    I didn't realise I wanted to do dentistry
    Wanted to do research at the time, and now after my placement year I have had a change of heart!

    Well done! I think it is too low for Kings, which tends to put their cut off score at 700+ every year! THOUGH, aberdeen looks at UKCAT, and the average UKCAT score of students they accepted was ~620! Good Luck

    Hey guys, I'm considering applying as a graduate to Dentistry and have a few questions.

    How does financing work for post-grads? Can you take out student/tuition loans? Is there a limit?

    I recently got ABBab at A-level but I want to retake a few modules and apply for Biomedical Engineering to get into Dentistry

    Can I apply with a Biomedical Engineering degree? Is it better to study a BSc in Biochemistry?
    I'm in the process of contacting all the uni's about that.

    Best of luck to everyone!

    Unfortunately Peninsula no longer do graduate entry
    I would like to do undergrad, it's just finding the funding for it!

    Yes, I thought they didn't anymore!

    The tuition fee is an absolute pain!

    Hi there,

    With graduate entry you have the fund the £4000 in year one and the rest is paid via student loans and NHS bursaries.
    If you can I would apply for undergrad, it's easier to get into and there is student finance in place. If you do undergrad dentistry as a second degree you must fund the tuition fees yourself (Thats £9000+ a year).

    You can apply with a biomedical engineering degree, I would personally suggest Biomedical Sciences or Biochemistry though. Though Universities will accept biomedical engineering, I think Biomedical Sciences will be more relevant.

    I hope this helps, don't hesitate to ask if you need any help.
    Good Luck
