Programme Specifications

- Our undergraduate dentistry course will give a degree from a world-recognized institution” Mansoura University”, along with the skills and knowledge need for a career in Dentistry. It is a collaborated joined programme between Faculty of Dentistry Mansoura University and The Manchester University School of Dentistry.
 
The Manchester University School of Dentistry will be joining the whole dental learning programme. Our dentistry students will use an array of facilities to learn both the practical skills and theoretical knowledge that they need to successfully work as dentists.
Students undertake practical learning with real patients at Mansoura University Dental Hospital which is located close to our other learning facilities at the heart of the campus, as well as in outreach clinics. As well as lectures, dental students undertake classes in life science laboratories, the anatomy dissection room and our clinical and technical skills facilities, which include patient simulators and a range of dental equipment.
 
Manchester undergraduate programme is one of the largest and most successful providers of dental education in the UK, with world-leading researchers in basic dental sciences and health services research. The programme is designed for Enquiry based learning not teaching. The aim is to allow students to discover and learn for themselves not to subject them to formal tuition under a different name. That is not to say that tutors are redundant as their contribution is as important as ever, but it changes from being “teacher” to being active “facilitator of learning”.
 
What is Enquiry-Based Learning (EBL)?
It is a very special feature of The Manchester Dental Programme (TMDP); an educational approach that is particularly designed for active self-directed learners, which dentists must be throughout their professional lives. The programme is characterized by its unique Enquiry Based Learning method of teaching in small groups of students (10-12) students with a tutor of faculty member to guide students to discover the learning agenda and intended learning outcomes and search for them access to the scientific material in an attractive and interesting manners and then discuss the results together.
