I am working with a young man who wishes to be a dentist. English is his second language. He is currently studying a level 2 Health and Social Care Course and taking additionally Biology and English GCSE after passing his functional skills English and Level 1 Health and Social Care with distinction. He has learnt English very quickly and is a diligent and determined student. He passed his maths GCSE at level 4 last year. What route could he take to Dentistry without undertaking A levels please and is there an OU route.Many thanksKaren Ashworth

The best route without doing A Level is to do either level 3/ triple award BTEC in a relevant subject or a relevant Access course. Not all dental schools accept these.
He will also need to meet minimum GCSE requirements which are typically very competitive.

See the following links for information on GCSE requirements and alternative qualifications for dentistry:

Thankyou that's really helpful. Just one more question can any of this be done through the OU at all?

Dentistry is not offered by the Open University - it’s a course which is limited to less than 20 universities nation-wide.
