Hi everyone,

I’m applying for dentistry (2021 entry) and for my 5th UCAS choice I’m stuck between Biomedical Sciences and a straight Chemistry degree. I’ve looked at the modules for both degrees from diff unis and I’m equally as interested in both course modules. So I was wondering which course offers better job prospects? Also, would I be able to go into research with both degrees?

Thank you!

it is better if you do biomedical science because it is more related to dentistry
the course has three main components. The first consists of subjects common to medicine and dentistry, progressing from biomedical sciences including behavioral
sciences, epidemiology, pathology and microbiology to human disease. The second includes oral and dental aspects of the biological sciences leading to an understanding of the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of oral and dental diseases and disorders, and the effects of systemic disease on the oral and dental tissues. The third covers the clinical and technical aspects of dentistry with the provision of comprehensive oral and dental healthcare for patients of all ages.
hence why it is more beneficial to choose biomedical science.
