Dentistry in Poland - study medical courses at Polish universities
Dentistry in Poland is a very popular course among international students
Dentistry in Poland is a great course to study. As we all know, medicine and dentistry are long courses, and as a result, tuition costs can be somewhat prohibitive. Nevertheless, both medicine and dentistry are subjects which combine academic qualifications with an excellent career path.
Once you have qualified, you have multiple options before you: specialisation, hospital roles, research , working as a general practitioner, opening your own dental practice etc . Getting accepted onto a course needs preparation and excellent secondary school grades, since competition is extremely fierce, wherever you study.
Why study medicine or dentistry in Poland?
The Polish education system has been ranked tenth best in the world and boasts some of Europe’s oldest and most prestigious universities. The government has invested a great deal of money in upgrading university resources and ensuring that cutting-edge technology and the very latest equipment is available in every, nationally-supervised, educational institution.
The quality of teaching and research is high and, of course, Polish qualifications are recognised all over the world, and if you get a medical or dental degree in Poland, this will allow you to practise internationally.
Is it expensive to live in Poland while studying medicine or dentistry?
Poland is not an expensive country, and your cost of living while studying medicine or dentistry will therefore be significantly lower than in other European countries. Tuition fees on both courses are between 11000 and 13,500 euros a year, whereas international students who study in the UK will pay upwards of £35,000 per year, and costs in the US can be as high as $70,000 a year. As you can see, Polish tuition fees are far more affordable.
In addition, Poland is not an expensive country for students, when compared with the rest of Europe , and it is perfectly possible to live on 600 euros a month, if you manage to find reasonably priced accommodation – since utilities and rent make up 35 per cent of your monthly budget.
