MSc Clinical Dentistry (Paediatric Dentistry) / Application and selection

Year of entry: 2023

How to apply

Please apply via our online application form . See the application and selection section for details of the supporting documents we require.

We recommend that you apply as early as possible. We reserve the right to close applications if the course is full.

As there is a high demand for our courses, we operate a staged admissions process with selection deadlines throughout the year. Due to the competition for places and the high quality of applications that we receive, we give preference to applicants with grades above our minimum entry requirements and who can demonstrate relevant experience.

Please ensure you submit all supporting documentation with your application before the application deadline to avoid a delay in processing. Incomplete applications will held over to the next stage and will not be reviewed until all documentation is received.

Applications for 2023 entry

  • Stage 1 : Complete application received by 2 December 2022. Decision (including interview invite) by 13 January 2023.

While we aim to give you a decision on your application by the deadline date, in some instances it may be necessary to put your application on a waitlist (this may be before or after interview). If this is the case, we will let you know by the deadline date of your stage or after interview. Applications placed on the waitlist will be reviewed during the final stage.

Please note: All places are subject to availability. If you apply at one of the later stages, the course may already be reaching capacity or be closed to further applications. We recommend that you apply early in the cycle to avoid disappointment.

Applicants who are made a conditional offer of a place must demonstrate that they have met all the conditions of their offer by 31 July 2023.
