It also said that the students and parents should directly contact the universities for fee structure and published the list of 45 accredited universities. It also said that it was not advisable for students to take admission in any other universities apart from the published ones as the Chinese official communication clearly mentions that only the mentioned 45 universities are authorized to issue medical degrees to foreign students. Furthermore it stated that the English Language skills of Chinese teachers was one of the major challenges based on the feedback from past students.
