Testimonials

Dentistry Student from France

Camille Arnoux

From the very beginning you feel a certain bond with the professors.

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!

Architecture Student from Mexico

Miguel Angel Martínez Escartín

The values that the CEU pass on to its students build a great foundation for one’s professional life as well as one’s personal life.

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.

Law student from the United States

Jacqueline Schulkin

Studying in Madrid is brilliant because it is a fantastic city filled with culture, history, entertainment, as well as being very safe.

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.   

Architecture student from Venezuela

Leslie Rios

My entire experience at CEU has been made so easy thanks to the great personalized attention I have received.

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.

Dentistry Student from Taiwan

Wilson Wu

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.

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.
