Clinical Optometry (MSc/PgDip/PgCert)

Course Description

The MSc in Clinical Optometry is a part-time, distance-learning (e-learning) course with practical tutorials/workshops to accompany many modules. There are four ways to learn with us. Students can enrol for:

* A Postgraduate Certificate (PgCert) – 60 credits
* A Postgraduate Diploma (PgDip) - 120 credits
* A Master of Science (MSc). – 180 credits; to include a research project
* Individual modules - 10, 20 or 30 credits each

The emphasis is on flexible learning for the individual and typical progress would be to complete twenty credits per academic term, so it would normally take 2-3 years to complete the MSc, including the research project.

The course will allow eye care professionals to enhance both their knowledge and clinical skills via a unique combination of distance learning and practical tuition. Students will have access to:

* Flexible, supported learning environment for the eye care professional>
* Modules relevant to today's clinical practice and professional development
* Excellent tuition from a dedicated team of tutors who are leaders in their field
* Material that has undergone academic peer-review to insure the latest evidence-based content
