Dear Students and Friends:
When beginning a crucial period in your lives, which is the selection of studies and the University where you are going to gain the academic formation, you should make each decision having in mind that it will affect your personal and professional future.
When making that choice you should take into consideration all possible information about University at which you would like to study: its history, reality and possibilities it may give you. And therefore, education is one of the most worthwhile decisions we can make.
Education, not only as field of study, but also integral education which provides professional training. Besides, education which allows to growing as a valuable person who follows rules based on Christian Humanism preached by CEU San Pablo University
The fact is that this integral education is reflected in various grounds: Firstly, in the long experience in higher education field guaranteed for more than 80 years and recognized by the society, as well as in thousands of graduates trained by our University
Secondly, in the prestigious academic staff with the firm professional and investigational experience and with the large teaching capacity. Their experience combines traditions and innovations so that they can do best to educate the students.
Thirdly, in the offer of education that is open to international experience. Our University is the first to give international bilingual grades and maintains a wide offer of student exchanges with prestigious Universities all around the world.
This international experience allows to facing the challenges posed by more and more globalized and competitive world on the national and international level.
Finally, in providing students with a variety of services, which allow them to develop maximally their talents, like Employment Orientation Centre (COIE), Language Centre, as well as a wide range of cultural and sport activities, pastorals and voluntary works
In addition, talent support is one of the distinctive features of our University, which makes an important effort to distinct students who demonstrate a huge dedication in and responsibility for their work by providing them with scholarships and other financial support.
In other words, CEU San Pablo University takes care of integral education of its students and has become a benchmark of higher education. Our pride is to follow this way, to see that our graduates are among the most qualified and recognized entrepreneurs and professionals of our state. Their example is the essence of our University.
For all these reasons, you may be sure that when making such an important decision of choosing a faculty and the University our paths will cross.
One of this year’s most positive aspects are the professors. As a foreigner on a Spanish course, I really took note of the professors’ interest in me as a student and their particular attention whenever I would ask a question. From the very beginning, you feel a certain bond with the professors, who are real Dentistry professionals and who treat us like future professionals and colleagues. They share their knowledge with us while focusing on practical cases, allowing us to gain knowledge of in-depth notions that can seem rather complex at first glance.
To me, the professor that represents this best is Ana, a professor of Introduction to Dentistry. She teaches us the basics of the dentist profession from the first year by giving us personal examples that she has seen throughout her career. An extra little bonus: she speaks French!
At CEU, the professors grant their students very personal and constant attention. The professors and their office hours are very flexible. They are very patient when it comes to explaining things and they offer support when necessary.
The professors are all excellent, but if I had to choose any favorites, I would have to say that they are: Ricardo from the Foundations of Physics I. He is an incredible teacher as well as a kind person who really knows how to explain things; Alejandro, from Introduction to Architecture who, apart from being an excellent professor, also gives you advice on books to read and tips to help you study better; Miguel Acosta from Anthropology who explains this difficult subject in a very clear and concrete way.
The installations are very convenient and they are all adapted to the student’s needs, helping us differentiate between practical and theoretical subjects. This helps you a lot with focusing on what you want to do, and the installations are wide and correspond to their function.
The professors at the University CEU San Pablo are very competent in their respective courses. They also teach us how to think critically, how to apply theory to practice and how to communicate our ideas with the rest of the group. The professors have humane and ethnic values and they try to pass these on to their students. The classes have a nice atmosphere. There is warmth and companionship; it is a safe environment based on respect.
The University CEU San Pablo grants personalized attention to the students. Every student has its personal tutor, with whom he/she can talk about the formal education or any other doubt he/she is having. The administration staff is always prepared to talk to the students as well.
Studying in Madrid is brilliant because it is a fantastic city filled with culture, history, entertainment, as well as being very safe. Living in the capital of Spain obviously has a global significance. In Madrid you can really appreciate art, the gastronomy and theatre. You will easily find university students who are really enjoying themselves, the nightclubs are great fun, and they generally provide a good environment. Madrid is one of the safest cities in Europe. There are a lot of police officers monitoring the streets ensuring the safety of the people. They are constantly at everyone’s disposal. A mobile app also exists, where it is possible to discretely contact them at any time.
Every single one of the professors at CEU shows that teaching is their calling. In every lesson this is clearly reflected in the efforts they put in and the quality we as students receive. And if we add the academic excellence to this attitude, then we honour the reputation of our university. Although I have been at CEU only a short time, I feel deep respect and admiration for my professors.
A university that is as demanding as CEU cannot allow itself to offer a service to its students training that do not generate a good level of education and development. This is why its facilities are the most complete and advanced ones; each of them are adequate for its function and allow us to realize our activities comfortably and correctly.
Why Madrid? Because it is a wonderful city that has all services, good means of transport, a lot of entertainment, great commerce, and most of all, it is a highly cultural city.
My entire process at CEU has been eased greatly thanks to the personalized attention I have received. It is nice to feel that they care for you and that you will always get help when needed.
I have grown up in a catholic frame and my studies took place in a catholic college from preschool. At home, the principles and values of being humane predominated and these were reinforced in high school. I was able to identify with CEU as the university preaches what I have aspired to my whole life.
Out of all the classes I have taken at CEU University, I appreciated the professor of the Biology course the most. She is not only focused on teaching the students, but she also has a chat with the international students during the break. She tries to understand our academic difficulties or problems with adapting to their new environment in Madrid.
The facilities at the dental practical clinic are fully equipped and highly qualified; all the students can acquire the treatment skills without concern.
Studying abroad is a very special experience for me, I can make friends who lived in foreign countries and I find people in Madrid friendly. For instance, locals are willing to lead the way if tourists are not familiar with the tourist spots.
I’m grateful to have such an opportunity to study Dentistry in Spain. It’s not just a period of studying abroad, but a chance to broaden my worldview, adapt to international conventions and becoming a real international competitive expert.

In Madrid you will find any kind of residencies: mixed, female, male, more economic, more expensive, with less or more facilities, with less or more rules… In the following link you will find a list of residencies. We recommend you to take a look at every residency’s websites and evaluate aspects such as the price, if they offer full-board or half board, the daily “in” and “out” times, the cleaning services, the distance from the campus etc. In google maps, you will clearly see the distance from your accommodation to the Schools.
Real estate agencies can help you find an individual apartment; in general they do not offer shared flats. The University does not take responsibility in case you would have any problems with the agency, we can only provide you with information about the agencies you can find in the area.
Agencies usually charge one or two months’ rent for their services.

Furthermore, some offices help students find an apartment or a room in a shared flat. These agencies act as an intermediary between landlords and the tenants. You sign a contract with the agency and pay the rent directly to them.
Normally, you will share a flat with other students, in other words, there is a shared kitchen, bathroom and living room but you will have a private room. Agencies usually charge one month’s rent for their services.
