    Hi Guys,

    Just need a bit of advice, I have always wanted to study dentistry but have never really pursued it. These are my general qualifications A Bsc (Hons) Forensic Science 2.2 - 1% of a 2.1 . BTEC National Diploma Applied Science with Forensic Science Triple Distinction.


    Now I really don't mind studying again as I have been out of university in a dead end job since graduation and there doesn't seem to be any forensic related vacancies going at all and with the goverment closing down the forensic science service the future looks bleak.

    So what I am here to question is what university would be the best to apply, I am interested in Leeds' combined msc/bds, but what chance do I have to actually get accepted. I did study a fair bit of odontology within forensic anthropology and along with this various medicine and anatomy/physiology aspects and modules. Furthermore does anyone know what funding is available I heard the NHS will pay for your tuition fees after the first year? And what are the actual job prospects like?


    If anyone could help me with this it'd be great and I would appreciate it a lot.

    Thanks

    You should look into graduate entry dentistry, it's one less year and is there for people who already have a degree.

    You can also try grad entry into medicine and I know Nottingham University have an entry requirement of a 2.2 degree in a science based subject.

    Since it's too late to apply this year, I would extremely advise you to get work experience (paid or voluntary) in a health based centre i.e a clinic or a hospital

    Good Luck
