Course summary

Programme overview

Bristol University Open Learning for Dentists (BUOLD21C) is a popular modular distance-learning programme for students aiming to achieve the Postgraduate Certificate or Diploma in Postgraduate Dental Studies. It provides a unique form of dental postgraduate education, designed for busy dental practitioners.

You will complete three units (60 credits) from a choice of units to achieve the certificate. Each unit provides a structured programme that involves reading, study days and assessments.

This method of study is not led by teachers in a classroom but is supported by tutors and administration at a distance, offering the flexibility to suit your personal needs. Units are written specifically for this programme and are designed to be interactive, giving you the opportunity to think and learn for yourself.

All students applying for Postgraduate Dental Studies will initially be enrolled on to the certificate, and on satisfactory completion will be transferred to the diploma.

Occasional route of study

The occasional route of study is an option for students who do not want a formal postgraduate qualification but still want to register for individual units. After successfully completing a unit, you will be awarded a transcript confirming that you have attained 20 credits; this could later be used in an application for Recognition of Prior Learning. CPD hours are also awarded. Students who have completed a unit via the occasional route may transfer to the certificate programme, subject to availability of places.
