Master of Science – (Program Code RS 41)

The School of Dental Sciences (SDS) offers the MSc (Dentistry) degree, which is a 1-3 year fulltime research based program in all fields of Dentistry. However, students can opt for a part time candidature for 2-6 years. Students will have to undertake a research project which will enable them to complete a MSc thesis, which will be the basis for the award of an MSc (Dentistry) degree. The research project can be in any area of dentistry and must be of a suitable quality expected for a Master’s student.  Each student will be appointed a Main Supervisor, who is an academic staff of SDS and if necessary, will be assisted by other academic staff who will be appointed Co-Supervisors. Students who conduct field based research or research overseas should be under a Field Supervisor, who will be appointed by USM.

Prospective students are advised to visit the SDS website ( to review the various research programs and fields offered, communicate with the relevant academic staff to draft the research project title with an outline of the research proposal and the proposed Main Supervisor. This will help the SDS Postgraduate Committee in the processing of the application.

Details on the application guidelines and procedures are written out in the USM ‘Handbook on Guidelines and Procedures for Graduate Studies through Research Mode’ which can be downloaded from the website of the USM Institute for Graduate Studies ( Details of fees structure and available financial support can also be obtained from the website.
