Graduate students will be required to familiarise themselves with the clinical and technical techniques applicable to fixed & removable prosthodontic rehabilitation of adult patients: prescribed exercises will be assessed. The purpose of the pre-clinical course is to allow each student to revise existing techniques and develop these whilst also learning new ones. Satisfactory performance in this unit assessment is a requirement for progressing to clinical treatment on postgraduate clinics.
The aim of the clinical units is to give the student an understanding of the scientific basis of fixed & removable prosthodontics, with particular emphasis on current theories relevant to the diagnosis, treatment planning and clinical management of adult patients.

The principles of feedback are as follows:
- Feedback should be provided in a timely manner that helps students understand (i) the marks or grades they have received for work submitted and (ii) how they might improve their performance in the future.
- Feedback should be as personal as possible to the individual student to enable reflection on individual skills and performance.
- Students have a responsibility to consider feedback given on their work, to seek to understand it, and to act on it.
