Course content

Established for more than 35 years, and one of the longest-running clinical training programmes in the UK, the Orthodontics MScD course is designed to provide clinical and academic training for future specialists in clinical orthodontics in a highly professional and rewarding environment.

This three-year full-time course aims to equip you with the skills needed to perform as a competent specialist in orthodontics, with focus on the clinical, theoretical and research areas required for provision of adequate patient care.

Open to home, EU and overseas students, successful completion of the course will result in the award of a Master’s degree in Orthodontics. The course is also recognised for training purposes by the Royal Colleges for the Membership in Orthodontics of both Edinburgh and the Bicollegiate examination.

Didactic, self-directed and problem-based modular teaching extends throughout the three-year programme. The course provides clinical training within the teaching hospital and in district units in Swansea, Newport, and North Glamorgan. The first two years of the course consist of structured research.
