Dental Studies Course
The five-year (10 semesters) program at Debrecen has been carefully structured and designed to ensure a high standard of knowledge, skills and responsibility of dental surgeons.
During the 1st year a thorough understanding of the basic medical sciences such as Biophysics, Biochemistry and Genetics is gained and in the second year the program broadens to encompass Anatomy, Histology, Physiology and Behavioural Sciences in topics, which are relevant to the practice of Dentistry. Even in the first and second years, special dental subjects (Odontology, Preventive Dentistry, Dental Materials and Technics) are taught.

Material cost: in addition to the tuition fee 2 200 USD yearly (or 1200 USD/semester) material cost must be paid from the 3rd year on that is due before registration to the semester.
Scholarships and Financial Aid
International students can apply for a place in the Erasmus mobility program. From the second spent year in the University (BMC year excluded), excellent students may apply for a scholarship that may reach 20% of the tuition fee.
The Registrar’s Office will automatically forward the results of the students who achieved a stipend index of 4.50 or higher in the previous semester to the Committee. There is no need for the students to submit any application for the tuition fee reduction. It is the student’s responsibility to check the grade average of his/her closed semester before the registration period.
