Health clearance

Courses that involve exposure to human blood or other body fluids and tissues, require students to conform to the national guidelines for the protection of patients, health care workers and students. Before admission to a clinical course you will need to achieve a satisfactory level of Hepatitis B immunity. You’ll be tested for Hepatitis C and HIV when you start. If you are found to be Hepatitis C antibody positive or an infectious carrier of HIV, then you may be unable to continue.

If you have serious health problems, or know that you are infected with Hepatitis B, C or HIV, you must tell us on your application form. We assess all potential students with significant health problems. Our immunisation requirements are constantly being reviewed to ensure we meet with current Department of Health guidance. You need to comply with these if you are offered a place. You’ll get more information when you apply, but if you have any questions on health clearance issues, please get in touch.

Disclosure and Barring Service

You will need a satisfactory Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) Enhanced Disclosure. If you do have any criminal convictions or cautions (including verbal cautions) and bind-over orders, please tell us about them on your application form.

If you have not lived in the UK in the preceding five years before you commence our programme, you will need to provide us with a Certificate of Good Standing from the police authority in your home country. You’ll get more information on the DBS and the Certificate of Good Standing when you apply.

Local NHS policies and procedures

You will be undertaking clinical training in the local NHS Foundation Trust’s Dental Hospital. You must comply with their policies and procedures, which include the Department of Health policy on being ‘bare below the elbow’. If you need any clarification on these policies and procedures before you apply, please see our website.

Weekly online events
