Hello mso users

For a first year dentistry student at UQ would it be better to live closer to St Lucia or to Herston. I have read that the school of dentistry will be moving to the new Herston campus, but some of the subjects are still at St Lucia?

The first year subjects are
BIOL1040
ORAL1010
ORAL1020
ORAL1030
CHEM1022
DENT1011
DENT1030
ORAL1050

Which of the above subjects are at St Lucia or Herston?


Oh, and this is my first post at MSO. Hi everyone : 3

Welcome! ^_^
Only ORAL1030 is in the Dental school in first semester and DENT1011/DENT1030 in second semester.

Most interstate students I know live in St Lucia or suburbs nearby such as Toowong or Indooroopilly. Hope to see you around next year!

Thank you :)

So ORAL1030, DENT1011, DENT1030 are at the dental school. Is the dental school at the Herston campus near the royal Brisbane hospital?

Hopefully I'll see you and the other students soon.

Hi hummingbird!

It's probably better to live near St Lucia. The transport's great, it's cheaper than living in the city & it's a fun way to make friends. You spend roughly 3 days a week at the St Lucia campus, and 2 days at the dental school. But I remember there were mixed days when you'd have to bus it from one campus to the other during lunch time (to make a BIOL1040 or CHEM1020 lecture/prac) and then bus back to attend an arvo lecture at the dental school.

The new Herston school is next to the UQ Med school & Royal Children's Hospital - if you're familiar with the busways, you get off at RCH Herston (and not RBWH station).

Hi Hummingbird! Congratulations on your offer :)

It's not predicted until about July that some students begin moving into Herston - so when the actual first yrs move to Herston could be anywhere between July to November so it would definitely be better to live closer to St lucia. Also, as mentioned, your first two years includes classes at St Lucia anyway. Hope that helps!

from the course list here Course list for the Bachelor of Dental Science - Courses and Programs - The University of Queensland, Australia it should be CHEM1222 not CHEM1020 which didn't come up when i tried to search for it during "add course."

also from my course summary it says dent1011 and dent1030 are at st lucia campus instead of dentalschl. Only first year subject which is at dentalschl is oral1030.

Any other first year uq dents can confirm?
They are both most definitely in the dental school! DENT1011 is the course where you practice all your drilling and in DENT1030 you learn about clinical procedures and dental materials in the lab :)

congrats. If you look at course profile for dent1030 it says 3 lab classes of 22-23. so 66-69 people? i thought it was more.

Hey guys. How long does it take you to get from St Lucia to Herston by bus? Are there enough buses for everyone?
In 3rd and 4th years, would all classes be at the herston campus and all exams at st lucia?

Hi, would like to know where are the dent students usually stay, as I know there seems to be no on campus accommodation for students in Herston. Any suggestion by senior for places(streets name) which are near to the campus as well as groceries and food. I would prefer places within walking distance ( 15-25 minutes is fine) or even further places where transportation is easily available (buses, commuters). Side question, is all the classes for BDS held in Herston campus?
