Hi everyone! I just have a question regarding graduate entry dentistry for 2022. I was wondering if I apply and don’t receive any offers, am I still able to apply again for 2023? I just want to know whether there will be a disadvantage for applying for the second time? Thanks!

Some dental schools specify that they don’t accept reapplicants more than a certain number of times or applicants who have been rejected post-interview. Apart from those schools, you can still reapply and you’ll be at no disadvantage.

Hey
As someone in the thread said, most universities accept reapplicants but one important thing they look for is that you've used that year to work on yourself and strengthen your application. This could be by doing things such as working, volunteering, doing more work experience, taking up new hobbies etc.
I know plenty of people who didn't get into Dentistry straight away and secured a place the year after by reapplying!

Wishing you the best of luck,

I’m assuming you mean you’re applying for 2022 entry so I’ve moved your post here.

You should apply strategically to schools which you have the highest chance of being accepted into - all dental schools are accredited by the GDC so there’s no “which dental school is best” answer. It all depends on your stats and your non-academic preferences (location, course structure etc).

You should book your UCAT test now.

Hi Numra
Thank you very much for your help.
Better I should explain my current situation first so you may give me some specific ideas!
I am currently working as a dental technician.
I have no GCSE or A level science qualification but I have completed BSc dental technology from Cardiff Met uni and then completed MSc in Dental Technology from Sheffield university. I finished my study in 2017.
Then I applied for dental surgery course and called for MMI interview at Leeds university but unfortunately I did not get the place.
Then I thought better I should get some work experience before applying again! So here I am !
So I am planning to apply again . I don’t mind about the quality or status of the uni , i just want to get a place in any dental school as long as I become a qualified dentist.
I have a vast experience on practicing dental treatment!
I used to work with dentists in a dental hospital(my home country) where I treated dental patients directly under supervision of dentists. So I know most of the treatment procedures already! e,g from scaling, filling, extraction to rct!
So mainly I need to get the dental degree.
Hope you are not bored reading my long story! 😁
Now can you please give me some idea which universities are accepting degree qualification and not looking for A level/ GCSE science?
As I know at least one uni Leeds will accept my application!
Kind regards
Sha

Hi everyone! I’m applying to graduate dentistry 2022 at hopefully KCL. I’m not blessed with money so I’m unable to pay for accommodation to go far. Even taking the train from Colchester to london is gonna be expensive.

Anything I need to know when applying? I know I have to do really well at UCAT and I’ve started looking over the types of questions and sections using medify and can hopefully do really well on it.

Does anyone know any other graduated dentistry courses? Can’t do undergraduate because I can’t afford it.
Also, can someone give me a full breakdown of the types of loans I can get to support me? I’m assuming it’s the same as graduate medicine but it’s a bit unclear about maintenance loan from the nhs

Hi both, have a look at this link which provides information on 1) which universities provide graduate entry dentistry courses and 2) their entry requirements. https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/uni...-for-dentistry

Hi,
I don't think that would be detected as plagiarism as it would only be tracked back to you however, I don't think using the same personal statement as 2017 is a good idea, it doesn't show any growth/that you've used that time to strengthen your application. You can use it as a template but I would definitely suggest rewriting sections to show what you've done over the last 3 years to make your application stronger.

Hey there,
So you are correct in saying that you have to do well at UCAT, that is one they will use (in addition to your academic performance) to determine if your score is competitive enough for an interview. I also wanted to go to KCL (similar reasons to you, money etc) but my UCAT was never quite higher enough! I am now going to UCLan and start in Sept.

Therefore in terms of the money situation, I would definitely recommend looking to some places that offer scholarships - sometimes the Uni themselves will (I know KCL does offer a scholarship) but there are many external ones that offer for those in financial need to for academic excellence. There are also trusts and charities, such as the StapleyTrust (they specifically cater those in the healthcare industry). Looking at funding may also take off any financial burden from loans.

In terms of loans, to address the later part of your question, I am not sure on a full breakdown and don't want to give any false info but can give you this to refer to:
https://www.healthcareers.nhs.uk/car...ental-students

Hope this helps and all the best with your application!

Hi there,

I'd like some help with my application,

So I'm applying to Dentistry as a graduate this academic year and I wanted to decide on the last couple of universities to place down on my UCAS.

I didn't do the best in my UCAT, got a 2410 with Band 2 and I can only apply to certain universities with my degree and previous academic attainment.

This is University of Leeds, Undergraduate Dentistry (I'll be doing the BMAT in November)
KCL Graduate Entry Dentistry
University of Aberdeen Graduate Entry Dentistry
University of Glasgow Undergraduate Dentistry
University of Dundee Undergraduate Dentistry
University of Newcastle Undergraduate Dentistry

It's safe to say Newcastle would be a straight rejection because of my UCAT. I will definitely be applying to Leeds and KCL, but wanted to know about the scottish universities. I have heard of the reduced places this year for Dentistry in Scotland and Aberdeen will be reducing Rest of UK to 2 places.
As for Glasgow and Dundee I wanted to know what the chances would be me of getting a place.

Which of the Scottish universities should I put down as my final 2 spots?

Hi guys!!! Some help needed. I did chemistry at imperial and am expecting 2.1 in degree, and my alevels were A*A*AA(maths phys bio Chem). My UCAT is 2680 band1. But I’m an international student, so I guess my ucat score is not competitive enough for good unis. Any advice in which dental school I should apply for?
