Applying to Dentistry

At Birmingham we offer a highly successful 5-year BDS Dental Surgery course. We know that applying to study Dentistry is extremely competitive and making an application can be quite daunting. Here we aim to make the process a little bit more digestible for you. 

Students from Ukraine

We are not able to accept a simple transfer regardless of circumstances for our BDS Dental Surgery programme. However we are pleased to inform you that UK Government has now confirmed that students from Ukraine are eligible to apply for a university place through normal UCAS routes. Students from Ukraine can also now access home student fees, tuition fee loans and maintenance loans, and are entitled to work in the UK (for up to three years) through one of three established national schemes.

We would welcome new applications for the BDS programme and we are happy to waive any usual prohibition on not accepting those who have started dental studies elsewhere from those who have been displaced from their University due to conflict. All applicants would be required to start the course from Year 1 as we do not accept transfers.
