    Hi everyone, as a Scottish undergrad I’ve been given an unconditional offer to Dundee and to Glasgow for dentistry. I’m completely stuck on which one to choose- and as I’m on the other side of the world I can’t even visit before the deadline to see which I sway towards. If anyone has any info or comments on either Dental School, I’d be really grateful!

    From my own bias viewpoint I'd recommend Glasgow - personally I enjoy the city more. It has more to offer than dundee. However if you are looking for a course with a warmer nature, dundee is more suiting

    Glasgow for sure ! You start to get your own patients about a year (I think) before Dundee students and this experience is invaluable !

    Do you study dentistry at Glasgow? How do you find the course and social life? I’ve seen that the dental school is situated quite far from the uni campus in the west end

    I’m a first year dental student at Dundee and I couldn’t recommend it more. There is such a great atmosphere and everybody is so lovely. The social life is great, I’ve only been here since September but I’m having the time of my life.

    Yeah I was in the exact same position as you but I ended up going with Dundee because I just felt there was a more welcoming atmosphere

    This is such a helpful reply. Nice to hear you're enjoying the course! Is it a big course? How did you come to decide to study at Dundee? (i.e where are you from in the UK and how have you settled in). Sorry for all the questions I've received an offer from Dundee and want to hear what people have to say about it! 😃😂

    When did u hear from Glasgow? I'm a sixth year Scottish undergraduate nd I'm still waiting on Glasgow. I got an offer from Dundee but I really want to go to Glasgow. I've been to both nd personally I prefer Glasgow as I feel its more fun, more social and its more my style if that makes sense. To be fair, I did really like the dental school in Dundee and I love how much of a student city it is.

    The course is challenging but it’s so interesting and enjoyable that it makes it a lot easier to take in. I’m actually from Glasgow but decided to go to Dundee because I loved the atmosphere and I wanted to move out and have more independence. I’m definetly glad I chose Dundee and I’ve settled in great

    I heard back from Glasgow towards the end of March I think it was roughly about the 20th. I think they’re both great dental schools, but the student life at Dundee is great

    Yes you're right. Sounds like you're having a great time! Thanks for the info. Are you living on campus at the moment?
