Course description

The A101 medical programme has been developed specifically for students who are expecting to achieve at least a good 2:1 Honours degree in a Biological, Biomedical or Health Science subject. Other additional subject and grade requirements exist. There is also a guaranteed interview scheme for applicants on the Liverpool BSc Honours programmes and pathways in the School of Life Sciences and a shortened three-year route for dentists wishing to pursue a career in oral and maxillofacial surgery. The University of Liverpool requires a GAMSAT result as part of the entry requirements for graduates applying to medical programmes. Further details of GAMSAT can be found here: www.gamsat.acer.edu.au/gamsat-uk. The only exception to this is for dentists applying to the oral-maxillofacial route. The latter route will have an independent selection process.

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.
