New and Approved
Posted on: 12 July 2019 by Emily Wilson in Centennial Curriculum
Major progress has been made this year towards the Centennial Curriculum, with some pretty important milestones being reached in the past few months.
New BSc Foundation Year
For those who want to pursue a career in health or veterinary studies but have been out of education for some time (or have non-traditional qualifications), the School of Health Sciences offer a Foundation programme. All students on the Dentistry, Medicine and Veterinary Science Foundation Year at Carmel College St Helen's, study the same content, and if they meet the requirements, progress into their chosen undergraduate programme.
The existing BDS programme is one of the courses thats students can chose to apply to via the Foundation programme. Thanks to recent approval from the University, the new BSc Dental Therapy programme is now also eligible for Foundation applicants.
Applications for the Foundation Year starting this September are now closed. Candidates for September 2020 will be able to apply via UCAS when the admissions cycle starts in September.
As of mid-May, the University of Liverpool and the General Dental Council (GDC), have approved both of our undergraduate programmes to commence in September 2019. The GDC will complete a further inspection once the programmes are up and running to make a final decision on the sufficiency and approval of the programme.
Reaching these important milestones has been as a result of the significant work of members of the Centennial Curriculum team, wider University and external reviewers. The School of Dentistry is very grateful to all those who have been involved in this process.
