Maldivian Government is in the process of signing an Agreement on Educational Cooperation under which the number of scholarships offered to the Maldives will be increased.

Together with scholarship opportunities offered mainly to the developing countries, Chinese Government has also opened its educational doorways to the international community who wish to study in China on self-finance.

Though there are number of areas where Maldivians can utilize the facilities provided by Chinese Universities / Institutes, it is only the field of medicine which has become most popular among Maldivians. This is reflected by the number of Maldivian students joining Dalian Medical University (DMU) in China under self-financing. Currently, there are more than 45 self-financed Maldivian students studying medicine in DMU.
