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.
The face-to-face component normally takes place for nine consecutive days in Year 1 and 11 consecutive days in Year 2 at Rangoonwala College of Dental Sciences and Research Centre, Pune, India.
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.
