Flexible learning postgraduate programmes
The Dental Institute has pioneered flexible (blended) learning in dentistry, providing teaching for postgraduate students from many different countries, including the UK for nearly two decades. This is the perfect solution if you choose to stay at home but want to further your learning and gain a higher qualification. Overall costs are kept to a minimum and are considerably lower than studying full-time in London. You can learn anywhere and choose where you are assessed.
Induction & Training
Students on postgraduate programmes attend a comprehensive generic induction programme of five days spread over the first five weeks. There is an introduction to clinical governance in the UK and how best to approach master’s studies and dental research. Master’s students in the restorative dentistry disciplines come together one day per week in their first year for didactic and hands-on training.
The Institute also runs a structured postgraduate programme consisting of a tutorial course in cell and developmental biology, a techniques course and a high profile seminar series tailored to students’ needs. Students organise their own science club and a monthly journal club.
The Institute has excellent research and clinical facilities funded by an ongoing programme of development from competitive external sources. Each research group offers a wide range of modern techniques with access to appropriate equipment and facilities.
