I was lucky enough to get the money loaned from my family. I think the uni do offer scholarships or a reduction on fees for performance in exams sometimes. But there isn’t any governmental financial help for it at all. If your grades are satisfactory and for example your ukcat score was what affected your application this year, I would try applying again next year if I were you (especially with the uncertainty surrounding GDC registration at the moment). Obviously depends on your current situation though.

In light of Brexit, if you study at the Madrid Uni, when you come back to the UK do you have to take the ORE exam or is this uni approved?

As the link says, at the moment if you are scheduled to graduate from Madrid after the 31st of December 2022 then you will not automatically qualify for registration with the GDC. As to what will happen, it seems like even the GDC don’t exactly know at the moment. You may have to take the ORE, or they may have a completely new/different process.

Hi there! Really sorry for not responding sooner, I haven’t been on here for ages. On the whole I really did enjoy my time at UEM. From what I’ve heard from people at UEV the general consensus is that Madrid is better, unless you’d prefer to live in Valencia city-wise. Cardenal Herrera is also a fair bit more expensive than Uem and from what I’ve heard the facilities are a little more dated. Same with UCV in terms of the facilities and labs etc.
hey there, thanks a lot for sharing your experiences with us. Hope you'll see my post soon... How was your application process? Some say theres an exam called selectividad, some say no.. I cant be sure.... I wanna study in Valencia.

Hi! When I applied there was just an informal interview and confirmation of my grades in school etc. The process may have changed since then though, and I have no idea if Valencia do they same thing or have their own admission procedure. Sorry I can’t be of more help.

Hey I’m starting dentistry in UEM next year, I was just wondering how much extra is it for the equipment each year? And what are the chances of me not being able to get patients?

Hey! I’m going to UEM to study dentistry this September for 5 years through English. I was wondering if I could get your number so I could talk to you on WhatsApp about what it was like? I have a few questions about exams,accommodation,paying for extra equipment and the practical side of things? Thank you, Zoe!

The timetables depend on the year and the semester as all the classes are different. Think there used to be some sample timetables hidden on their website somewhere but I think they’ve recently updated it so I’m not sure where anything is on it anymore.

Yes you have to buy equipment for labs and clinics, starting in first year for really basic stuff. The exam periods are usually halfway through a semester and at the end of the semester. They also have smaller assessments and lab exams thrown in throughout the semester.

Have a read through my initial post on here if you haven’t already. It had all the answers to your questions in it and might have more answers for any other questions that come to you later.
