Sun Yat Sen University is within the top 5 Chinese universities and China has over 1000 universities. In world rankings it is a top 400 university (Good University Ranking Guide 2012 /2013). The university was founded in 1924, and named after the great leader of the Chinese democratic revolution Dr. Sun Yat Sen. For domestic students the University started conducting medical degrees in English medium in 1978.
For the first time in 2006 batch of nine students from Sri Lanka were placed at Sun Yat Sen university to study Medicine in English Medium by International Scholar Educational Services. This first batch of students graduating from San Yat Sen University returned to Sri Lanka in 2011 and sat for their ERPM (Act 16) examination. We are proud to state that out of a batch of nine students eight got through the exam and have found internships. The information we have is nationally out of over 900 medical graduates of foreign universities only less than 150 got through.
The academic curriculum of the university is regularly updated to meet the latest needs of the medical profession internationally as well as domestic requirements of China. There are 8 affiliated hospitals of the university with a capacity of nearly 10,000 beds. There are modern recreational facilities for students.

The university is located in the city of Goungzhou, about 200 Km from the Hong Kong boarder on the coast of the South China Sea. The north campus houses the medical school. It is a very picturesque campus providing an atmosphere very conducive for students undertaking higher education. The student body of the campus is very multicultural mainly with students from SAARC region.
