How Will I Learn to be Assessed ?
A wide variety of teaching methods are used in the Dental Programme, reflecting the breadth of knowledge and
skills you must develop as a dental student. These methods include Lectures, Classes, Tutorials, Practicals and Clinical Placements.
Assessment in each year of the programme combines continuous assessment and end-of-year examinations. In
Degree Year 1, Degree Year 2 and Degree Year 3, students' continuous assessment grade is derived from integrated class examinations at the end of each semester. The end-of-year examination is also integrated, with written and practical elements.
From Degree Year 4, continuous assessment has academic and clinical components. Students will continue to be
assessed academically by examinations and their clinical activity will be graded at each clinical session. This helps staff identify students who may require extra support and put such help in place for them. Each year there will be Practical and Oral Exams as well as a Final Written Exam to assess each student.
What career and further education opportunities are open to me when I graduate?
A variety of career pathways are open to new dental graduates. The final career for many graduates is general
practice,although a minority may aim to be a consultant in a hospital dental service, a senior clinical academic in a
teaching hospital, or a specialist practitioner.
