Student Reviews

CEU San Pablo Dentistry is highly recommended
Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

CEU San Pablo is highly recognised world wide. Dentistry program is accredited by GDC UK and other EU countries.

From chemistry to pharmacy, the best mix
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

The best of the Master programme is the Master Thesis I am doing right now, it is about neurosciece, a topic that I find really interesting with many fields to abroad and enriched my knowledge. Additionally, as a chemist, I can use all the concepts in "discovering new drugs", acquiring new skills to manage in pharmacy research or in the industry.

Does the reputation precede adequately the institution?
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

The content to study is really good, but what fails, is the professionality of some professors. Also, some aspects at the university are not as good as expected.
