UK applicants: Diploma in Professional Studies (Maxillofacial Prosthetics & Technology) or a degree in Dental Technology with two years' post-qualification technical experience. International applicants: a dental technology qualification and at least two years' graduate experience. Overseas applicants will not be expected to have completed the Diploma in Professional Studies (Maxillofacial Prosthetics & Technology) but must have a focused interest in maxillofacial and craniofacial technology.
Applications must be made online using King's online application portal and a non-refundable application fee of £40 applies.
Completed applications (which will normally consist of an online application form, both references, a transcript of previous degrees and a CV) will be considered on a "first come first served" according to the date of completion of the application. Applications will be initially considered by two academic members of staff. The initial decision will be to either confirm the offer of a place without an interview, invite you for an interview, hold your application for further consideration following the official closing date for applications or reject. It is expected that the majority of applicants offered a place will be required to attend an interview beforehand. You should be expect to receive this initial decision within three weeks of the date of completion of the application, although this may be slightly longer at peak periods near to the closing date. Applications held for further consideration will be shortlisted within one month of the official closing date. All interviews will be completed by 31 March and applicants notified shortly afterwards. Applications received after the closing date will be held as reserve applications, in case there are vacancies or places become available.
You should show how the degree will fit into your career plan and demonstrate a focussed interest in maxillofacial and craniofacial technology. Please submit a separate CV in addition to the application form.
The deadline for applications is 01 April 2016 for 2016 entry. Prior to this date all applications will be given equal consideration and considered on their individual merits. After this date applications will be considered subject to the availability of places, thus we encourage you to submit your application as soon as possible. Please note that funding deadlines may be earlier.
Maxillofacial & Craniofacial Technology ground-breaking programme open to both dental technicians and dentists. Teaches clinical and technical aspects of facial prostheses; ocular prostheses; orbital and skull cranioplasties and obturators. Covers: recognising oral disease; infections; skin lesions related to intra- and extra-oral prostheses; core modules in all restorative disciplines.
Ground breaking programme open to both dental technicians and dentists. For both overseas and UK applicants the programme provides training to a specialist level in maxillofacial and craniofacial technology.
Two taught modules, covering the scientific and clinical basis of maxillofacial and craniofacial technology, usually assessed by written examination;
One clinical module, involving supervised clinical practice and examined by a mixture of case studies on treated and unseen patients, a clinical/technical log and an oral examination;
One research module, involving the submission of a research project report including a literature review, with an oral defence of the research.
As we are seeking to identify your suitability for this clinical environment, we expect our interviewees to adopt the dress code required of clinical dental students at King's. Further information will be given should you choose to apply. Entry to the programme is strictly dependent upon occupational health clearance that you are able to conduct exposure prone procedures (EPPs) before you start clinical work. This will assess your hepatitis B surface antigen and hepatitis C antibody status, HIV and TB status following the completion of a health questionnaire and a further health check before or at enrolment. If offered a place on the course, overseas students are advised to be tested locally and send the results of these checks with the questionnaire, prior to a separate full test in the UK at the College's Occupational Health Department before term begins. All offers of a place on a programme are made subject to a satisfactory criminal conviction disclosure. If you are from overseas or have never lived in the UK before, you should contact the relevant authorities in your home country to arrange for the equivalent check to be conducted and/or a certificate of good conduct to be issued.
Graduates will be capable of assuming a more responsible position within the field of Maxillofacial Technology. Additionally, graduates will be able to offer experience in advanced technologies and assist in the management of research projects.
