Course Overview:

This is a higher degree than a PhD. It is based solely on previously published or unpublished original work forming a substantial, coherent body of knowledge.

Objectives: There is no coursework or clinical component associated with the degree. The DDSc is considered to be an untaught degree in that you will not be working with a supervisor. You are expected to show strong evidence of an ability to work independently at an advanced level. You probably already have a MDSc, DClinDent or PhD degree.
Entry Requirements:

You must hold the BDSc (or equivalent) degree, or in exceptional circumstances another qualification (e.g. BSc) that is recognised by the Faculty as appropriate. You must have held this degree for at least four years before commencing the DDSc.

Core Participation Requirements:
