I chose to study dental technology for the career I can pursue in this artistic field. I enjoy the process of creating appliances knowing that it will have a positive impact on a patients life.
The course at Leeds is both hands-on and academically challenging. The facilities at Leeds offers in-house training to the whole dental team. Where possible, we take classes with other dental students. This allows each of us to see the important role we play in the over-all service we offer as a dental team.
One of the best things of this course is the work experience we have to do. We spend one day a week at a commercial dental laboratory. I get to apply what I have learnt on my course and I also get first-hand experience of how a commercial laboratory operates. I feel it is very important in preparing us for entering employment once we graduate.
I couldnt ask for a better experience than the past year at Leeds. The tutors and staff are really friendly and helpful and the University provides a lot of support for mature and international students, with lots of activities
and groups to join around campus.
