Dean’s Message

Professor thomas flemmigThank you for visiting our webpage for prospective undergraduate students.

The HKU Bachelor of Dental Surgery degree is one of the most applied to in HKU and consistently attracts top-quality students, who are well sought after by employers after graduation. In addition, the curriculum has been designed to train students to learn how to learn and become independent critical thinkers in addition to skilled dentists.

What is currently most acclaimed about our undergraduate programme, both in the region and internationally, is our competency-based, student-centred, problem-based learning (PBL) programme, which has produced a new genre of skilled, empathic graduates who are well-versed in the practice of modern dental, oral, and maxillofacial sciences.If you are reading this message, then it is very likely that you are considering enrolment in our undergraduate programme—a programme that is second to none in terms of the unique education we offer. I do hope that you find our programme attractive and the information provided in this website adequate. If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact us (dentke@hku.hk).

As the Dean of this great institution, I will be waiting to extend you the warmest welcome when you arrive here, and I can assure you of a wonderful learning environment that will fulfil all your educational and personal goals.

Good luck in your search! I hope to meet you soon.

What Our Students Say

Lakshman P. Samaranayake“As a BDS I student, I’ve found that PBL provides great freedom for acquiring knowledge. Compared with high-school education, students using the PBL approach can organise their time in their own way, according to their own learning styles.”
Gordon Hui, BDS III
