Course summary

Dentistry in Aberdeen is designed specifically for graduates, capitalising on the knowledge and skills you already have to ensure you become a first-class dental professional. Our programme has been designed with graduates in mind, enabling you to capitalise on the existing knowledge and transferable skills from your previous degree. From day one, you will be preparing to be a dental professional, benefiting from early clinical problem solving and patient contact, and an integrated approach to learning.The dental curriculum uses a variety of teaching methods including case based learning. You will be engaged in reflective practice from an early stage in your clinical experience. During the course, you will be taught by and observe a wide range of dental professionals from both primary and secondary care services. NHS Education for Scotland (NES), the dental protection organisations and the GDC are also engaged in many of the learning opportunities.The Bachelor of Dental Surgery (BDS) degree is a five year programme in the UK for undergraduate entry. At Aberdeen we run a graduate entry pathway which allows for direct entry into year 2 and the programme is then completed in four years. With only 20 places available each year, applicants to Aberdeen must demonstrate that their prior formal qualifications have covered relevant biomedical subjects.Within the programme students undertake both academic study and practical patient care. Patient care is introduced early and under close supervision from experienced clinicians. 100% of our graduates have gone on to find employment after graduation.
