Course summary

Since 2011, every student who has graduated from this course has secured their first job as a dental foundation trainee - impressive, given places are limited and awarded following a national competitive selection process. There are only 29 places on the programme so it has a friendly, intimate feel and allows for more discursive, interactive learning. You will be based in one of our four local Dental Education Centres for the majority of the final three years - a very different model from a traditional dental school and one that we firmly believe prepares you better for life in practice. You will spend Year 2 BDS studying on Campus in the new purpose-built Dental School at UCLan, before relocating for three years’ clinical training at one of four newly-established DECs in Accrington, Blackpool, Carlisle and Morecambe Bay. During your 3-year placement at one of four local community Dental Education Centres (DECs), you’ll gain experience of secondary care maxillofacial surgery, orthodontics and advanced restorative dentistry. The DECs are clinical training centres where you will treat patients, under supervision, and gain first-hand experience within the communities you are most likely to serve after graduation.
