The Faculty of Dentistry in the Universitat Internacional de Catalunya is launching new 5-year degree programmes in English. The first two years will be taught exclusively in English, and from the third year onwards, students will join the overall programme. In their third year students will begin to do work experience in the University Dental Clinic (CUO), therefore they will need to have learned Spanish during their first two years.

The UIC’s Language Service will offer them the appropriate courses to achieve this.

The Degree in Dentistry at the UIC equips students with thorough scientific knowledge, technical skills and the ability to effectively apply them to the diagnosis, treatment, and recovery of a wide range of dental diseases and ailments.

The programme addresses topics in dental structure and function, biomechanics of the normal and affected dental apparatus, as well as the most innovative techniques and procedures used in the treatment of abnormalities.

The curriculum emphasises skills in the basic sciences, so that students graduate with a solid scientific background and extensive experience confronting practical challenges before receiving their degree. The UIC University Dental Clinic (CUO) is equipped with the modern technology that proper dental treatment now calls for.


The fundamental objective of the curriculum for the Dentistry Degree at the Universitat Internacional de Catalunya is to train professionals who are able to apply the scientific knowledge and technical skills they have acquired to the diagnosis, treatment, cure and prevention of oral diseases, ethically, efficiently and safely.
