Course summary

Our BSc Optometry course will enable you to discover the scientific principles that underpin optometry, including the properties of light, the anatomy of the eye and the processing of vision in the brain.We have strong links with Manchester Royal Eye Hospital, where you can take advantage of a one-week clinical placement and attend regular specialist clinics in your final year.Students graduating with a BSc degree are usually able to register as an optometrist after a one year pre-registration placement. In order to progress to the pre-registration year you will need to achieve a 2:2, to demonstrate all of the GOC core competencies and maintain GOC student registration throughout your studies. You will need to secure your own pre-registration placement and ensure you have the appropriate visa (details can be found here ).Some students are able to enrol onto our unique four-year undergraduate Master of Science in Optometry course. Graduates of this course do not need to undertake a pre-registration year and can automatically register to practice as an optometrist with the General Optical Council on successful graduation.
