• Studying in Spain

After three years of hard work in school, and a complete set of 4 failed dentistry applications, I thought the dream was over. However, soon after wards I found out about UEM Valencia, a dentistry degree recognized by the British General Dental Council which would enable me to practice in Britain. I took a loan from Caixa Catalunya (who have an agreement with UEM) to fund my degree and three months into the course I feel this is the best decision I have ever made.

Currently I struggle a little with the language barrier but my Spanish is improving and the course is taught in English so there is no rush to learn Spanish. With slightly lower entrance demands it is easier to get enrolled in a UEM for dentistry in comparison to British Dental Schools but yet the quality of teaching is not compromised.

The nightlife here is also great which was one of the major concerns before I came because 5 years of all work and no play would be dreadful. An option I'd strongly recommend to anyone who is unfortunately rejected from dental schools back home.
