The postgraduate programme in periodontology is designed to provide practitioners with in-depth evidence-based knowledge and technical skills that can be applied in their practice whilst pursuing a postgraduate education degree.
The structure of the programme allows practitioners to experience the surgical techniques in periodontology. Students will work closely together with the periodontal team to develop understanding, teamwork skills and confidence in treatment planning for advanced periodontal cases and in developing their own case portfolio. Students will be taught by our internationally recognised academic staff and consultants as well as visiting experts in the field.
Virtual open week
This programme will be covered in our Oral and Dental Sciences webinar.

This modular programme is divided into three sections – Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma and MSc. All students are admitted to the MSc in the first instance but can choose to exit the programme after completing the Certificate or Diploma.
Three theoretical/practical modules are delivered over a minimum of six study days during year one, as well as through distance-learning material and self-directed study. Practical exercises will take place in our phantom head lab or anatomy centre. After completing year one, candidates can exit the programme with a Postgraduate Certificate in Periodontology or carry on to year two.
A further three modules are delivered over a minimum of six study days in year two, through distance-learning material and self-directed work. After successfully completing years one and two, you may exit the programme with a Postgraduate Diploma in Periodontology.
After a further year, an MSc will be awarded on successful completion of a research project and dissertation. For full-time students, the dissertation will be completed within the first two years together with the taught modules.
