UEM offers a five-year degree in Dentistry leading to the title of Título Oficial de Grado en Odontologia (equivalent to the UK BDS). The qualification is recognised throughout the European Union and beyond. Graduates will be entitled to work in the United Kingdom, Ireland and other countries upon completion of their studies and necessary practical experience. In accordance with European standards in higher education, the five-year dentistry programme consists of 300 ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System).

The programme is taught in English throughout all five years. Students will need to know Spanish in order to work with patients and will be required to have achieved B2 level by the beginning of their third year.

Applications in 2021

The application process for September 2021 is now open. Admissions will continue throughout Spring 2021 until the course is full. As of 19th February 2021 there are still places available but we anticipate that it will be full by March. Please contact us if you want to apply. This webinar recording from June 2020 gives lots of information about the application process and other aspects of studying dentistry at UEM.

Entry Requirements for Dentistry 2021

You need to have 3 A levels to apply. Access to HE qualifications are not recognised in Spain but if you have an appropriate BSc we might be able to take this into consideration. In the past, it was possible for students with poor A level performance to gain a place at UEM but those days are gone. We expect you would need around BBC to include biology and chemistry. It is possible to apply with BTECs but you have limited chance of success.

If you don't meet the entry requirements, UEM also offers a foundation course in the health sciences. If you successfully complete this one-year course, you will be eligible for first-year entry into dentistry in the following year with around 30 ECTS recognised (ie. roughly half an academic year). This will be the most suitable option for you if you have A' levels of below CCC.

Transfers from other Dental Schools

In previous years, this has been possible however it appears that there might be a chance to do this in 2021. Please contact us if you might be interested in this opportunity.

It is not possible to apply for a first-year place and then request a transfer later in the year. If transfer places should open up (and there is no guarantee or likelihood that they will) you will be excluded from applying if you already have a first-year offer.

Graduate Entry after completion of a BSc Biomedical Science

We are often asked by students from UK universities if they can skip the first year after completing a Bachelor of Science degree, usually in Biomedical Sciences.  In the past, this has been possible but at this time it is extremely unlikely that any Spanish dental school will offer recognition of any credits. However, this might change in 2021. We are awaiting final details of the procedure because it will certainly be different from the when happened previously.

Please be advised that we will not enter into any discussion of your chances of "graduate entry" without seeing your most recent transcript as well as details of your A' levels or equivalent.

The Application Process for UEM Dentistry 2021

You can request an application form from us. Once this is complete and you have provided us with your full academic history, we will contact the university to discuss your application.

There is no entrance exam for dentistry but there are language assessment tests and a psychometric test that form part of the application process but are not part of the selection procedure. We can provide full guidelines of the application process upon request.

You can apply directly to UEM if you so desire but it will work out more expensive than applying through A Star Future. This might sound unlikely but it is true.

If you have already applied through UEM directly and you find yourself getting stuck, please do not contact us for assistance. It will not be possible for us to help you.
