This program provides a foundation in key materials science principles and training skills for successful research and publication and for the development of the next generation of materials and processes.

There are very few aspects of dentistry that do not rely on materials, and the science of dental materials is arguably the most important subject that a dental practitioner, allied teacher, or researcher should learn. The dental materials market also rapidly evolves and has a quick turnover of products. Further education in dental materials science will be beneficial for daily clinical practice and successful completion of this programme will provide greater employability in dental practice and when applying to undertake postgraduate research degrees

The one-year full-time (and two-year part-time) Masters program welcomes students from a variety of backgrounds from clinical practitioners and dental technicians who are required to teach the subject, to those pursuing a career in a related research field, whether having a clinical or non-clinical undergraduate education, and whether from the UK or abroad.

Why Study this Course?

  • Tuition from world charges in relevant clinical and scientific fields.
  • A purpose-built, integrated Birmingham Dental Hospital and School of Dentistry (the first to be built in the UK for almost 40 years) designed to offer world-class research facilities and a modern learning environment for over 600 students and trainees.
  • Training in fundamental aspects of the biological interaction of materials.
