Xinjiang Medical University began to recruit overseas students in 1992. In 2001, we began to recruit undergraduate students abroad on a large-scale, most of who came from Pakistan, the United Arab Emirates, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the United States of America, the United Kingdom, Japan, Korea, Sudan, and Kazakhstan. Approximately 150 students are admitted every year. At present, 800+ overseas students from 18 countries are studying for their bachelor’s, Master’s and doctorate degrees at Xinjiang Medical University.
In order to improve the academic level and management of overseas students, Xinjiang Medical University set up International Education College in June, 2004. An excellent teaching staff with a strong sense of responsibility and a great deal of teaching experience will offer the best possible education for overseas students. The International Education College has not only incorporated advanced educational techniques from foreign educational systems, but also makes good use of its own advantages and characteristics. All subjects can be taught in English. The International Education College has created a unique educational environment for international students, and created excellent circumstances in which every foreign student can enjoy their study and life. It has been listed among the largest colleges in the scale of international education in China.
