The BDS programme embraces the University’s hallmarks of active learning, confidence, authentic assessment, and research-connected teaching, as well as having many notable and unique design elements.

The Dental Surgery programme from University of Liverpool shares a three year Collaborative Learning Core (CLC) with dental therapy students, where learning and collaborating in teams builds mutual respect and understanding of the varied roles of the dental team. The remaining two years of the programme will prepare you to undertake the scope of practice of a Dentist.

Components within the programme are closely integrated and provide clear steps for you to develop, integrate and demonstrate your skills before building to the next level of clinical capability. Clinical experience commences in the first year of the programme and is underpinned by aligned medical and anatomical knowledge; communication skills; professionalism; ethics and clinical safety.

Career prospects

There are a wide range of career opportunities within the profession. The majority of graduates will choose general dental practice within the NHS and in the private sector, whilst others might choose one of the hospital specialities, the community dental service, university teaching, or the armed forces.

Programme Structure

Teaching and Learning
  • Theoretical teaching on the programme is employed via a combination of approaches, such as problem-based learning (PBL), student-led research and flipped classrooms, all of which are supported by lectures. 
  • Practical teaching approaches include peer observation and assist, simulated patients and the supervised treatment of patients on clinic.
  • The curriculum is built on milestones, which build in complexity each year. Students are assessed based on the milestones for that year of study, which spirally build on the knowledge they have gained in previous years.
