About UPDA at University of Portsmouth

Overview

If you're interested in taking your existing expertise in Dental and Oral Health into a postgraduate research degree, Portsmouth is the perfect place to do it.

We're looking at how clinicians work with patients from different demographics to promote oral health and prevent disease, how outreach dental care can help combat inequality, and how we can remove the existing barriers to dental care and deliver high quality dentistry to all – and as a postgraduate research degree student with us, you'll make your own contribution to our pioneering work, and play your own part in turning our research into impact.

We're also addressing the growing demand for more complex dental treatment and maintenance among an ageing population, by helping to both develop new operative and learning tools for dentistry – such as the use of Virtual Reality (VR) in dental training – and by researching methods to improve the training of the dental care workforce pre- and post-qualification.

What can a postgraduate research degree do for my career?

Once you complete your postgraduate research degree, you'll be a highly-skilled researcher with the knowledge and skills to make an impact in many different industries.

Your postgraduate research qualification demonstrates to potential employers that you're an intelligent, capable and motivated person, with provable abilities and experience in critical thinking, problem-solving, project management, communication, leadership and creativity.
