    I've done 2 weeks in a GDP and 4 days spread over 2 weeks at an orthodontists, so would I say something like 'in my 2 weeks work experience at a GDP and 4 days at an orthodontists I learnt this....?' Or to save characters, 'in my work experience at a GDP and orthodontists I learnt this....?'

    I would definitely state exactly how much you have done especially if you are applying to unis which specify a minimum amount of work experience! If unis ask for 2 weeks and you have not stated 2 weeks on your personal statement it may give them reason to reject you.

    Yes, a lot of the universities require you to specifically state how many weeks you have had.

    I know one university instantly rejects candidates who do not state the weeks/days.

    I am dental student, if you have any questions please ask me.

    The university of Manchester require this information for sure.

    Regarding other university, I am not too sure.
