    1. Hi Pooja,

      the age requirements for most MBBS universities is 25, but Shantou University actually still accepts students with an maximum age of 40. Unfortunately we can’t apply for this spring intake anymore but you can still apply for September intake. You can send us all your documents andwe can check if you are eligible to enter the second year directly. Just make sure to send all of these documents here: //

        1. Looking forward to your application! If you have any difficulties applying you can ask our student counselor Faraji for help, he knows quite well about this program. You can reach him via email

          1. Dear Gerrit,

            I kept on emailing farahji. I had already emailed my documents long back. I just have one simple query which is unanswered always in the email. They keep directing me to the main website. I have sent my B.Sc in Biotechnology certificates can you please clarify once and for all whether I can get admission in 2nd year directly or not? If yes , I can go ahead with the application. If no then I am wasting my time writing emails . Request you to kindly look into this urgently.


  3. Hi , Am Queen Denis ,Hoping to study medicine ,please is there a university currently accepting applications for full scholarship in their school? If yes ,how do I go about it

    1. Hi Queen,

      unfortunately scholarships for Medicine are highly competitive and small in number so we are unable to help with this. Can you let me know which country you are from? Maybe we are able to help anyway.

      An alternative would be to apply for a low-budget program. The most affordable MBBS course is offered by Hainan Medical University, more info on this here
