Course content

​The programme offers specialist training building on an initial qualification in dental technology.

There are no required attendances to Cardiff Metropolitan University for this programme as it is delivered via distance learning. This will necessitate students accessing video conferencing over a PC with a broadband connection. There will be weekly meetings within each module. Students are expected to carry out at least 6 hours of practical work per week in their laboratory/workplace throughout the academic year.

Course Content​​

Completion of 60 credits at each stage is required. At Certificate and Diploma levels, students study modules from a selected specialist area, which may include fixed prosthodontics (conservation), removable prosthodontics (dentures) and orthodontics. For example, module titles include, complex complete and partial dentures, precision attachments, implants, fixed and myofunctional orthodontic appliances.

There are several Work Based Learning modules involving case studies, personal and portfolio development. Research modules are also available preparing candidates for the Masters' if required. At this level a research project and preparation of a publishable article must be undertaken. The research topic is agreed between the student and their allocated supervisor.

Learning & Teaching​

​Attendance for this programme is via video conference. This will necessitate students accessing a PC or Internet compatible device with a broadband connection. There are no required attendances to campus.

Assessment

Certificate and Diploma Modules are assessed by practical and theoretical examinations, written or practical assignments or a combination of these. The Masters' component (part 2) is assessed by a research project worth 60 credits.

Employability & Careers​

The qualifications allow application for the post of Senior Dental Technician and above within the health service (at MT0 3/A4C Band 6 or higher). Successfully completing the programmes would also allow those in the private sector to carry out more demanding work with an associated higher earning potential.
