About the College of Medicine and Dentistry
College of Medicine and Dentistry
Established in 2018, we are one of the few private education providers offering a wide range of training programmes for the dental team and all healthcare professionals. Working across a blended learning concept, we aim to reach out to all aspiring individuals to improve their knowledge and skills. Our collaboration with Ulster University enables us to offer a wide range of career progression opportunities.
Having grown to a multi-national alumni and student body of over 400 graduates, the CoMD traces its beginnings within the BPP University School of Health, which in 2013 became the first private university in the UK to deliver postgraduate clinical dentistry programmes, starting with a class of 25 students.
The CoMD has since been established as an independent college in 2018, working with the University of Ulster (Northern Ireland) and is continuing its drive and vision to become a leading independent research and innovation institution committed to excellence in healthcare education and training.
With a 7,600 sqft campus in central Birmingham comprising of a state-of-the-art simulation centre and clinical facilities, alongside an outreach centre, the CoMD is focussed on its mission to deliver progressive healthcare patient care and education, alongside its collaborative research and teaching facilities.

Welcome from the Dean
It is my great pleasure to introduce you to the College of Medicine & Dentistry, formerly BPP University Dental Institute which we established in 2013, and is now the UK’s first private college delivering clinical postgraduate dental education.
With a state-of-the-art campus and clinic located in the UK’s second-largest city, Birmingham, we have established ourselves over the years as a premier dental education provider, having welcomed over 200 UK and international postgraduate and diploma students.
Our multinational and renowned faculty are focused on offering specialised programmes based on the latest research, including various digital dentistry techniques. As a result, we have become a recognised front-runner in offering quality and flexible education in the clinical areas of postgraduate dentistry, thanks to our pioneering faculty and contemporary approach.
As Dean, one of my roles is to challenge, encourage, and support our faculty and students in their pursuit of innovation across our specialist fields. New initiatives are always on the horizon as we look to broaden our educational opportunities, expand on research initiatives, and make a larger impact through our outreach efforts.
With outstanding resources, teaching in both clinical and simulated settings, we prepare graduates to be highly competent and skilled professionals. Our graduates progress to not only becoming excellent clinicians, but also leaders in their profession; equipped with focused clinical skills and multidisciplinary knowledge.
I welcome you to join us as we embark on a new era of dentistry education, developing innovative and ground-breaking strategies for the improvement and delivery of oral healthcare.
