You don't need to bring a health certificate at all. What they will check at the airport is just your visa. Once you are here, you will go to the hospital which will deliver your health certificate. There's in only one in Beijing.
I do have a Physician's Report Form saying I don't have TB or HIV or anything, but that's from 2010. Can anyone give me more information on this?
They even won't looked at it. They'd want you to do your check up exams here in China.
I had to get a health check for the z-visa/foreign expert's permit back when I was first coming to China (and involved a checklist that included stuff like 'Do you have the bubonic plague?)' but that was just for getting the visa/invite, but if you've already got the student visa then I guess you're fine and you'll just have to go do the local health check.
Not sure if your university will cover it...but from what I remember (which is sketchy, so don't trust this too much), the cost is around 800rmb.
