6 Dentistry reviews at University of Plymouth


Student Review: 3.4 /5

Dental Surgery, BDS

Seems the course is integrated (BDS & DTH) so they can get away with hiring less supervisors in the hopes that DTH/past dental nurses can teach BDS. Exams don't have the usual 40% pass mark and DTH have the same pass mark as BDS.. if you have the grades, do the extra 2 years for BDS.

Tutors are helpful and are knowledgeable across subject areas. Early clinical experience helps make practical application of topics a lot easier to understand.

Dental Surgery, BDS

By Csyrine On 17th April 20 verified Verified student

I'm an international student and I pay around 36K a year. Quite ridiculous, but there's nothing I can do about it. Teaching is alright, some lecturers have good slides and teach well but some just have very sloppy slides that it's hard to revise or learn off them. The spiral learning curriculum doesn't really work for me even though I thought it was a great idea. I prefer topics to be taught in large chunks so I can piece things together better and make better notes. I originally thought dabbling on everything and revisiting that topic every year will help with my memory but it's not really (I've finished Y2, going on to Y3). I find it a bit annoying actually when we learn a topic but don't go to the full depth and are told "We'll come back to this later". On clinic we generally have very helpful and kind clinical supervisors and I learn a lot. The two academic tutors I've had are all kind, also care about my general well-being during our meetings and have a supportive attitude.
