Orthoptics

This is a three year, full-time course. The first year gives you the scientific background you need to understand the normal eye, together with an introduction to optics and binocular vision. The second and third years develop this understanding and explore ocular abnormalities and disease. You'll also study topics related to the profession, such as medical ethics, interpersonal skills and the organisation and structure of the NHS. 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. The degree is recognised worldwide.
