World Class Education
Real Education and Real Accreditation for the serious dentist
Australia’s first private dental school, The Postgraduate School of Dentistry was established in 2014 to provide state of the art, Australian Government accredited postgraduate qualifications for the practitioner of tomorrow.
Curricula are aimed at niche areas of dentistry, principally for general dentists around the world to gain further qualifications, whereby they remain in general practice yet offer specific treatments and services which are beyond the realm of their undergraduate dental degrees.
Students obtain a prestigious, government accredited Level 8 qualification (between a Degree and a Masters), and post-nominals which distinguishes yourself in your area of study.
Our programs are VET accredited, A VET accredited course has been assessed by ASQA (Australian Skills Quality Authority) as compliant with the Standards for VET Accredited Courses 2012 and the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF).
Accreditation is formal confirmation that the course:
- is nationally recognised by the Australian Government Authority
- meets an established industry, enterprise, educational, legislative or community need
- provides appropriate competency outcomes and a satisfactory basis for assessment
- meets national quality assurance requirements
- is aligned appropriately to the AQF where it leads to a qualification.
Each VET accredited course is allocated a national code and is listed on the national register, training.gov.au.
