University of Bristol
From a choice of 7 4 month units, you must successfully complete 3 units to achieve the Postgraduate Certificate (CPDS) or 6 units to achieve the Postgraduate Diploma (DPDS). Each unit provides a structured programme involving reading, writing and educational participation, totalling 200 hours' academic work, including study days and assessment. This method of study is not led by teachers in a classroom but is supported by tutors and administration at a distance, offering the flexibility to suit your personal needs. The units are specially written for the programme and are designed to be interactive, giving you the opportunity to think and learn for yourself. Following successful completion of the DPDS, you may carry out a research project and prepare a dissertation to achieve the MSc.
DPDS: BDS or other approved dental qualification and, ideally, you will have been qualified for at least 3 years. MSc: DPDS or equivalent. Students must be eligible for, or registered with, the General Dental Council.
The units normally available are: anxiety managment; business management skills; law and ethics; local anaesthesia; endodontics; periodontics; surgical skills 1.
