    This programme is designed for dental graduates who wish to pursue a career in oral surgery, either in primary or secondary care services or in a university setting. It can contribute to the first two years of clinical training leading to the Membership examination of The Royal College of Surgeons.

    By entering this programme you will embark on: extensive clinical training (60 per cent) formal teaching (25 per cent) and a supervised research project (15 per cent). All the taught and clinical modules in the programme are core modules. You will however have considerable choice when selecting a topic for your research project.

    The full programme includes patient diagnosis and treatment planning, teeth and root extraction, surgical endodontics, management of dental trauma, implantology and pain management and anxiety control.

    Assessment You will be assessed at the end of the first year through a written paper and a clinical viva voce examination. At the end of the second year there are two written papers, four case presentations (two seen and two unseen) and a treatment planning exercise. You will also take part in an oral assessment of your research report.

    At the moment all three major components of the second year exams (written, clinical, research) are equally weighted.

    During an optional additional third year, you will undertake, if eligible, the Royal College of Surgeons Membership examination. This entails case presentations, clinical diagnostic and treatment planning exercises.


    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.
