Applying, fees & funding

Applications are made via UCAS 

All potential applicants must apply via UCAS prior to 16 October deadline.  Late applications will not be accepted. Please see the Selection Criteria for more information as to how we process applications.  

We strongly advise you when applying, to use your personal email address in your contact details (not a school/college one, as this may become redundant as you go through the process). If you need to make changes to your UCAS application after you have submitted it, including changing your email address, phone number etc. you can do so via the UCAS Hub.

Hardship funds

The Barts and The London Alumni Association Benevolent Funds also offer grants to medical and dental students in financial hardship, and bursaries to students undertaking intercalated degrees and final-year electives on the recommendation of the appropriate committees of the School. Donations from generations of former students have made it possible to offer such assistance.

Further advice

The Advice and Counselling Service at Queen Mary offers detailed advice and guidance on all aspects of financial, immigration and practical matters as well as support you with your mental health wellbeing.

Transfers – Home and International

Home Transfers

Dental Schools do not accept transfers of students from other schools. This is because the requirements for graduation defined by the GDC are not taught and assessed in a similar order.  Government capped places would also be disrupted by student transfers.

Schools may consider transfers for students in unforeseen exceptional circumstances with approval of both the sending and receiving programmes. In most cases the student would need to re-start from year one for the reasons described previously.

DSC encourages prospective students to consider the intensity of oral healthcare courses and their potential geographical distance from their support networks, when applying for dental school.

International transfers

Students from a dental school outside the UK are unable to transfer into a programme in a UK dental school. This is because international programmes follow their local regulatory requirements which are likely to differ from those in the UK.
