Deadline for applications to UK dentistry courses is Wednesday 15th October.

By now, you should certainly have drafted a personal statement and hopefully you are just adding final touches. The Personal Statement should be a positive endorsement for your application that showcases your strengths and emphasises your enthusiasm for the profession.

Here are a few tips:

  • Pay careful attention to the introduction, this should grab the readers attention and get them interested in you
  • Do not rush to submit the PS at the last minute. Take your time over it and aim to produce several drafts
  • Don’t fall into the trap of being the person who uses these boring old clichés; admissions tutors will switch off and not pay attention to the content that follows
  • Do not waffle. 4000 characters is not a lot; conserve space by keeping to the point and expressing yourself in a succinct manner

Good Luck!

According to a press release from COPDEND (UK Committee of Postgraduate Dental Deans and Directors), who are responsible for Dental Foundation Training in the UK, all UK dentistry graduates have been offered training places starting from September. This has been a hot topic of conversation in dental circles in recent months, so it is a great relief for dental students and prospective dental students.

Phew! Dentistry employment is still thriving.
