Application process

Many applicants find the application forms, tests and interviews required when applying for undergraduate dentistry daunting. This section explains how to apply for our dentistry courses and how we assess each part of your application.

Remember, the admissions tutors want to get the best students just as much as you want to go to the best university, so make sure you let them know how good you are!

All applications for 2020 entry or those applying for deferred entry must be submitted through UCAS by 15 October 2019.

It is not possible to consider late applications. Receipt of applications to A204 (six-year Dentistry BDS with a Foundation Year) and A206 (five-year Dentistry BDS) will be acknowledged by the University of Manchester Central Admissions Office.
