Hi,

I have an interview from a UK dental school but even after the gruelling admissions process, I want to leave it all to study Dentistry in Spain (In English). It's not about the grades - I can get the 3 As.. but it's about the chance to become bilingual, learn a new culture and live out my comfort zone. Skills that are sought out by employers in any field. I also believe it will make me more of a well-rounded person etc.

The degree is recognised by the GDC and I can come back to the UK upon graduation.

I have a dilemma to make, regarding choosing a UK school or Spain. Please give me some thoughts, pros and cons etc.


Thank you!

From what I know Germany, Sweden, Finland, Denmark and Switzerland have the best dentistry schools, if you want to leave the UK. But it's up to you, do you find Spain to be more attractive?

Studying abroad is an amazing experience as it offers you many opportunities and you grow so much as a person. Becoming bilingual is also a huge advantage and if the degree is recognized in the UK, that's even better. Just make sure that the quality of the education meets your expectations.

Fully agree with you... But the thing with Spain is that the degree is taught in English whereas in the Western EU countries you have stated, it is taught in the native language.

That being said, you still need to learn Spanish for patient contact but that is a challenge I'd relish.. + I'd have 2/3 years to do it.

Thank you for your response!

Lmao. You're hilarious.

In Europe, their dental schools are better, comparing to Spain. Of course the UK has King's College and UCL which are also one of the best in the world in rankings, but the OP doesn't seem to want to go in the UK ''but even after the gruelling admissions process, I want to leave it all to study Dentistry in Spain''.
