Course overview

This degree shares many common elements with Ophthalmic Dispensing, but what sets this course apart is the option modules that allow you to address the management dimension of optometric practice.

Dispensing opticians are primary health care providers and so you will be required to manage patients' care in a safe, ethical and confidential manner. The opportunity to gain first-hand practical experience working with patients will give you valuable insight into the requirements of professional practice.

The scope of this course calls for a variety of teaching methods, including formal lectures and tutorials, practical sessions and workshops and patient experiences.
