      The experience

      Overview

      Courses from the Department of Optometry & Vision Sciences offer optometrists the opportunity to keep abreast of new developments in significant areas of optometry by studying subjects from a range of our diverse postgraduate courses. All courses are specifically designed for off-campus study in a supportive and collaborative environment, and practitioners have the opportunity to complete and apply required tasks in their own practice.
