Bioleg y Geg (MSc)

Mae’r cwrs blwyddyn hyn yn darparu dealltwriaeth academaidd drylwyr am strwythur a bioleg meinweoedd y geg. Yn ogystal sut maent yn rhyngweithio â microfflora’r geg wrth arwain at ddinistrio patholegol. Rydym yn defnyddio’r wybodaeth hon wrth gyflwyno dyrchafiad drosiadol therapiwtig a diagnostig, sydd nid yn unig yn berthnasol i Ddeintyddiaeth Glinigol ond hefyd i nifer o ddisgyblaethau meddygol eraill.

This 12-month full-time MSc course explores the interdisciplinary field of oral biology, for those from either a clinical or scientific background. It provides the opportunity to develop master level understanding and knowledge of Oral Biology for future biomedical researchers.

The course consists of four taught core modules and a five-month laboratory research project leading to a dissertation. It encompasses oral biomedical research that is applicable to clinical dentistry and medicine. The course has a strong disease and research focus and is a pathway to further postgraduate research; an ideal course for those seeking an in-depth biological training in a medically relevant discipline

Nodweddion unigryw

  • Gain an in-depth understanding of oral biology in health and disease

  • The course offers an insight into modern therapeutic approaches

  • Students will develop critical analysis, presentation and laboratory research skills.

  • This is a hybrid course, which provides taught components and a laboratory-based research project.

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.

Sut y caf fy addysgu?

All taught elements are delivered within the School of Dentistry. Students may attend other Schools (such as Medicine, Pharmacy or Biosciences) to undertake their research project.

A range of teaching methods is used on this programme, including:

  • Lectures
  • Paper discussion groups

  • Small group teaching

  • Self-directed learning

  • Oral scientific presentation run as seminars

  • Poster presentation

  • Laboratory research skills

Teaching is delivered via small group teaching. Students may arrange for additional mentoring as required via the module leaders.

Sut y caf fy nghefnogi?

You will be allocated a personal tutor, who will be able to provide pastoral support throughout the course. This tutor will also be responsible for ensuring your academic progress and will meet you formally on a regular basis.


You will receive feedback within two weeks of completing assessments. 

Sut y caf fy asesu?

Throughout the course, you will be issued with student assessments that may take the form of essays, presentations and reports. These will be used to monitor your progress.

Module assessments are used to assess learning outcomes and allow you to express Master’s level concepts of understanding, analysis, evaluation and presentation. You will be required to pass all four module assessments in the taught element and the dissertation with a minimum pass mark of 50%.

You must pass both parts of the course in order to obtain your MSc. You must pass Part 1 in order to progress to Part 2.

Pa sgiliau y byddaf yn eu hymarfer a’u datblygu?

  • In-depth knowledge and understanding of oral biology in disease, health, repair, regeneration including cancer.

  • Develop research skills to formulate hypothesis-driven research and design suitability controlled experiments with appropriate statistical evaluation.

  • Wide knowledge of research technologies and practical research experience

  • Critically analyse, synthesize and evaluate cell and molecular Oral Biology including clinical conditions in order to drive modern treatment options required to prevent or treat Oral Diseases.

  • Develop advanced communication skills

  • Demonstrate problem solving skills and plan research independently

  • Clear concise scientific presentation skills.

  • Develop critical discussion skills

  • Undertake research for your professional development.  

A master degree in Oral Biology provides you with the skills to pursue a future career in higher education to teach or perform biomedical research in University and Industry, including clinical academia.  Whilst the focus is in Oral Biology the knowledge you will learn is transferable to other medical disciplines.

This course is a foundation for further PhD qualification leading to academic dental research or teaching career paths.  Alternatively this course could open up careers in the biomedical or pharmaceutical industry.
