    I am a professor in Greece helping to prepare students for further studies in the Britain and would like further details in the field of Dentistry art Post Graduate level for EU students. Actually I am interested in fees basically for such students coming from Europe.

    • Study London says:

      Hello, European students pay the same fees as UK students so when you look at courses, you can use the ‘Home fees’. While at undergraduate level the tuition fees are capped at £9,000, at postgraduate level universities can set their own fees so you will find that the costs can vary quite significantly between different universities. Masters courses tend to have higher fees than PhD programmes. Please view this list of postgraduate Dentistry courses offered in London. For most, the fees are stated on the course entry. If it is not stated, please contact the university directly or visit the university’s website for this information. Hope this helps!
