Lecture content is delivered by distance learning, using BlackBoard, our virtual learning environment. This platform allows you to access a comprehensive range of study materials, scientific journals, e-journals, databases and much more. Two practical training days take place at Aston Optometry School in May and July/ August.
Assessment is through coursework, a class test and OSCEs. Coursework consists of a reflective logbook of patient episodes and preparation of case records. The assessment day at Aston at the end of the module includes a theory-based class test and 4 OSCEs.
