Current Students

This area of the site is aimed at our current students. 

Student Support

We have a well developed range of support services to offer you the help and advice you need to make the most of your time at University. Every student has a Personal Tutor to offer them support, and the School also runs a 'Buddy' scheme to help integrate first year students into life at the University.

Learning Central

‘Learning Central’ is the Virtual Learning Environment programme that the School uses to integrate all of its teaching, learning and assessment activities.

Academic Calendar

Enrolment and semester dates for the current academic year.

Student Prizes

The School is also fortunate in having a number of prizes sponsored by optical companies and associations that it awards at the end of each year. This enables the School to reward those students whose performance has been outstanding. You are encouraged to use these prizes as inspiration for your studies!

Equipment you need

This page lists the equipment and instruments you will need as a student in your first, second and third years at the School.

Student Optometry Society

Every University is packed to the brim with societies of one kind or another...something to suit everyone's taste buds! At Cardiff School of Optometry and Vision Sciences, we pride ourselves on having something just a little bit different...
