Programme Directors

The Programme Directors are responsible for all aspects of your dentistry programme.

Your Programme Director is responsible for the smooth running of your dentistry programme, supporting your academic development and facilitating your orientation and smooth progression through the degree, from initial induction to the transition into the dissertation stage and to the successful completion of the degree.  When you progress to the dissertation stage, a new supervisor suitable for your chosen dissertation topic may be allocated.   

Your Programme Director is your first line of pastoral support and is usually designated as the supervisor for all students on the programme.  If you have any concerns contact your Programme Director immediately to discuss the problem.
