Dentistry

Let's discover more than a course. Let's discover our future career.

We offer a growing portfolio of undergraduate dental courses as well as flexible, part-time, postgraduate and CPD study enabling General Dental Practitioners to further their skills and education whilst maintaining clinical practice.

The University is renowned for the depth of supervised clinical experience students gain during their training.

You will learn clinical skills in one of the most modern phantom head rooms in Europe, equipped with state-of-the-art audio visual equipment.

Our on-site Dental Clinic and links with regional Dental Education Centres (DECs) allow you to gain valuable experience treating real patients.

We encourage cross-course learning. Students from BDS, Dental Therapy and CDT will all learn alongside each other, training as you will practice in the future, as part of the whole dental team.

The academic, non-clinical teaching on our postgraduate portfolio uses a modern, online delivery model. Our students come from around the UK so this benefits them with less travel and allows study at a time that is convenient.

Future Careers and Opportunities

BDS graduates will hopefully become a dental foundation trainee (DF1). The majority of dentists work in a high street practice or community dental clinics. If you want to work in a hospital environment and specialise, you can undergo further specialist training in orthodontics, paediatric dentistry, restorative dentistry and surgical dentistry. Continual professional development is vital as Dentistry changes all the time.

Dental Therapists and Clinical Dental Technologists may be eligible to apply for registration with the General Dental Council and work in dentistry as a dental care professional. Graduates who gain a 2.1 degree can apply for entry to the BDS programme.
