In the third year, you'll carry out your own research project on a topic of your choice. The course includes 33 weeks on placement. You'll work in orthoptic departments across the UK, Ireland and Gibraltar. This gives you the comprehensive clinical experience to build on communication skills and develop the practical skills needed to start your career. The final year includes a two-week clinical placement in an orthoptic clinic of your choice.Graduates go on to work in these kinds of environments, alongside other professionals such as ophthalmologists, paediatricians and neurologists.
