Optometry pathway launched providing alternative route to degree
23 September 2021
Optometry has been added to the growing portfolio of degree pathways available at Cardiff University offering an alternative pathway to achieving a degree in optometry.
The Pathway to Optometry is coordinated by Continuing and Professional Education (CPE) and is designed to be flexible with learning delivered on a part-time basis in the evenings and at weekends to suit work and family commitments. Students study in an encouraging environment, improve study skills and receive help with their university application.
This exciting announcement comes on the 10th anniversary of the launch of the University’s first pathway, which was a route to a degree in history, archaeology and religion. Over the past decade a further eleven subject areas have been added which provide a route to degree studies for those who may have been away from the classroom for a number of years.
Dr Sara Jones, who coordinates the pathways, commented: “We are thrilled to welcome The School of Optometry as partners providing two new pathways to further study at Cardiff University. Not everybody is ready to begin Higher Education at 18 but we ensure that students have a clear and accessible route when the time is right for them.”
