Hi everyone! I'm doing my undergrad degree at the moment and I'm considering going abroad to study dentistry! I just recently found out that there are some graduate schools in Australia that are 4 years long if you have an undergrad degree (which I plan on getting). I know there has been lots of discussion on this but I wanted to start a discussion about what option is best if I'm interested in in studying abroad and wanting to come back to practice in Canada. I am genuinely interested in studying abroad and I'm not trying to "pay my way through dental school". That being said, my family and I do have the finances for me to study abroad. I have also considered schools in the States but I feel that the problem with US schools is that they have a different standard for each school. I know some schools that don't offer enough practice and students coming back from there have a hard time finding a job with the little experience that they have recieved at that school. On top of that, the exchange rate is quite high and is probably more expensive than schools in Australia and in Ireland (I would imagine). I have heard multiple times that Australia has some of the top rated dental/ medical schools! Is anyone in the same position? I would love to hear some opinions on this! Also, I would love any advice from students who are studying abroad or have come back to practice!
