    Course Summary

    Liverpool University’s BDS in Dental Surgery is delivered in three phases. The first will acquaint you with the basic medical sciences, the second will focus mainly on practical and clinical skills, and the third will see you treating patients in a variety of settings as you prepare for your final exams.

    Upon successfully completing this program you will receive your Bachelor of Dental Surgery degree. You’ll be accredited by the General Dental Council, and be ready to take the next step towards working with the NHS or building your own dental practice.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.
