Gateway to Dentistry - University of Bristol

Gateway to Dentistry is aimed at students who have the potential to become dentists but do not meet the academic entry criteria to apply directly to our five-year undergraduate Dentistry course. Our Gateway courses are a widening participation initiative for UK students who fulfill specific criteria and wish to apply for a clinical programme in dentistry, medicine or veterinary science. During the Gateway year students will learn alongside each other, benefiting from shared inter-professional insight and the unique community of Bristol’s medical, dental and veterinary schools. Students will be taught by academic teachers who are scientists and clinicians. The Gateway course will deepen existing knowledge of core basic sciences underpinning clinical subjects and places emphasis on the development of personal and professional skills, attributes and behaviours that enable successful transition to university study. Successful completion of the Gateway year allows automatic progression onto BDS Dentistry. **Eligibility** This course is open to applicants from specific schools and colleges in the UK only. Further information and lists of the eligible schools and colleges can be found on the admissions statement. International students may be eligible for the International Foundation Programme for Medicine and Dentistry: http://www.bristol.ac.uk/study/undergraduate/2020/international-foundation-medicine-dentistry/cert-international-foundation-medicine-dentistry/ **Health and Disclosure and Barring Service check** Certain health conditions may be incompatible with careers in dentistry. Before starting your degree you will need to complete a health assessment questionnaire and pre-course screening for blood-borne viruses; find out more about pre-course occupational health information: http://www.bristol.ac.uk/safety/health/pre-course.html In accordance with General Dental Council guidelines on fitness to practise, all dental students are required to complete a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check, in line with other health-related courses in the UK (http://www.bristol.ac.uk/secretary/legal/dbs/)
