Soram Sanathoiba, a boy student from India, here is the story about his study at Jilin University, Changchun city.
01 Why study MBBS in China?
China is one of the fastest growing economies in the world right now. China's rapid development in their infrastructure, manufacturing and technology sectors is also why I was interested to come here. An example is Taobao, I can order any electronic parts that I want from there.
02 Why choose Jilin University?
It's one of the top universities in China. It is a leading national key comprehensive university under the direct jurisdiction of China's Ministry of Education. It's known for their research projects in automobile engineering, chemistry, computer science, electrical engineering, medical science and biology. A lot of students from all over the world also come study here to study, and I wanted to experience the multi-cultural education as well.
03 What difficulties did you face at the beginning?
I didn't have that much difficulties like some of my friends. I liked the food here and I also liked the cold weather. The only difficulties I had was the language barrier and getting around the city.
04 Do you like Changchun city?
Unlike most people, the cold weather is what I like about Changchun. Because of the cold weather, there isn't a lot of insects here. I really hate insects, especially mosquitoes. The Chinese people that I've met are also very polite and friendly so far. The expat community here in Changchun is also surprisingly really big, I love hanging out with people from different cultures and backgrounds. My mom visited Changchun back in 2017 and she also liked the weather and the atmosphere here.
05 What did you do after classes?
I love working out at the gym. I also love hanging out with my friends and talk about our future plans. I'm into photography and videography. I build drones and I participate drone racing events in Changchun. I also love taking aerial footages around Changchun.
06 What is your plan in the future?
I plan to continue studying and stay here for a couple more years in China and see whether I can get a job and continue my life here.
