Teaching methods - what to expect

You will be taught mostly online through King’s E-learning and Teaching Service (KEATS) which provides information, interactive questions, assignments, use of bibliographic databases and reading material. Our students participate in online tutorials and discussion groups, interacting with expert tutors and their fellow students. Face-to-face lectures and hands-on training take place in blocks in the first two years. Students are required to undertake and submit four cases of clinical work in their place of work.

Please note - The provision of any clinical opinions, treatment planning, treatment plans and/or any advice in relation to care of individual patients will not be provided by the teachers and staff of the course. Patient treatment and care is the sole responsibility of the treating clinician. Advice regarding the suitability of a clinical case for submission for the clinical module can be given at the tutor’s discretion.

The following table will give you an idea of what a typical year might look like as you progress through your studies. Typically, one credit equates to 10 hours of work.

Assessment

    Your performance will be assessed through a combination of coursework and written examinations. Forms of assessment may typically include written assignments and clinical case reports. Coursework contributes approximately 40% and examinations approximately 60% to your final mark with the exception of the Clinical Practice module which is assessed entirely through coursework, and the Maxillofacial Prosthetic Rehabilitation Research Report module which is assessed on a dissertation.
