During this Dental Studies course from University of Bristol you will complete three units (60 credits) from a choice of units 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. Units are written specifically for this programme and are designed to be interactive, giving you the opportunity to think and learn for yourself. Following successful completion of the diploma, you may carry out a research project and prepare a dissertation to achieve an MSc.
The aim of this programme is to inform and enhance the current practice of busy dental practitioners. In future, some of the units may be helpful for gaining a contract with the NHS to provide clinical services at Tier 2 level, which may be introduced in England.
