Study Chinese Medicine in China

Postby cyclotronmajesty » Fri Sep 02, 2016 2:06 pm

Hello everyone,

I'm interested in studying Chinese medicine in China, and i'm trying to figure out how to finance it. I see there are no loans available for Americans studying in China. My next idea was to work and go to school, but I heard that can be a problem with the visa. I don't have a huge bank account waiting for me to fund my long years of education in China unlike perhaps other lucky students. How do people go to China and study things like Chinese Medicine?
I saw on one site you can work up to 12 hours a week with university permission. I also understand there are scholarships. But I assume scholarships go to the student with the best GPA. Mine is 2.9, and I have a bachelor's degree in Sustainability from Arizona State University. I've wanted to study Chinese Medicine my whole life. I'm now almost 34. I feel like i'm running out of time. I need help making this dream come true.

I think you are allowed to work 20 hours a week on an 'X' (student visa).

However, you would need the money to pay upfront to get z-visa - but university fees aren't anything like the states, you can get some pretty decent deals - depending on where you go...

Taught in English, around 5000 dollars a year in fees, not massively unaffordable.

What I would do - if it was me - would be to go to Saudi Arabia and work for a agency that recruits teachers, it isn't brilliant money but you'll probably come away with 25000 dollars if you last the year and don't go spending it on weekend trips to Bahrain - and that should cover three years of living and working in China (and of course, you can work once you get to China).

Good luck with that - I think that's a brilliant idea and something to aim for.
