Programme description

This is a 4-Year PhD programme that allows you to combine clinical experience in any one of a number of dental specialties with vigorous research training.

We are currently the only UK university to offer a formal four-year PhD, and it represents an exciting development in our postgraduate portfolio.

Currently offered in the clinical disciplines of endodontics, fixed and removable prosthodontics, periodontics, oral and maxillofacial surgery and orthodontics, you can combine research with clinical experience during the entire tenure of your time in Manchester.

You will select a research project and supervisor in the normal manner and then indicate that you wish to undertake the four-year programme. A clinical supervisor will also be assigned to you appropriate to your chosen clinical specialty.

Training and development

All of our postgraduate research students attend the Doctoral Academy Training Programme delivered by the Centre for Academic and Researcher Development (CARD).

The programme provides key transferable skills in areas such as commercial awareness, academic writing and public engagement. This training equips our postgraduates with the tools to progress beyond their research degree into influential positions within academia, industry and consultancy.

The emphasis is on enhancing skills critical to developing early-stage researchers and professionals, whether they relate to effective communication, disseminating research findings and project management skills.

See the training and development page for more information.
