    Heyy

    Yeah I applied through M&D as well & now I'm studying Med at Comenius 1st year, i really like it here, & I'd advise it over Prague. I applied to both Charles & Comenius and got in to both unis but i chose Comenius because of the reality that Charles can be quite unfair and has an extremely high ratio of kicking people out each year as i have heard from many students studying at Comenius who managed to transfer here after being kicked out, anyways if there's anything you'd like to know just pm me or something

    Tution fees have to be from your own pocket i'm afraid uk doesnt give us loans to study abroad trust me all my english friends here tried it including me, i'm just lucky my parents are helping me with the money

    teaching in comenius is really good, i'm really glad i came here, i mean at the start i was like wtf are they speaking english?! hahaaa no but it is actually really good, and omg dissection week was AMAZINGGGG!!!!!!!

    I finish 1st year at the end of this week best thing about this uni = longer hols than any uk uni, 6months uni, 6months free every year

    has anyone applied to study dentistry for 2012 entry at Cardenal Herrera University, Valencia? and is anyone currently studying there? If so are they on/have done the pre-med offered in london?
    What are my chances of getting in if i do not do the pre-med course? I have completed two years of study in the uk doing dentistry previously.

    Hiya all, this is an informative thread. I need some help... I'm really interested to apply for dentistry abroad in Czech but I fear the stories I keep hearing about high drop out rates. Can anyone confirm this ...are they being pushed or are they failing themselves by not studying?

    sorry - i know this is probably a bit late, but ye, i've also heard that they have really high drop out rates. i have a friend who used to study there, he goes it was about 40 or 45%, which in my eyes is ridiculous.

    i have some friends at Cardenal Herrera, and they don't like it there. they said the fees are too expensive and apparently it is really badly located. they also said that even though they did pre-med, the amount of money it cost them was not worth it, plus they started in first year, so there was no point wasting a year (and money) doing the pre-med course.

    i did some research, and basically found out about 3 universities, cardenal herrera, UCV and UEM. I went out to have a look at all three universities and found UEM to be the best. It is better located than Cardenal herrera, and also a lot cheaper (13000 euros at UEM compared to 20000 euros at Cardenal Herrera.

    after looking at every aspect, i decided to apply to UEM. i had to go through an agency, the website is: www.gdc-spain.com

    hope this helps.

    I've heard similar things and have dealt with M&D for trying to get into Cardenal Herrera. From my experience, I would strongly advise against it. The fees are higher, the location is worse and the agency are unfriendly.

    I went for UEM as the fees are more affordable and the Uni is right near the shops and clubs. I went through the same agency; they were helpful, they're gonna find me a flat with my budget and settle me in.

    how long did it take you to receive your offer? cos mine was pretty quick.. within a week of sending the necessary documentation and application forms.

    I went to go check out the facilities at UEM and it is pretty much top notch. I've received my offer today, really pleased; i'm happy to answer any questions if anyone wants to ask me anything as I've pretty much asked them all myself. Don't really use student room that often but I thought I'd let people know about the Uni as it gives a great opportunity for students to go and study Dentistry abroad...

    I am going to Universidad Catolica de Valencia next year as it looked the best choice of the two I visited (I thought UEM involved studying in Spanish). Also, the representative, A Star Future, was a lot more straightforward than some others. It looks like there are going to be loads of dentists in Valencia this year!
