Dentistry UCLAN mature students entry requirements??!

Hi,
The university website only mentions A Levels requirements, but as a mature student with an access course, am I still eligible to apply? Additionally, I intend to apply with a first-year pharmacy degree, and the university can award me a Certificate of Higher Education Pharmaceutical Studies (120 credits at Level 4). Would I likely start dentistry from year 2 or year 1?
Thank you 🌸

i suggest you consider reaching out to admissions via email regarding your query, as it's not explicitly stated in the requirements. Regarding the structure of the course at UCLan, it's a four-year accelerated program. You would be entering what is traditionally considered "year 2" of the standard five-year course. This condensed format means you'll be covering the content of two years in one. Everyone begins at the same starting point, and your first year (2BDS) aligns with the first year of the accelerated program. This initial year typically entails the most modules due to the extensive content covered. Subsequent years are labeled 3BDS, 4BDS, and 5BDS, representing the second, third, and final years of the accelerated program, respectively.
