The Complete University Guide releases top 10 dental schools list for 2020
The Complete University Guide has released its top 10 dental schools for 2020.
The list, which has been published in The Telegraph, rates universities and dental schools across the country according to course options, student satisfaction, postgraduate employment rates, and study and research facilities.
For the first time, the University of Aberdeen’s dental school made it into the top 10, occupying the 9th spot, while fellow Scottish schools also performed brilliantly. The University of Glasgow and the University off Dundee occupied the 1st and 2nd places respectively. The University of Cardiff scooped the bronze medal, followed by the universities of Manchester and Newcastle in 4th and 5th. Northern Ireland’s most prestigious dental education facility, Queen Mary’s Belfast, was named the 6th best dental school, with London’s King’s College and Queen Mary University in 7th and 8th. The University of Leeds completed the list in 10th position.
The highest ranked dental school, the University of Glasgow, was awarded first place based on its state of the art facilities, varied range of units and modules and the opportunity to undertake clinical extractions in the fourth year of the five-year course. Year five offers a diverse range of speciality areas, including endodontics and periodontics. The runner-up, the University of Dundee scored particularly highly in graduate prospects, with almost every graduate guaranteed a job after completing the programme. Third-placed Cardiff University impressed with its commitment to research, boasting the highest research quality score of all the dental schools.
The guide is designed to provide information for students considering applying for a dental degree course in 2020.Join this Discussion
