Medical Examination

All foreigners need to take the medial examination in order to study in China. Some Universities, such as Beihang University, require students to sent the medical exam when they apply for the program, for others you can do it when you arrive in China. It is a requirement for the X (study) visa. You can do the physical medical exam in your home country, or when you arrive in China. We normally advise students to take the medical exam in China if they don’t need to do it before because sometimes the medical tests taken in students home country are not accepted if there is a mistake or not in the correct format and students need to take the medical test again in China.

To take the medical exam in China, it takes about 30-40 minutes, and the fee is approximately 300-700 RMB. Since every incoming student needs to do it, normally the University will organise for a group of students to go to the center together at the start of each semester. Remember that because every student needs to do it at the start of each semester, the centre can become quite busy, so it is better to arrive earlier.
