    In common with all specialty training programmes in the UK, this programme runs for three years and incorporates a Masters degree. The full programme combines the taught elements and research of the MSc with a mandatory clinical training module.

    The School places special emphasis on:

    * Contemporary orthodontic treatment techniques
    * Research methods and biostatistics
    * The development of a questioning approach to the speciality of orthodontics

    This specialty training programme is designed for those who wish to undertake full orthodontic training, but who do not wish to practice orthodontics in the UK.

    The taught elements are based around small group problem-based seminars resourced by a series of didactic seminars that together form a core teaching session.

    The clinical training module involves attendance at clinics in the Dental School and associated local Hospital Trusts. During this time students provide treatment for a carefully selected group of patients under direct supervision of Consultant Orthodontists.

    The research methods and biostatistics training is used in the planning and implementation of a research project and its presentation as a dissertation; advice and guidance will be available from a group of highly experienced researchers. It is hoped that the research topic will examine an issue of relevance to students' future work and will also provide the basis for a refereed publication.

    Course aims The aim of the taught clinical component is to give the student an understanding of the scientific basis of orthodontics. There is a particular emphasis on current thinking relevant to the diagnosis, treatment planning and clinical management of patients. Module details

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
