Final year students reminded to submit their DFT application

11 September 2018


The application process for dental foundation training places in 2019 will be closing on Monday 17 September 2018 at 16:00. Final year dental students who wish to undertake DFT in 2019 must ensure that they submit their application through the online portal by the deadline; the same applies to any graduates of 2018 who did not take up a place this year but wish to undertake DFT next year.


Make sure you read the application guidance fully and submit the application in good time as late applications will not be accepted.

The BDA will be delivering preparation courses for the assessment day to final year dental students during the autumn.


Support during your final year at dental school

Keep an eye out for the BDA's final year 'interview skills' lecture at your dental school, and also the Getting your first job guide, plus a one-day DFT intensive workshop in London, developed by Dr Helen Falcon MBE, former Chair of COPDEND.

We have a range of resources and advice for students and young dentists starting out in their careers.

BDA members can download our Into Practice app, which has information and tips for newly-qualified dentists on getting ahead in your career.
