I applied to dentistry during college and I got rejected by all my unis. I decided to take a gap year and re-apply to dentistry, and got rejected again. I got A*AA in my A-levels (A in chem and bio, A* in spanish)

Honestly I've never been so disheartened, I wasn't even offered interviews which just makes me angry because I feel like I wasn't given a proper chance.

I've been considering applying to something else but honestly I don't want to, and the thought of studying something other than dentistry makes me miserable. I genuinely want to do it.

So, after hours and hours of breakdowns and searching for solutions, I came across a university in Spain (Universidad Europa de Madrid) that offers a dentistry programme in English. The degree you'll get at the end of it is equivalent to the UK BDS one.

I've even had a look at possible financial aid and I might be eligible for a scholarship, and I'd be able to get a grant to help me fund it.

I speak Spanish and honestly this seems like a dream to me, I'm in love with everything to do with Spain and studying my dream subject in my dream country is so surreal?

I just wanna know if anyone else has also considered doing this or what you guys think about this. Is it worth re-applying for a third time in the UK or should I just go for Spain? I'm so confused on what to do.

You should try to do both so that you have a second choice..

I just got accepted today to EUM Madrid! Feels like a dream really I too took a gap year, I wish I applied earlier. Either way its never too late to pursue your dream career. So apply to Spain + everywhere else youre interested in.

If dentistry is all you want to do, go ahead and apply. You will be very happy with your decision once school begins and after you graduate! You will have had the experience to live in Spain for 5 years, learn their culture and language and overall get a life experience all WHILE studying to become a dentist. Its a win win.

Thank you for your reply! Are you also studying dentistry?

I don’t think I’ll be considering it anymore because it’s a lot more expensive than I thought unfortunately. What’s the admissions process like though? And I hope you don’t mind me asking but (if you are studying dentistry) what are the tuition fees? It’s just because I’ve barely managed to find any information online.

Another thing that is concerning me is studying abroad after Brexit, do you think this will be too much of an issue?

Congrats on your offer btw!!
