Your performance in modules of 30 credits will be assessed through a combination of coursework (essays questions) and unseen written examinations. For modules of 15 credits, one single assessment will normally be used (either essay questions or unseen written examinations), which contributes 100% to your final mark.
The dissertation is assessed as a written research report, including a research protocol and a scientific manuscript ready for submission to a peer-reviewed indexed dental journal.
The study time and assessment methods detailed above are typical and give you a good indication of what to expect. However, they may change if the course modules change.
If you are applying from overseas, you must have a good command of English and be able to apply this in an academic environment to complete the programme successfully. You can apply without submitting evidence of your English proficiency, but you will be required to provide certificated proof of your competence in English before being offered an unconditional place. Strong candidates may be given a conditional offer, which will be subject to providing an English proficiency certificate within a specific timeframe. Therefore, we advise all candidates to make early arrangements to take an English proficiency test and preferably submit a copy with their application.
