What will I learn?

Programme description

Our PhD/MPhil Dental Health Sciences programme enables you to undertake a research project that will improve understanding of Dental Health Sciences.

Research in dental health sciences seeks to improve the evidence base for dental public health, service delivery and clinical interventions to inform dental policy, dental commissioning clinical practice and, ultimately, improve patient and population health.

The team has strong links with the NHS and Public Health England in the north-west of England, and provides advice on the design and management of public health programmes and dental services.

We have a strong reputation for the delivery of high quality systematic reviews, predominantly through our support of the Cochrane Oral Health Review Group (COHG), an international network of healthcare professionals, researchers and consumers.

Teaching and learning

PhD/MPhil programmes are based on individual research projects that last three to four years (PhD) or one year (MPhil), working with a specific Primary Supervisor and Co-Supervisor(s).

Applicants are specifically matched with a Primary Supervisor and individual project based on their research interests and background.

Career opportunities

Your postgraduate research degree will open up a range of career opportunities after you graduate.
