Course summary

Our innovative entry route into dentistry is designed to enable graduates with honours degrees in biomedical-related science subjects and healthcare professionals with a degree, to study for a Dentistry BDS. Our course combines the very latest thinking in dental education with early clinical experience. You will be taught by internationally-renowned staff and exposed to a rich breadth of skills and knowledge in a diverse clinical environment.

Key benefits

  • Evidence-based and research-led degree course with a high level of clinical experience in all areas.
  • Ranked 1st in the world for Dentistry (QS World University Rankings 2020).
  • State-of-the-art clinical, simulation and technical facilities.
  • Largest dental school in the UK graduating over 150 dentists a year.
  • Partnership with the world-famous hospitals: Guy's, King's College and St Thomas'.
  • Taught alongside Dental Therapy & Hygiene students.

On this course, you will be exempted from the first year of the standard five-year BDS on the basis of your previous studies. You will undertake a two-to-three-week preparatory course in September before joining year two of the five-year course.

Employability

A variety of career pathways are open to new dental graduates. The career path for many graduates is general practice, with others aiming to be consultants in the hospital dental service, senior clinical academics in a teaching hospital, or specialist practitioners. In most cases, newly-qualified graduates will enter practice by way of Dental Foundation Training. Foundation Dentists (FDs) work in a Training Practice under supervision and have a day release course of lectures and demonstrations building on the undergraduate degree and giving instruction in all aspects of practice management. After this year, successful FDs can begin work as an associate in a practice.
