Advice to applicants
Applicants should provide the following:
- 2 academic references - both must be signed, dated and on headed paper. References more than twelve months old will not be accepted
- Copies (not originals) of degree certificates and official academic transcripts of previous study showing the subjects taken and grades obtained. (If these are in a language other than English, please provide official translations.) Note: If applicants hold a BDS from a UK University they need not provide a transcript of results but must provide a copy of the certificate
- Copies (not originals) of English Language certification if an applicant's first language is not English - IELTS, TOEFL, or PEARSON Test only
- Applicants for Clinical programmes will be required to provide evidence of their primary dental qualification and Masters Degree from a recognised institution.
Please upload a copy of your current valid passport showing the photograph page with your application. Please note: The School will not process any applications that have supporting documents missing. The School does not make offers conditional on the submission of supporting documents.
It is highly recommended that applicants identify and contact a proposed academic supervisor prior to submitting their formal application. The School website contains extensive information on our research groups and the majority of academics have personal profiles detailing their existing work and publications.
Prior to application, it is best practice to email a suitable academic with a CV and a brief abstract of proposed study so it can be assessed for its academic merit. If encouraged, applicants can then apply formally online. If specific funded projects are advertised, details on the application process and requirements will be outlined in the advertisement.
Applicants will be required to have an interview which can be arranged either in person or by phone/Skype before a decision on acceptance is reached.
Fitness to practise / health requirements
Health clearance from the University's Occupational Health Department may be a condition of any offer.
Disclosure and Barring Service check
Clinical students are required to undertake a Disclosure and Barring Service check prior to starting their programme of study.
If you applied previously and your application was not successful you may apply again. Your application will be considered against the standard programme entry criteria for that year of entry.
In your new application you should demonstrate how your application has improved. We may draw upon all information from your previous applications or any previous registrations at the University as a student when assessing your suitability for your chosen programme.
