DPU has established an innovative training concept that expands existing systems in Europe and is recognised throughout the EU. We are convinced that fair competition between study concepts leads to an improvement in dental studies and the optimisation of dentistry for the benefit of the patient. A democratic society thrives with elite academic institutions that do particularly well in the competition between educational institutions.
University education is not possible for free; it is either financed entirely by the state, jointly with subsidised or no tuition fees, or by private contributions. Students who pay performance-based tuition fees can expect an exceptional quality of the courses on offer, the study conditions and the lecturers. But in return, the university can expect a committed audience that wants to be challenged.
The tuition fees for the diploma programme in dentistry for award of the Dr. med. dent. degree in the German-language course at DPU are EUR 14,175 per semester, the total tuition fees for the six years are EUR 170,100. In addition, there are costs to be paid for purchases (instruments, materials) in the course of a dental degree.
