Course details
Course UCAS code: A204
Qualification type:
  • BDS, Full-time , Duration: 6 Years
Course Summary:
Our pre-dental entry course in Dentistry (foundation year) is aimed at students who have proven academic ability but not the necessary science qualifications to apply directly to the five-year BDS . Automatic entry to the standard five-year BDS course is granted upon satisfactory completion of the foundation year. The five-year course will prepare you for a dentistry career through a combination of clinical study and basic and advanced dental sciences. Once you have mastered basic competencies in the University's skills facilities , you will move on to treating patients in both the University Dental Hospital of Manchester and local outreach clinics early in the course. You will learn to work within a dental team to take a patient-centred approach to clinical care, practicing in a professional, safe and ethical manner. Our students are also trained to become reflective practitioners who are committed to lifelong learning. **Aims** The course is specifically constructed to prepare you for the first year of the standard five-year BDS course . All topics have a medical or dental orientation, many using clinical material, although you will not have direct contact with patients. Part of the foundation year is taught at Xaverian College , with access to all its facilities and support systems. **Special Features** **Early clinical experience** You will be introduced to the clinical environment in the first semester of Year 1, enabling you to integrate theory and practice early on in the course. **Interdisciplinary learning** Learn alongside students and professionals from a range of backgrounds, including those training in complementary professions such as dental nursing and therapy. **Intercalation opportunities** You can study another subject to achieve a BSc award over one year between Years 2 and 3 of the BDS course.

For a great student experience Manchester is the place to be, the main student halls only a ten minute magic bus ride from uni, be out of bed and in lectures within half an hour (great after a night out!) With the biggest students union in the UK there is always something to do, try out a 'Why Not Wednesday?' or join a society, there's more than 400 to choose from, including Quidditch! The city centre has all sorts of surprises, loads of opportunity for shopping, sightseeing and eating out. The Northern Quarter is somewhere to be explored for newcomers will a whole host of quirky bars, pubs and restaurants. The city centre is again only a 20 minute magic bus ride from halls. Manchester is is where you want to be!
