school elsewhere in the world, even maybe a little as learning overseas would require another level of responsibility, maturity and time management. There is also a healthy competition among students to push them to bring out the best of their abilities. Students also achieve a higher level of socialization and cultural exposure as they interact with classmates of different nationalities and backgrounds, and fun equally balances with academics, to give students a balanced mentality. A few problems may arise from geographical changes especially for students from tropical parts of the world such as Africa who might find certain seasons a little bit harsh to them, and even find it hard to go outdoors during those times. Such problems are not even long-term ones, as students learn to eventually adapt to these situations and further convert them to one of their individual strengths.
