DSC Summer Schools 2023
Access to Medicine and Dentistry
Next year over 500 young people from England will be offered the chance to attend a summer school. The summer schools will be open to young people in Years 11 and 12 who are interested in studying medicine or dentistry.
Funded by Health Education England, the programme is aimed at young people who are from under-represented backgrounds, and targets areas of England that have limited outreach engagement with medical or dental schools.
For the first time there will be two dental summer schools, alongside four residential and two online medical summer schools.
The dental summer schools are:
King’s College London Dental School
This summer school will welcome 35 Year 12 students from across England to its Guy’s campus for a residential summer school in July 2022. Students will have the opportunity to experience what living and studying at a central London university is like as well as learn dental techniques through practical workshops and virtual reality sessions. More details how to apply will be available soon.
University of Plymouth Peninsula Dental School’s Residential Summer School
Peninsula Dental School will welcome 20 Year 11 and 12 students who meet the eligibility criteria from across Devon, Cornwall (including the Isles of Scilly), Dorset and Somerset on the main university campus with the aim of looking at the whole life cycle of a dental student, from the admissions and selection process to life beyond dental school, showing the range of careers within the oral healthcare profession. The dates for the three-night, four-day programme are Monday 10 July to Thursday 13 July 2023. The closing date for applications is Friday 12 May 2023.
