    Hey everyone!

    I am currently in the final year of my Biomedical Sciences degree, and am hoping to study dentistry! I have sent off my UCAS application for graduate entry dentistry about three weeks ago, and my first choice is UCLAN (4 year grad entry).. (hopefully!!)

    It would be very interesting to know who else applied to UCLAN for dentistry, or perhaps talk to any current dental students at UCLAN, who could kindly share their experiences or give any tips/advices!

    Good luck to all! Hoping to hear from UCLAN dental applicants soon.

    Hello claraoshea93 and Jamesk1 I have called UCLAN this this morning but couldn't speak to the admissions tutor. But she has emailed me this

    "Dear Nergis,

    Thank you for your call this morning. I would like to inform you that the letter inviting you to attend the entrance Exam on the 20th November has already been printed. You should receive this in the post early next week.

    I look forward to you attending on the 20th."


    So I'm guessing you lot should be expecting a letter early next week also hopefully!

    I have called dental admissions and inquired about my application status, and the admissions tutor got back to me via email. So yes, I guess they would tell you if you were to email them as well.

    I applied to Cardiff ,Plymouth, Bristol and UCLAN Wbu?

    Mines on the 17th too! tried the needle stuff at home, its not too bad once you've done it once. Not sure about the rest of the 9 stations though, theres a lot they could ask
