Worsley Building News Banner

The University of Leeds has been named as one of the top ten universities to study Dentistry in the UK by the Complete University Guide 2018, gaining 3 places since last year to 8th position.

The Complete University Guide attributed our strong scores for research quality and graduate prospects as the main reasons for our movement up the table. 

Our Dental School is unique in the UK for its training of the dental team, its innovative curriculum integrating clinical practice with the study of basic science, early clinical experience and excellence in research. Together with Leeds Dental Institute and Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, we provide training for dentists, dental hygienists, dental therapists, dental technicians and dental nurses under one roof. We place great emphasis on teamwork to develop students communication, leadership and professional skills, which are highly valued by employers in the provision of quality patient care. 

The School and Institute recently completed a multimillion-pound scheme of refurbishment, making our clinical and teaching facilities one of the most up to date in the country. High-quality clinical research, combined with excellence in the basic dental sciences, ensures that students receive an excellent education. Year on year, the NSS rates Leeds’ School of Dentistry highly for overall satisfaction, learning resources and the level of academic support provided.

Leeds' unique mix of inspirational teaching staff, cutting edge research insight and personalised student support and development has also been recognised in the Complete University Guide, which places the University as the highest ranked in Yorkshire

2017 has been a fantastic year so far for us, as Leeds was also named University of the Year.
