Course content

This course is an academic and clinical programme leading to the award of either an MSc in Implantology or Postgraduate Diploma in Implantology depending on which route students take. In this programme, students treat patients provided for them under expert supervision. Students have the opportunity to participate in the full spectrum of contemporary implant practice where all forms of bone and soft-tissue grafting are undertaken.

The course offers knowledge and expertise in the science and practice of implantology, from theoretical science through restorative treatment planning to clinical practice in the direct management of patients requiring fixed and removable implant-retained prostheses.

The course offers you the opportunity to explore and analyse existing and developing theories and concepts underpinning the field of implantology, and it can facilitate professional and personal growth through a wide range of educational and direct clinical experiences.

Distinctive features:

• High quality, interdisciplinary research environment.
• Excellent clinical and academic facilities.
