Pathway to a degree in Optometry
Our part-time Pathway to a degree in Optometry has been designed for adults who want to return to education in order to apply to study for a degree.
Modules are taught in the evenings and at weekends. You will study in a relaxed and supportive environment. After studying the pathway you will be able to make an application to study Optometry with a Preliminary Year (MOptom) (B514).
How it works
The pathway is made up of 60 credits. This includes two compulsory core modules, made up of 20 credits each, and additional optional modules that will equal 20 credits.
Applicants will need 7 GCSEs, grades A-C/9-4. These should include double science, or physics and another science, mathematics and English or Welsh (if you went to a Welsh-medium school).
- Public Policy for Health (20 credits)
- Introduction to Human Biology (20 credits)
- Medical Imaging and the Human Body (10 credits)
- Diseases and Disorders of the Brain (10 credits)
- Research Methods (10 credits)
Under normal circumstances, you can expect to complete the pathway within one year, but you can take longer if needed.
