Newgiza University (NGU) was established as a private university by a presidential Decree “93” in April 2010. NGU schools were acknowledged by the Ministry of Higher Education (MHE) and the Supreme Council of Universities (SCU).

The university will eventually include twelve schools: Medicine; Pharmacy; Dentistry; Nursing and Health Science; Economics and Politics; Law; Business and Finance; Engineering; Information Technology; Fine Arts; Archaeology; and Languages and Interpretation. Currently, eight schools are functioning (Medicine, Dentistry, Pharmacy, Business and Finance, Economics and Politics, Engineering, Information Technology, and Fine Arts).

The School of Dentistry was acknowledged by decree “3357” in August 2016. Every school will apply for accreditation by the National Authority for Quality Assurance and Accreditation in Education (NAQAAE) after the graduation of the first batch.

University College London (UCL):

The School of Dentistry at NGU has an academic collaboration with University College London (UCL), enhancing its academic capabilities, as well as offering world-renowned undergraduate program, providing both the school and students with ample opportunities for development on an academic and personal level.

This collaboration ensured that the highest international standards in teaching and research are met at NGU, with highly qualified faculty members providing instruction and supervision. As part of this collaboration, senior faculty, and staff from UCL worked with their NGU colleagues in strategic planning and organization of the new programs, setting up appropriate infrastructure and education governance structures, developing curricula and learning resources, faculty and senior staff recruitment, faculty development, course evaluation and education quality assurance. Where appropriate, NGU utilizes existing UCL teaching and assessment resources to deliver its programs.

Having currently ranked 9th on the QS World University Rankings 2024, and consistently placing in the top 20 of various global university rankings, UCL is widely recognized for its research capabilities and contributions to sciences and innovations. It was rated 2nd in the UK for research power in the Research Excellence Framework 2021. Moreover, UCL boasts 30 Nobel Prize winners, and was recently selected as University of the Year 2024 (The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2024).

The UCL Eastman Dental Institute is one of the most highly rated dental institutions in the UK. It is currently rated 17th in the world in the QS World University Rankings by Subject (2023).

The BDS at NGU is a five-year-integrated-program of study consisting of 3 modules spread across each academic year, each semester is 18 weeks. Despite adopting an integrated approach, the modules in the first and second years contain the majority of basic medical and clinical sciences with early clinical exposure. Modules in the third, fourth, and fifth years are more predominantly focused on dental practice, yet, professional, general, and clinical skills are delivered in all years. The teaching of clinical care on patients takes place in modern dental clinics on campus under the supervision of the School of Dentistry staff and teaching assistants.

Overarching principles of BDS:

  • Integration: supports the understanding and application of learning.
  • Competency focused: ensures graduates are able to practice safely and learn during the PRHO year.
  • Research informed and research focused: ensures graduates have the skills and orientation to be evidence-based practitioners.
  • Authentic assessment that promotes learning: uses assessment in a way that promotes learning, encourages self-assessment and life-long learning, and utilizes authentic and reliable assessment tools.
  • Patient-centered: aims at understanding the patient as central to all clinical practices, while focusing on applying what is learned on those practices.
  • Professional development: learning how to be safe, efficient, reflective and compassionate dentists.

The BDS’s duration is five academic years, 10 semesters, including an Introductory Module, shared with other health education programs at NGU (Medicine and Pharmacy).

The program contains at-school 300 credit units over 10 semesters, which do not only represent contact hours, but also the total student workload required to achieve the learning outcomes, including direct contact hours in classrooms, small groups and practical classes, workplace-based learning in clinical placements, project work, self-paced learning delivered via any Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), and self-directed learning. A credit unit is estimated to represent approximately 25-30 hours of study.

The program is modular rather than discipline-based. However, the contents are consistent with the NARS recommendations concerning the weighting of various aspects of the curriculum, as follows:

  • Basic Sciences (Physics, Chemistry, Bioscience, Human Anatomy, Growth and Genetics, Physiology, Biochemistry, Microbiology and Immunology, General Histology, Pharmacology, General Pathology, Oral Biology, Dental Anatomy and Oral Physiology, Dental Biomaterials and Oral Pathology).
  • Medical and Dental Sciences (Internal Medicine, General Surgery, Restorative Dentistry, Prosthodontics, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and General Anesthesia, Diagnostic Sciences, Oral Medicine, Oral Maxillofacial Radiology, Periodontics, Endodontic, Orthodontics and Dentofacial, Orthopedics, Pediatric Dentistry, Public Health, and Community Dentistry).
  • Behavioral Sciences (Law, Ethics and Professionalism, Information Technology).

Successful completion of the undergraduate program results in the award of Bachelor of Dental Surgery (BDS). This university program is followed by a one-year, pre-registration Internship delivered and supervised in an approved setting. Successful completion of the university program and the internship year results in the award of a license to practice dentistry.

Your Learning:
You will be taught through lectures, tutorials and small-group work, and laboratory classes. Later years will include workplace-based learning in clinical placements.
You will be assessed by methods including single best answer questions, data interpretation, and objective structured practical examinations supplemented with portfolios.
The following table summarizes the overall structure of the program, the duration, credit value and modes of the study of the component modules:

Each student’s portfolio is an integral part of the BDS program designed for NGU School of Dentistry. It represents a documented record to monitor all the academic, practical, clinical and self-taught activities at school. It is a yearly requirement to ensure that students are engaged with their studies, course work, logbooks and continuous assessment rubrics in all domains. Each year of the program has four defined points to evaluate the portfolio. A satisfactory submitted portfolio is a regulatory requirement to enter qualifying summative examinations to progress to the next year of the BDS program.

Based on dual cooperation between an academic advisor and a personal tutor for each group of students (from 22-24), this system facilitates students’ support backed up by the module coordinators, and year and program leads. Thus, a continuous follow-up for each student is achieved by offering academic advice.
