I do not know from where you are but I am Spanish and know a couple of people who have been to UCAM so I think I can answer. UCAM is generally considered a good university especially for the scientific and medical path, which is where dentistry lies. UCV has a better reputation here in Spain but it is better known for its Law school and similar fields. Both universities are great options and you will surely do well if you work hard. Besides, its Spain, youll have so much fun

I am from the UK Ive heard good things about valencia but going through future star will require 7k for a mandatory care package and UCAM doesnt i was wondering if murcia has alot of stuff to do as i havent heard or seen much about it and which was the better campus as ive seen they have one in cartagena aswell.

Yeah I have already paid for the care package, but I got my alevel grades last year.

On the a star future website it says:
“We know very well that predicted grades are increasingly unreliable. If you have been admitted subject to achieving ABB and you miss this target there is no obligation on our part to accept you. In previous years, students who have missed narrowly have sometimes been able to take up their place, particularly if their chemistry and biology grades are still good. If you miss the ABB target and we are not able to accept you, you will be entitled to a refund equivalent to half of the care package. Refunds are not available in any other circumstances. The application fee and deposit will be lost. In certain circumstances we might be able to hold your place open for one year but you would have to pay the deposit again. Because A levels in 2021 are likely to be awarded based on teacher assessment again we can be flexible within reason. We are not minded to block students from pursuing their dream of studying dentistry but we do need to be sensible about how we handle this situation.”

Same I was thinking good things about spain but don't know if cyprus is more organised since it is a campus uni and the 19900 euros/year cover the material fees too.

Hey
the campus in cartagena is closer to the beach and quite place but i personally prefer city life thats why I chose Murcia and the city is beautiful and you get your own personal tutor which is assigned to you to help you with any problem you have
