Faculty Postgraduate Prospectus
The HKU Faculty of Dentistry is the only dental school in Hong Kong, and is considered to be the premier centre for postgraduate dental education and training globally.
Students enjoy first-class teaching and learning facilities, predominantly in the form of a state-of-the-art specialist dental clinic which is being built from the ground up in a busy downtown area. The Institute for Advanced Dentistry-Multi-Specialty Clinic (IAD-MSC) is expected to be open for patient treatment by clinical Taught Postgraduate Students at year end. The IAD-MSC is a Centre of Excellence created to manage complex and severe oral conditions.
Apart from the IAD-MSC, the Faculty is equipped, amongst many other things, with a Simulation Laboratory for dental students’ self-practice, a fleet of modern research laboratories, comprehensive and advanced library holdings, a Postgraduate Habitat and a Lounge. All these are located in the Prince Philip Dental Hospital (PPDH), which is about 5 -10 mins walk away from the University’s Main Campus on Pokfulam Road.
There are also many other teaching facilities and amenities for students’ use on the Main Campus, including the impressive and popular Student Learning Commons.
Our professoriate and teaching staff are international both by origin and academic background, many of whom are highly recognized experts in their domain in the world. We also have highly-skilled dedicated manpower to assist learning. Dental surgery assistants, dental hygienists, dental technicians and laboratory technicians are but a few groups of staff employed by the Faculty of Dentistry to assist learning.
Our taught postgraduate programmes which have an esteemed reputation cover 10 subject areas and lead to the Master of Dental Surgery (MDS) Degrees and professional Advanced Diplomas which build on the MDS Degrees. Many of these programmes fulfil the specialist training requirements of dental specialties of the College of Dental Surgeons of Hong Kong of the Hong Kong Academy of Medicine.
There is a limited number of self-financing places in each specialty programme. Some government-funded places may be available for local candidates. Candidates who are interested in studying the MDS degree in a specific specialty are advised to apply for admissions to the relevant curriculum. Candidates who fulfil the eligibility criteria for the government-funded places and who have demonstrated academic merit may be offered a place within the government-funded quota of places.
Details of our postgraduate programmes are given on this website. We hope you find the information useful in assisting you to make the decision to further your education and career with us. Interested applicants should contact the Postgraduate Programme Director concerned.
