Course Summary

This full-time, two-year Masters programme combines theory, practical elements, teaching and research with personal treatment sessions and new-patient diagnostic clinics. The programme aims to equip students with the skills to understand the principles of normal and abnormal facial growth, diagnose malocclusions, identify aetiological factors, develop appropriate treatment plans, appreciate the scope and limitations of orthodontic treatment, treat malocclusions to a high standard of outcome, and to be aware of the factors associated with stability of the result.


The programme aims to develop the academic, clinical and technical skills required to enable graduates to undertake the independent practice of orthodontics, or for further research in this field.


During the programme, students are able to attend a whole range of different clinics and also regularly attend new patient clinics in small groups. The institute strongly encourages students to apply for prizes at national and international conferences and the programme has a history of students winning prestigious prizes at the British Orthodontic Conference and the European Orthodontic Conference.
