Eastman Dental Institute



At the beginning of the pandemic UCL suspended all research activities which are not related to Covid-19. We are currently planning a phased return to normal activity over the next few months. Meanwhile our current PhD students continue to be supported by staff and can find up-to-date information via the UCL Doctoral School

Prospective students may be assured that preparations for the new academic year are currently still in place. However, as with taught programmes, we will need to respond appropriately if Governmental advice changes.
