MSci Optometry / Application and selection
Year of entry: 2019
How to apply
Advice to applicants
You should not apply for both the BSc Optometry and the MSci Optometry course, as applications for these courses are considered together. Students cover the same course units for the first two years of both these courses and only exceptional students are invited to continue on the second two years of the MSci.
We would normally only consider applicants who obtained the relevant qualification within the three years prior to entry.
Applicants should contact the Admissions Office to discuss their particular circumstances.
Please note that if you are offered a place on this course, you will be required to register with the General Optical Council and, as a result, will be subject to their standards and disciplinary proceedings in addition to those of the University.
How your application is considered
Both international and EU applicants are considered on the basis of their UCAS form. Shortlisted candidates will be interviewed via Skype.
Interviews are part of the selection process. All suitable UK applicants will be interviewed in person at the University.
Fitness to practise / health requirements
All applicants will be required to complete a Pre-acceptance Health Questionnaire. Please see the Optometry Applicants - Fitness to Practise Guidelines (PDF) for more information.
Disclosure and Barring Service check
All applicants will be required to complete an enhanced Disclosure & Barring Services (DBS) check.
Policy for applicants who resit their qualifications
We will consider resit applications provided you have obtained a minimum of A-level grades BBC at the first attempt (or equivalent qualifications).
