Study Dentistry at Universidad Europea de Madrid

UEM offers a five-year degree in Dentistry leading to the title of Título Oficial de Grado en Odontologia (equivalent to the UK BDS). The qualification is recognised throughout the European Union and beyond. Graduates will be entitled to work in the United Kingdom, Ireland and other countries upon completion of their studies and necessary practical experience. In accordance with European standards in higher education, the five-year dentistry programme consists of 300 ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System).

The programme is taught in English throughout all five years. Students will need to know Spanish in order to work with patients and will be required to have achieved B2 level by the beginning of their third year.

Applications in 2017

Applications have now closed for 2017. Our allocation is completely filled but a waiting list is in operation so please contact us to register your interest. Your chances of success now (May 2017) are quite high but the longer you leave it, the harder it will get. Please also make sure you include details of your A levels or other appropriate qualifications.

Entry Requirements for Dentisty 2017

The entry requirements are relatively modest in that you only need to have 3 A levels to apply.  BTECs and Access to HE qualifications are not recognised in Spain but if you have an appropriate BSc we might be able to take this into consideration. We only support applications from students with better than CCC but this does not change the fact that you might get in with less than this if you apply directly.

If you don't meet the entry requirements, UEM also offers a foundation course in the health sciences. If you successfully complete this one-year course, you will be eligible for first-year entry into dentistry in the following year with around 30 ECTS recognised (ie. roughly half an academic year).

Transfers from other Dental Schools

If you have already completed some dental studies at a university within the European Union we might be able to assist you with a transfer into the second year (third year is harder and any later is impossible). Please send us your transcript for an initial consideration. In the last year, we have assisted students from Polish, Czech, Slovak and Hungarian dental schools with transfers. We cannot guarantee that you will be successful but we should be able to advise you of your chances. There are still places available for transfer students in 2017

Graduate Entry after completion of a BSc Biomedical Science

We are often asked by students from UK universities if they can skip the first year after a completion a Bachelor of Science degree, usually in Biomedical Sciences. There is no dedicated graduate entry route in Spain but it is sometimes possible to get some credits recognised and thus secure some exemptions. It is extremely unlikely that sufficient credits will be recognised to enable you to go directly into the second year (this has only happened once in the last three years) but you could certainly receive some exemptions which will reduce your first-year course load and also the tuition fees.

The Application Process for UEM Dentistry 2017

You can request an application form from us. Once this is complete and you have provided us with your full academic history (please do not leave anything out, including AS level results that may not have been cashed in), we will contact the university to discuss your application.You will also need to complete some online tests of knowledge of Spanish (you don't need to know any but the university wants to know if you do

Once you have completed these tests, your application will be considered by the faculty and if you are successful, you will receive an unconditional offer to study dentistry in Madrid.
