Main entry requirements

A level
A,A,A

A (Chemistry); A (Biology); A (third academic A level). Evidence of excellent attainment in general and advanced secondary education: GCSEs in nine separate subject areas: attained by the end of Year 11 and at least a score of 15 points or better (where A*/A = 2; B = 1) from the nine and including: Core & Additional Science (or Biology, Chemistry, and Physics), English Language, and Mathematics (all at least grade B). Preference may be given to applicants with a higher GSCE score. Two points is the maximum score awarded in each subject area (e.g. Only one of Maths and Further Maths will be considered and 2 points at most will be available for Dual award GCSEs except for Dual Science for which up to 4 points may be awarded). Short course GCSEs will at most receive half the points of a full GCSE but two short courses can be offered in place of a full GCSE. A levels in three subjects taken at one sitting, usually after 2 years of study: at a minimum of AAA Chemistry and Biology are subject requirements at A2 level. Invitation to interview is highly competitive and both academic and non-academic criteria inform the selection process. Because of the competition, meeting the minimum academic and non-academic requirements does not guarantee that you will receive an invitation to interview. The Medical School reserves the right to vary offer conditions depending on a candidate’s application. For applicants from England: Where a science has been taken at A level (Chemistry, Biology or Physics), a pass in the Science practical of each subject will be required.

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.
