TasteDentistry is designed for secondary school pupils of all ages, generally aged 13-18 years, as as this is when most students start thinking about university, but the course is also open to keen students who are younger than this – we’ve had students as young as 11 years and really enjoy the day!
Currently all our courses run at the Imperial College campus in South Kensington, London.
The course runs from 09:30-18:00.
One of the main benefits of the course is that it gives students many new experiences, hands-on skills and a real taste of what studying dentistry is like, giving them plenty to write about in their personal statements and to talk about during interviews. There’s also set time on each day of the course to focus on the topic of applications – our tutors are very experienced in advising students on applying to dentistry, and will be happy to answer any and every question. You can also always get in touch with us via email with any questions you forget to ask!
