The most affordable dentistry studies in Europe

Students from all over the world can study dentistry in the English language in various countries of Europe. Studies in the English language are associated with tuition fees which are different in various countries. You can find the overview of tuition fees below – the fee covers studying for year (2 semesters). Dentistry studies might be having a different length (they take either 5 years or 6 years) – this information you will find next to each Faculty. There are no graduate programs of Dentistry offered as per my knowledge. Only joined degrees are mentioned below (Bachelor + Master) ending in Doctor of Dental medicine. Please note that faculties of medicine usually offer both courses (General medicine and Dental medicine), however in some countries (e.g. Hungary) the program is offered by faculties of dentistry.
