Pam astudio’r cwrs hwn

Nod y cwrs MSc hwn yw darparu dealltwriaeth academaidd drylwyr am strwythur a bioleg meinweoedd y geg a chlefydau deintyddol.

Oral and Dental disease is a world-wide problem, often leading to loss of quality of life. We aim to provide you with the knowledge and understanding in this critical area to help contribute to the future of oral health in society.

Oral biology is a broad scientific discipline that encompasses a range of basic and applied sciences.  Its teaching has significant value in translational and commercial research as applied to treating dental and oral diseases; diseases that remain prevalent in both developed and developing countries.  

Our one-year, full-time course at Cardiff University has a strong focus for educating current biological understanding relevant to microbiology, connective tissue biology, inflammatory diseases, cancer and developmental and repair processes. 

The programme is both lecture and laboratory based; benefiting from taught modules that cover areas such as Cellular & Molecular Biology and Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine and culminating in a hands-on 5-month research project.  Based at The University Hospital of Wales (the 3rd largest university hospital in the UK), you will develop technical laboratory skills and you will experience a positive and interactive teaching environment.

You will be taught by research academics with international standing and 3* and 4* publications identified within the recent Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014), placing us as one of the top-ranked institutions in the UK. Teaching will be predominately academic-led, small group, seminar-based teaching, with opportunity for critical discussion and student-centred tasks.

You will acquire a number of specific skills, such as the ability to collect, analyse and interpret a range of complex quantitative and qualitative data. You will also develop a number of valuable laboratory research-based skills, through the completion of a 5-month research project of your choice, matching the academic expertise of the School.

Graduates from this programme will have a broad spectrum of knowledge and a variety of skills, making them highly attractive both to potential employers and research establishments in this important sector.

This course offers basic research training now often expected for entering a PhD programme of study.  Subject to fee status you may apply for the MSc in Oral Biology as a 1+3 year programme of study, continuing into a PhD programme within the School upon obtaining a Masters degree qualification.

Nodweddion unigryw

Join a Dental School that is ranked in the Top 3 by the Complete University Guide 2020 based on a variety of measures to include; student satisfaction, research quality and graduate prospects. Here are some of the distinctive features for our programme:

  • Our course delivers research-led teaching and discussion in oral cell biology and microbiology, allowing you to develop critical opinion.
  • The MSc combines both taught modules and a 5-month research project (dissertation) which you can chose from a large selection of research projects supervised by senior academics with internationally cited publications within their research field.
  • The option to apply for the MSc as a 1+3 year programme of study, continuing into a PhD programme within the School upon obtaining a Master’s degree qualification.
  • You will study the principles and application of a range of research methods and techniques to enhance interpretation of research findings.
  • You’ll be studying in the only Dental School in Wales based in the 3rd largest University Hospital in the UK.
The studying was intense but the material we learnt, and the delivery of the lectures was fantastic. The support and open-door policy from all tutors were really valuable. One of my favourite parts of the course was integrating with other MSc students as we built a postgraduate family.

Mae'n rhaid i ymgeiswyr sydd angen fisa Haen 4 i astudio yn y DU gyflwyno cymhwyster iaith Saesneg derbyniol er mwyn bodloni gofynion UKVI (Fisâu a Mewnfudo y DU).

Euogfarnau troseddol

Nid yw'n ofynnol i chi gwblhau gwiriad DBS (Gwasanaeth Gwahardd Datgelu) na darparu Tystysgrif Ymddygiad Da i astudio'r cwrs hwn.

Os ydych chi'n destun unrhyw amod trwydded neu gyfyngiad monitro ar hyn o bryd a allai effeithio ar eich gallu i gwblhau'ch astudiaethau yn llwyddiannus, bydd gofyn i chi ddatgelu'ch cofnod troseddol. Mae'r amodau'n cynnwys, ond heb fod yn gyfyngedig i:

  • mynediad at gyfrifiaduron neu ddyfeisiau sy'n gallu storio delweddau
  • defnyddio offer / dyfeisiau rhyngrwyd a chyfathrebu
  • cyrffyw
  • rhyddid i symud
  • cyswllt â phobl sy'n gysylltiedig â Phrifysgol Caerdydd.

Strwythur y cwrs

This is a 12-month full-time multidisciplinary modular programme consisting of four taught core modules (part 1) to a total of 120 credits and a laboratory-based research project (part 2) performed over five months (60 credits).

Part 1: Taught Component

During Part 1, the core modules are delivered concurrently over a 26-week period.

Part 2: Research Project

Following satisfactory completion of Part 1, you will progress to the dissertation, which commences in April. You will be required to complete and submit a laboratory-based research project dissertation and present your work as a poster presentation (total 60 credits) to obtain a Master’s degree.

The research projects offered all laboratory-based. We have an extensive collaborative network with co-supervisors/collaborators based in the Schools of Medicine, Biosciences and Pharmacy. You will be asked to propose a first and second choice of research project from a range of research titles, and in most cases students will be able to pursue their first choice. 

Those who do not achieve the MSc in Oral Biology may be eligible for the exit awards of a Postgraduate Diploma in Oral Biology (120 credits) or a Postgraduate Certificate (60 credits).

Mae'r modiwlau a ddangosir yn esiampl o'r cwricwlwm arferol. Byddant yn cael eu hadolygu cyn blwyddyn academaidd 2020/21. Bydd y modiwlau terfynol yn cael eu cyhoeddi erbyn mis Medi 2020.

This is a 12-month full-time multidisciplinary modular programme consisting of four taught core modules (part 1) to a total of 120 credits and a laboratory-based research project (part 2) studied over five months and worth 60 credits.

The course encompasses a wide breadth of biomedical research that is also applicable to clinical dentistry and medicine, derived from the research strengths available within the School of Dentistry. The course has a strong research focus in the taught element, as well as the laboratory research projects and it is envisaged as an entry for postgraduate research.

Mae'r Brifysgol wedi ymrwymo i ddarparu amrywiaeth eang o opsiynau modiwl lle’n bosibl. Ond byddwch yn ymwybodol er y byddwn yn gwneud pob ymdrech i gynnig dewis, gall hyn gael ei gyfyngu mewn rhai amgylchiadau. Y rheswm am hyn yw'r ffaith mai dim ond nifer cyfyngedig o leoedd sydd ar gael ar rai modiwlau, a gaiff eu dyrannu ar sail y cyntaf i'r felin. Mae'n ofynnol i fodiwlau eraill sicrhau isafswm nifer o fyfyrwyr cyn gallu eu cynnal, er mwyn gwneud yn siŵr y gellir cyflwyno addysg o ansawdd priodol. Gall modiwlau gael eu cyfyngu oherwydd gwrthdaro yn yr amserlen hefyd, ac er bod y Brifysgol yn ymdrechu i amharu cyn lleied â phosibl ar eich dewis, byddai'n syniad da i chi ofyn am gyngor gan yr Ysgol berthnasol am y dewisiadau modiwl sydd ar gael.
