Online courses are particularly suitable for working dentists who need flexibility in their learning pattern or those who are geographically distant from course providers. They are designed to engage participants in a learning experience that is inclusive and stimulating without the need to constantly be ‘on-site’.
UCL Eastman now offers an increasing number of online short courses. These are run through UCL's online course platform, Extend, and include lectures and interactive activities. Our world-class education is now available to you, wherever you are, and can be accessed at your own pace.
We are also now offering distance-learning, degree programmes which are delivered mostly online with just two or three weeks per year held at the Institute.
