JCU Dental School in-person meetings in Canada
JCU Dental School in-person meetings will be held in Canada in June 2014.
Faculty Executive Officer Pamela Stronach and Mrs. Sandra Hurlock, Associate Faculty Registrar, will be visiting Canada in June and hosting in-person meetings for those interested in gaining entry into the JCU Dental School. This is a great opportunity for prospective dental school students to talk about how studying in the Bachelor of Dental Surgery (BDS) program at the tropical James Cook University Dental School could be right for them.
Vancouver: Tuesday, June 17, 2014
Calgary: Wednesday, June 18, 2014
Toronto: Thursday, June 19 & Friday, June 20, 2014
About the Meetings
Although the in-person meetings for dentistry are not part of the admissions process, it is strongly recommended that high-achieving applicants attend these meetings, as in the past the majority of successful dentistry students who received offers to the JCU dental program participated in the in-person meetings. Many students who participated in the in-person meetings received early offers prior to the application deadline closing!
