We provide a broad range of taught master's courses that offer pathways for clinical specialisation and for developing research training in the biomedical and life sciences.
Our master's courses are delivered by internationally recognised clinicians and research academics who provide a friendly, supportive and professional environment for both clinical and biomedical science focused study programmes.
Our clinical course can provide eligibility to sit relevant national clinical specialist examinations.
Non-clinical courses are designed to provide the basic research training often now expected for entering into a PhD programme of study and may be used to permit entry into a three-year PhD programme of study within the School of Dentistry.
