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?

You will be taught via clinical teaching and instruction; a seminar programme; case review and interactive clinical presentations; guided critical reading and journal clubs; research forum presentations and critical appraisal of research methodologies; individual research guidance; attendance at regional and national meetings of relevance; and self-directed learning and presentation in small group forums to encourage a problem-based learning method.

Sut y caf fy nghefnogi?

All modules make extensive use of Cardiff University’s Virtual Learning Environment, Learning Central, on which you will find course materials and links to related materials.  You will be supervised when undertaking your dissertation, and your supervisor will schedule regular meetings to discuss progress, provide advice and guidance, and give written feedback on a draft.

Opportunities to reflect on abilities and performance are made available through the Learning Central ‘Personal Development Planning’ module and through scheduled meetings with personal tutors.

Students will receive written feedback on all assessments, in addition to oral feedback on assessed oral presentations.

Sut y caf fy asesu?

There are summative and formative assessments throughout the three-year programme with research being assessed through a final dissertation in year three.

Cardiff University is a leading centre for orthodontic training and provides a world class learning environment for the aspirational clinician.

John, MScD Orthodontics

Graduates from this programme should be equipped to pursue careers in orthodontic specialisms.

The MScD in Orthodontics programme is the longest running at over 40 years now. It provided me with the opportunity to undertake valuable research alongside clinical training. The nurses and consultants in the department look after you very well and are always friendly and approachable. Cardiff has been a rewarding place to be both socially and academically and has provided me with all the skills I need to continue in my long career as an orthodontist.
