Untitled Page Full description

Dispensing opticians help patients to find the best eyecare solution for them. You’ll learn to work alongside optometrists, combining your clinical expertise with the skills needed to manage a successful practice.

Our extended course is ideal if you don’t have all the qualifications required for our BSc (Hons) course. The entry requirements are more flexible, giving you the chance to improve your knowledge in science and maths during Year 1. As you progress your learning will become more practically based and you'll gain hands-on experience. We'll encourage you to find work experience in your second year which can then be carried over into your third year where your work experience, if appropriately supervised, can be used as part of your pre-qualification portfolio for the Association of British Dispensing Opticians (ABDO). On successful completion of your studies, you will gain exemption from the ABDO theoretical examinations.

Small teaching groups mean you’ll get plenty of one-to-one time with tutors. A lot of your learning will be hands-on, using industry-standard equipment in our dispensing laboratory and our campus eye clinic.
