Course details
Course UCAS code: B750
Qualification type:
  • BSc (Hons), Full-time , Duration: 3 Years
Course Summary:
On this course you'll learn all about the structure, function and maintenance of oral and dental tissues. You'll work on innovative research projects, such as the molecular and cellular bases of regeneration and tissue repair. We'll help you to develop the technical skills needed by employers. This degree includes an opportunity to go on a research-informed placement where you'll learn how science can provide commercial healthcare solutions. You'll also have the chance to work with the local community to promote the public understanding of oral health. You'll study eight core modules across three years. The modules will progressively develop your ability to learn independently. Although all modules are compulsory, you can choose to focus on the subjects that interest you most during Years 2 and 3. Year 1 The first year introduces you to the organisation and function of the human body with a special focus on the head and neck. You'll study the structure of cells and the biochemical processes within them as well as the anatomy of the thorax, head and neck. You'll learn about major physiological processes alongside cellular function and body structure. You will also learn about important bacterial pathogens, especially those causing oral disease, and how the body responds to infection. Year 2 The second year provides an overview of the effect that growth, ageing and certain diseases have on wellbeing. You'll also learn about dental materials and how to use them safely. This course will develop your skills in experimental design, and your ability to analyse results and identify the impact of your work on oral health. Year 3 During the third year you'll carry out a research-informed placement that builds on subjects you developed an interest in during Year 2. You'll study research statistics and ethics, and learn how to critically appraise scientific literature. The third year will give you a deep understanding of key topics in bio-dental science and technology. You'll also gain skills in laboratory and qualitative research. This School of Clinical Dentistry course includes lectures, seminars, online learning, lab classes and human dissection. In addition to the placement, you'll carry out an individual project and a group project.

"You aight, duck?" It’s a sort of mantra in Sheffield. An assortment of dubious endearing terms, generously drenched in Henderson’s Relish, served with a side of lowkey whining about The Arctic Monkeys. Before you know it you’ve caught the duck bug, whether you’re relaxing in one of the pubs on West Street or enjoying one of the massive nights out at the Union. Everything is within walking distance, but uphill – eventually you develop Viking legs and stop getting muscle soreness. The Peak District itself is part of town – ride the paternoster to the top of the Arts Tower and see for yourself. Aye duck, it’s reyt good.

    I absolutely love the University of Sheffield! The student union lives up to its great reputation, the city is not too overwhelming, my course is so interesting and taught really well, I feel extremely safe, the peaks are just a short drive away and there’s always something fun going on! I would recommend this uni to everyone, however, you need to see it for your-self to make the right choice.
