Few medical schools in Europe offer graduate entry dentistry courses or fast track dentistry as it is popularly known. Of those that do, most offer a 4-year programme. However, there is an opportunity for a 3-year course.
Already have a medical education background? Afraid you don’t have the time to invest 5 or 6 years in dentistry? We have the perfect solution for you! Get a dental degree as quickly as possible in a dentistry graduate entry programme.
That’s right! This option enables you to skip up to 2 years worth of studying subjects that you’ve already studied before. As a graduate with a degree in biomedical-related science or a healthcare professional, you won’t have to go through the trouble of an entrance exam or an interview again. How does this work? It’s simpler than you think.
Depending on your qualifications, the dentistry graduate entry course allows you entry into the second or third dentistry year. Your previous degree and your successfully passed subjects will be exempted from your programme. We will equivalate your previous qualifications and hours to exempt you from the introductory years of dental school.
The entry requirement for admission into a graduate-entry dentistry programme is a previous biomedical or life science degree. Your previous qualifications will prove that you are eligible to study an accelerated dentistry course and determine how many dental school years you can skip.
Unlike an undergraduate course, you are not required to have 3 A-Levels in scientific subjects. Your entry process will be much smoother because you have already done the difficult part. And to top it off, there’s no entrance exam for the dentistry graduate programme as well.
The only entry requirements for graduate entry dentistry are a university transcript, passport, and English language proficiency.
The only university that offers a 3-year accelerated dental medicine programme is the European University in Tbilisi, Georgia. Applicants should meet certain criteria, however.
Few schools in Europe offer a 4-year course in Dentistry. However, this is the standard programme duration for graduate entry, while the 3-year pathway is actually an even rarer opportunity. However, getting a is still an excellent deal.
Here are the two schools that currently offer a 4-year dentistry degree in Europe:
Just like graduate entry medicine, the fast-track dentistry programme will enable you to become a dental practitioner as soon as possible. Dental schools in Europe are recognised by health councils worldwide. Moreover, they are popular among international students looking to graduate in dental medicine abroad.
European universities are also more affordable than those in the UK or USA, with more flexible entry requirements and less entry competition. The tuition fees for graduate entry into the dentistry programmes in Europe start from €6,000 per year, which doesn’t compromise the quality of education in any way.
