Online Study At The LDi: University-Level Learning On Your Terms

Learning with the LDi is ideal for dental professionals who want to attain a postgraduate qualification without relocation or the prohibitive cost of university tuition fees. Study while you work and build your practical skills from your chosen course when you perform treatment on your own patients. Whether you dream of becoming an NHS specialist or offering private dentistry services, the VLE is a core part of your learning journey.

With the Virtual Learning Environment, students receive a university-level and internationally-recognised postgraduate qualification that fully encompasses every aspect of their dental specialism and empowers them to be confident in their chosen field of study.

From studying at their own pace, uploading patient cases for discussing and connecting with fellow dental professionals at the LDi, the Virtual Learning Environment offers an online platform that covers everything you’d get in an on-campus environment.

When you choose a course at the London Dental Institute, you’re entering a department building within a virtual university. Enter your department building at the LDi with the VLE when you enrol on a course — speak to one of our advisors to find out more.
