Wow, first post :D

Will update soon on the rest. Not in China, yet.


Application Process

Applied directly to the Admission Officer of the International Education School. Google, or PM me if you want the email address.

CMU is prompt in replies. From April 19 2018 when I emailed a generic International Education School email address, to acceptance letter on May 7 2018, two-and-a-half weeks is optimal turnaround, don't you think?


No fees up-front. But now to secure a place USD 1,000 deposit is required by May 20 2018. Will pay via a trusted (used many times for big and small transactions) online forex company. PM me if you want names.


On documents, I supplied:

Most recent undergraduate biomedical degree

First undergraduate degree in IT

Financial statement (I specifically said I earned all these on my own to earn brownie points with the admission board)

(Strong) recommendation letter from a lecturer

Personal statement



Visa presumably will be X2? Now waiting for JW202 and the formal admission notice. Been reading up on visa paperwork but mostly waiting for Uni to spoon-feed moi hehe


Course and Funding

5-year (excluding one year internship) MBBS in English to start in September 2018. For Australians, I have checked that China Medical University exists on the authoritative Australian Medical Council https://www.amc.org.au/assessment/list-of-medical-schools and from there the medical school is linked to https://search.wdoms.org/home/SchoolDetail/F0001235 . Under "Program Details" tab, the school is shown to teach MBBS in Chinese, Japanese and English.


Tuition fee RMB 40,000 p.a. Will check out scholarships (especially the ones based on performance) next year.


Coming soon ...

I am glad you did not launch into a tirade on CMU, as happened in the other thread. Thank you for sharing that CMU's teaching quality and resources are more than enough for you and I, even if the Uni is not the best in the whole of China. If it was enough for you, for certain it will be enough for moi.


Cannot afford the best in every(any)thing. That Bentley Mulsanne Speed would be eight times more expensive than my entire medical school education.

Just to update for posterity. After you have paid the USD 1,000 deposit, the school will not check it until the deadline. And if it falls on the weekend, then so be it, the admissions officer will check it on that date and then email you the receipt. But, what if it has bounced, I hear you ask? Well, according to the online forex personnel that I emailed, no news is usually good news. But you should call the admissions officer first, failing which you should call the International Exchange Center. They are next door to each other. Yes, obviously I did that.


From the dates on the paperwork, the Admission Notice can be issued two days after they have issued the receipt for the deposit but the JW202 will take up to a week. Hence, by a week after you got the receipt, check with the admissions officer. It took six days from Shenyang to Singapore to Brisbane via DHL. Kudos to DHL for working through the weekend.
