Fielding Johnson Building

Leicester boasts so many attributes it is impossible to list them all, but students choose to study here because Leicester feels like home the moment you set foot on campus. Our Major/Minor degrees enable you to create your own degree where you can study a core area in depth (your major subject), while also exploring an additional area (your minor subject). Our Students' Union is home to the O2 Academy Leicester bringing great bands and club nights to our building!

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
If you want a stable, well-paid career, then dentistry is an excellent choice. Starting salaries rival those for medicine, almost all graduates get jobs in dentistry on leaving their course and there are roles all around the country. It is a pretty select course, with only a little over a thousand graduates a year, but for that group, the rewards can be excellent.
