Dental Studies

Bristol University Open Learning for Dentists is a very popular modular distance learning programme for students aiming to achieve the Certificate or Diploma in Postgraduate Dental Studies. It provides a unique form of dental postgraduate education, designed for busy dental practitioners. Students must complete three units (60 credits) from a choice of 11 to achieve the certificate or six units (120 credits) to achieve the diploma. Each unit provides a structured programme that involves reading, study days and assessments. 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 diploma, students may carry out a research project and prepare a dissertation to achieve an MSc.

Entry requirements

Applicants must hold the BDS or other approved dental qualification and have been qualified for at least one year. Students must be eligible for, or registered with, the General Dental Council.
