Hi All,

I am going to be applying for the Oral Science course for 2018 entry. Who else has applied/is going to apply and with what qualifications?

- I am a qualified dental nurse with 4.5 years experiences, all relevant GCSE's (including triple science).

Also, any other information/experience of the application process?

Hiya, I applied this year (2017 entry) and managed to secure a place - starting in a couple of weeks (eeek!). I am a dental nurse of 3 years with relevant GCSE's but no A levels. I would say make sure you have a strong personal statement including reasons why you want to become a dental hygienist and what you can bring to the profession. Interviews are usually given out quickly after application and take place over a few months usually between december-april then you will find out about places at the beginning of may. Unfortunately I cannot help with regards to the interview process - we aren't allowed to give out clues to what may happen, although if successful for interview they will send out an email with information about the day. Hope this helps a little

Thank you so much for your reply it is very encouraging to hear that they consider you on your personal attributes as well as actual qualifications. I cannot tell you how much I would love to get on the course.. When did you submit your application?

No, the lady above said they normally start interviewing from December but then you may not receive an answer until May so I guess once its submitted its just a waiting game however I know I will be checking UCAS every day just in case!.. do you know whether they will email/write to us directly or whether the offer of an interview will be all through UCAS? Also are you planning on attending the open day in October? x

Hiya Hun just wondering was this your first year of applying and was you fully prepared? I know you cant give details of the interview but was it strict or quite a relaxed atmosphere? Thanks in advance
