Admission Process        Delivery Mode       Teaching Philosophy


At Orapuh School, short courses are oral (dental) and public health courses of 1 – 2 weeks duration. We deliver course components with zest – as if we are taking students through a degree programme!

Orapuh School’s short courses are ideal for persons who intend to embellish their knowledge or practice with a particular subject area without going through the hazle of what it takes to complete a certificate programme – summative assessments, numerous courses, heavy time investment, etc.

Structure of the programme

Each short course is structured into lectures, interactive, and activity components. Weekly academic webinars supplement learning.

Teaching resources

The courses are offered entirely online. Students have access to the PDF versions of lecture slides, audio and video recordings of lectures, academic webinar audios, video lessons, memory aids, and links to other important learning materials.

Academic Webinars

We run regular Academic Webinars at the School to deepen students’ knowledge about their programme of study and the latest trends in the field. It is essential that students attend these webinars.

Even after graduation, students are encouraged to subscribe to the AWPS to be able to continue to attend the academic webinars (indefinitely) to stay abreast of sizzling issues and developments in their field of study and practice. This will enhance their knowledge, experience, and practice in ways that they cannot begin to imagine now.

Our desire is for our students to succeed in life and we are ready to support them through the process both while in School and after graduation. This means that our association is a continuous one and we cherish it.
