Completing the UCAS form
All applications are coordinated by the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS).
There is lots of helpful information about submitting your application available on the UCAS website.
Our UCAS code is:
Completing your form
The deadline for submitting your UCAS form for Dental Hygiene and Therapy is 18:00 (UK time) on 25 January.
Do not confuse this with the deadline for applicants who are applying to Medicine and Dentistry courses (as well as Oxbridge), whose deadline for submitting the UCAS form is 18:00 (UK time) on 16 October.
These deadlines are set by UCAS and we are not able to accept late applications.
The UCAS form is your opportunity to tell us about your current qualifications and how you match up to our published entry criteria. The form needs to be complete and accurate at the point of submission and is assessed as it is received.
All qualifications, including those which are pending and any in which you have been unsuccessful, must be declared. For pending qualifications, a predicted grade from an appropriate educational professional at your current institution of study should be provided.
Please note that we do not normally accept subsequent declarations of additional qualifications or revised predicted grades that are provided to us after the UCAS deadline, so it is important that your form is accurate at the point of submission.
Applicants who meet the minimum academic requirements for Dental Hygiene and Therapy at The University of Manchester will progress to the next stage of the selection process.
You will be required to write a personal statement as part of your UCAS application, and this will be seen by the admissions departments for each of your course choices.
At Manchester, we do not usually read the personal statement of a Dental Hygiene and Therapy applicant that comes to us via UCAS; instead, we ask applicants to complete a Non-Academic Information Form.
There are some circumstances where we will look at the personal statement, however, so it is important that you complete it.
This is likely to be written by your head teacher, college principal or the head of your year/form tutor. If you are not at school, you should approach an academic supervisor whenever possible. A 'character reference' is not sufficient.
We do, however, want to know what the writer of the reference thinks about you as a person, not just about your academic achievements and potential.
We strongly recommend that any mitigating circumstances that may have affected your academic performance or any other aspect of the information contained in the UCAS form should be included in the referee's report.
Once we have received an application, we would also expect to be informed of any mitigating circumstances that might occur during the application process. Please contact us for further information on mitigating circumstances.
