CEU Cardinal Herrera University in Valencia (UCH) makes it possible to start your studies in the upcoming winter term without quotas. You can thus study dentistry without detours at one of Europe’s finest private universities. The coursework is offered entirely in English. You will be taught the specialist terminology from the beginning of the course. One important part of the application process at UCH is the Skype interview. MediStart, as an official agency for European applicants to the university, can help provide the appropriate preparation.
The quality of instruction is particularly high at UCH. You will benefit from instructional spaces with modern furnishes, the latest computer equipment, and small-group instruction. Overall, the university has approx. 1,000 faculty members. In the practical part of the training, each tutor only works with two students, ensuring direct contact and a high level of learning success.
The university enjoys international popularity. The medical school has about 10% foreign students, including many from the US and Western and Northern Europe, such as Germany, Great Britain, and Sweden. As a student of dentistry or veterinary medicine, you will have regular access to ultramodern clinical equipment so that you gain experience with cutting-edge technology and medicine. You will also have regular contact with clinics and dental or veterinary practices so that you can consolidate your theoretical knowledge with frequent and early hands-on experiences. This practical approach is an important training focus at UCH, which organises more than 2,700 internship placements for its students. Since the university is privately owned, it charges tuition of €10,300 per semester for students in the dentistry programme and €7,530 for veterinary students.
CEU Cardinal Herrera University of Valencia
UCH has been known for decades for the high quality of its instruction and medical training, always adapted to the state of the art. It is a part of the San Pablo Foundation for non-profit educational institutions, a group of more than 25 educational institutions that has existed for more than 80 years.
Internationally, the university enjoys an ever-growing popularity. Foreign students also benefit from a special service from the university’s own English-speaking hospitality service to help you settle in your new city and to ensure that everything runs smoothly. You will thus have a constant contact who can explain anything and everything in English and help you in both private and academic matters.
Many of the university professors also often work in the clinical settings where you will be gaining your practical experiences. This helps to ensure contact during both theoretical and practical training, all of which has a positive impact on your learning outcomes. Another important point is quality assurance. UCH has all of its programmes and its professors regularly evaluated. This ensure that everything meets the latest standards.
Studying in Valencia
With 800,000 inhabitants, Valencia is one of Spain’s larger cities. It is located on the east coast of the country and has a very mild climate. With an average temperature of 17°C, this is the perfect spot to enjoy a Mediterranean lifestyle. The infrastructure meets the standards of any major European city and you can quickly and easily reach any location within the city. The campus of the University of Valencia has its own rail connection; it lies in Moncada a bit outside the city centre surrounded by beautiful orange groves. The city has direct flights all over Europe, including Frankfurt, London, Stockholm, or Amsterdam.
Valencia, with more than two thousand years of history, offers much for culture lovers. Ancient buildings such as the Silk Exchange from 1533, museums, parks, and monuments adorn the cityscape. The approx. 80,000 students also have everything else one could desire: clubs, culinary specialities, and aquatic sports are just a small selection of what’s on offer. As a student, you will be eligible for many discounts, starting with public transport, and you are eligible to participate in the university’s comprehensive recreation programmes. These include sports such as football, volleyball, and basketball, mountain bike riding, and even sailing.
For your application to UCH, you will need a university entrance qualification and proficiency in English. But if you’re just finishing school this year, you can already get started on your application. Instead of your final grades, your eligibility will be determined during an interview.
MediStart will coach you for the interview, compile all the required documents, and take care of the further application steps, all to maximise your chances of getting a placement in Valencia.
