How much does it cost for the whole thing?

Would they accept UK's GCSE students?

If i complete it, can I guarantee my entrance to UCC for dentistry?

Are there any online courses for premed which, when completed, can get me accepted in UCC?

Best of luck with your dentistry career. I've tried to answer your questions as best I can.


How much does it cost for the whole thing? The current fees for graduate Irish, UK & EU students are 8,120 per year (x 5 years) = approx 40,000. Irish students who have never attended university before are paid-for by the State.


Would they accept UK's GCSE students?
If i complete it, can I guarantee my entrance to UCC for dentistry? The usual route of entry to these courses is the Irish Leaving Cert (the final exam at the end of "high school"). However, UK A-levels, the International Baccalaureat and some US school-leaving qualifications are acceptable, as are previous university degrees. The International Education Office of UCC seem very helpful - UCC: International Education Office : (http://www.ucc.ie/international/)

Are there any online courses for premed which, when completed, can get me accepted in UCC?Unfortunately, No.

British students need A levels to enter any of the irish medical programmes. (Or a degree for GEP). The reason why you may fail to understand who you are not eligible is due to the differences in the UK/Eire education systems. Irish students take highers (Usually 5 or 6 grade A1's to get into med or dent?) - these highers are the equivilent of British A levels.

If you want to get into medicine or dentistry in Ireland, this is a lot harder than getting into medicine in the UK. I believe that UK requirements are due to rise to AAAb as opposed to AABb, in Ireland you will NEED four complete A levels (not three A levels and 1 AS), these four A levels will need to be at the A grade (as the irish schools look purely at academic performance)

Due to the lower requirements, and the fact that UK schools look at more than just academic performence - the UK is an 'fairer' option.

Good luck.
