Course details
Course UCAS code: A206
Qualification type:
  • BDS, Full-time , Duration: 5 Years
Course Summary:
This five-year degree comprises 23 compulsory study units. The unit structure is vertically and horizontally integrated to optimise the co-ordinated delivery of scientific, technical and clinical teaching. Year one is based in the School of Medical Sciences. Year two is based primarily in the School of Oral and Dental Sciences for initial clinical skills training and patient contact. You can intercalate in a science subject in your third year to obtain an Honours BA or BSc. The following years focus on developing your clinical skills and experience in each of the clinical disciplines and at community-based teaching clinics. The elective project at the end of year four provides you with the opportunity to undertake dental-related research, audit, or supervised clinical activity in the UK or abroad. Certain health conditions may be incompatible with some careers in dentistry. If you have a chronic health problem, please contact the Enquiries Team for guidance on making an application. Practising dentistry demands the highest standards of professional and personal conduct. In accordance with General Dental Council guidelines on fitness to practise, some students may not be suitable for a career in dentistry. All dental students are required to complete a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check and register with the Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA), in line with other health-related courses in the UK. For more information, please visit our guidelines for students on DBS disclosure page: http://www.bris.ac.uk/secretary/legal/dbs/students-dbs/

Bristol’s great if you don’t really fancy concrete and a bustling metropolis – it’s a city uni with leafy streets, loads of independent shops and an intimate, community vibe. The city is kind of expensive, but if you budget properly you can stretch your loan out to have a great time here. There are loads of things to do in town, with a hectic nightlife and a great dubstep/drum and bass scene! The Uni is amazing too, with great facilities (the free bus onto campus is very helpful), and amazing tutors who were really inspiring and helpful.

    I have just started but the uni has been really accommodating and welcoming. The events during the first week were also very good.
