Dentistry Entry Discussion and Questions

Agree that it’s very expensive, though I don’t think it can be compared to Bond. Remember that those expenses can be placed on FEE HELP so it doesn’t need to be an up front payment per se. You can pay this back once you’ve started working as a dentist. This is in contrast to Bond, where the FEE HELP limit is capped at well under half of what the total degree ends up costing.

There used to be a very excellent one shared here, but I believe it recently disappeared? Has someone managed to unearth a copy? Crow Yamster?
We have not managed to recover it :(

donggii what sort of requirements are you after? Do you mean prerequisite subjects or the ATAR/UCAT scores required for each of the schools?

If you have questions about any specific schools we should (hopefully) be able to give you an answer here :)

It's both pre-req subjects and GPA/UCAT scores for non-standard accepting unis (Latrobe, University Adelaide, CSU). Also, whether those unis are looking at just gpa/atar or both. I had a look at their websites, but i found them to be quite vague. Any help would be much appreciated

I took a screenshot earlier this year from MSO, sorry for the low resolution. I believe this is the 2017 version, but it should be the same?

Hi Crow. I applied for Griffith dentistry as a non-standard applicant. Who's going to determine my offer? QTAC or the university?
QTAC/UAC do the work on behalf of Griffith. Griffith will instruct them on how to calculate GPA (as Griffith dentistry calculates GPA differently to what other universities do) and then offers are distributed by the TACs.

Thanks for the reply.
Does Griffith dentistry has seats assigned for school leavers or graduate entry students. Which one preferred there

No assigned places, but Non-Standard students are preferred because they give a gpa of a 7 to a 99.95 so it is much harder for a school student to get a position, which means the cut off is like 99.80

Thankyou
What about UQ? Do graduate entry students get preference there?

They don't have graduate entry, just undergraduate school leaver and non-standard, but they are compared equally so they compete against each other. You need a 99 Atar without bonus points if you are a gap year student, and probably a high 80s low 90s Ucat

The main selection criteria for UQ dentistry is UCAT score (the same cutoff is applied to school-leaver and non-standard applicants). School leavers need to meet a 99 ATAR cutoff, and non-standards need to meet a 6.5 GPA cutoff (5.8 if they’re a current UQ student). ATAR/GPA is a hurdle requirement only. I’ll leave you to decide whether a 99 ATAR or 6.5 GPA is “easier” to achieve.
