How difficult is it to get into graduate entry dentistry Watch
If it's something you want to do, it's definitely worth persuing. I did Dental Materials and am now studying Dentistry but majority of other graduates on my course did Biomed. A good UKCAT score and relevant work experience would put you in a good position. I would say medicine and Dentistry both have relatively similar chances to get into as a graduate. It also depends if you were to be looking for 4 year courses (accelerated) as opposed to 5 year ones. The key difference between the two other than the length is the amount of funding you can get. Also there are not as many 4 year graduate dentistry courses.
I would really like to do it but there seems to be 3 graduate 4 year courses in the UK. I definately wouldn't be able to afford the 5 year course. Does applying as a graduate still require good a levels?
Please check on the university websites for current requirements but just had a brief look for the graduate entry courses. Liverpool require ABB at A-level. UCLan require CCC. Not sure on what Kings or Aberdeen require for A-level. If in doubt about whether you meet their entry, just ring up the unis and they should be able to give more details.
