Funding for a second degree in Dentistry Watch
Graduate entry dentistry courses are exception courses which means you can still get funding even if it is your second degree. For a 4 year course, in year 1 you would self fund £3465 of your tuition fees and can request a Tuition Fee Loan for £5,785. In years 2-4 the Department of health will pay the first £3,715 fees and you can take a Tuition Fee Loan for the remainder up to £5,535.
Hope this helps, let us know if there is anything we can clarify.
Hi SFE,I currently study BSc Biomedical Sciences at Newcastle Uni. Therefore, I will have used up all my tuition fee entitlement for a secondary degree in dentistry. I am wanting to stay at Newcastle Uni for dentistry, but I am also considering Manchester (5 years), and both KCL and Aberdeen Uni for graduate entry 4 year dentistry. I believe that for the graduate 4 year courses, most of the tuition fee is paid for, and maintenance loan is available? I am just wondering what other funding is available to me i.e. to afford living in London or to afford £9,250 per year and living costs if I were to move to Manchester for example. I do not qualify for my parents earning less than a certain living wage. Thank you!
