optometrist testimonial

“The staff of Aston’s optometry department are so supportive and really want to see their students succeed. I found it useful to have different clinical supervisors in third year because each clinician does things a bit differently, so you can then use your favourite bits from each person’s routine to create your own.”

How did the quality of teaching and student support enhance your time at Aston? 

The staff of Aston’s optometry department are so supportive and really want to see their students succeed. I found it useful to have different clinical supervisors in third year because each clinician does things a bit differently, so you can then use your favourite bits from each person’s routine to create your own.

What was the highlight of your time at Aston?

My highlight of my time at Aston was when we started seeing real patients in clinics. It was a great feeling to finally put all of my knowledge to use.

Were you involved in any student societies or extra-curricular activities?

My most memorable extra-curricular activity was when I volunteered for Vision Care for Homeless People (VCHP). The charity runs a clinic once a week and provides eye care and glasses to homeless people. It’s such a fantastic opportunity for optometry students to see another side of the profession while practicing techniques in a different environment. And, the clinic is located at SIFA Fireside which is walking distance from campus. I definitely recommend that optometry students attend these clinics when possible, as I learned so much from them while also giving something back to the community.

How did you find the Aston campus experience?

I loved the campus at Aston. It’s much smaller than my previous university campus in Canada, and it was very easy to get from one building to another. Optometry students have all of their classes and clinics in the Vision Sciences building, which is very close to the library for those students who like to study on-campus.

What was the best thing about being a student in Birmingham?

Birmingham has amazing transport links so it’s very easy to travel within the UK and even abroad.

What advice would you give to someone thinking of studying at Aston?

If possible, visit the universities that you are considering to get a feel for them, and choose your university based on where you can see yourself attending.

What would be your top recommendation to new students on what to do or see in Birmingham?

Brindley Place has great restaurants right along the canals, so I’d highly recommend going there. And this may sound weird, but Birmingham’s public library is a must-see! It’s a beautiful building and you can go to the top floor balcony and have gorgeous views of the city.

If you could go back in time and give yourself one piece of advice as a first year student, what would it be?

Learn the basics really well, because everything builds on top of them, especially in optometry.

Course outline and modules

Optometrists are professional clinicians responsible for multiple aspects of vision care, specialising in preserving sight by diagnosing and treating visual problems. They’re trained to examine the eyes and detect disorders originating in the eye, brain or other parts of the body.

Studying Optometry at Aston will give you the practical clinical skills, theoretical knowledge and contact with real patients needed to prepare you for a rewarding career in this exciting field of healthcare.

You’ll experience a wide range of learning methods and opportunities like:

  • Supervised hands-on clinical experience working with patients at the Aston Eye Clinic, based on our vibrant city centre campus.
  • Virtual patient simulators designed to help you develop your skills and expertise.
  • Observing treatment of patients in multiple settings such as specialist clinics, local eye hospital departments and the Aston University Day Hospital.
  • The opportunity to complete a masters level qualification while working as a re-registration optometrist with our optional MOptom year.

 

Expand your knowledge with our integrated MOptom year

In addition to the BSc (Hons) Optometry degree, you have the opportunity to continue your studies with our MOptom (Hons) Optometry course. 

Completing the MOptom enables you to achieve a masters degree as you qualify as a registered optometrist. Whilst undergoing the pre-registration period, your depth of knowledge will be enhanced by the distance learning modules that we offer, and your skills will continue to grow.

What accreditations does the Optometry course at Aston have?

This course is regulated by the General Optical Council (GOC) and is the first step towards becoming a qualified optometrist.

The GOC states that in order to become a fully-qualified Optometrist, you must complete the College of Optometrists Scheme for Registration during the re-registration period. In order to enter the scheme, you must achieve at least a 2:2 (if you are on the BSc Optometry course), or at least an overall average of 50% by the end of Year 3 and completed all clinical competencies (if you are on the MOptom course).

The pre-registration period involves working in-practice, being supported by supervisors, and taking a number of assessments. You will be responsible for finding your own pre-egistration post, however, the Aston Careers and Placements team and optometry careers tutor will be on hand to support you.

International students and post-study work visa

Aston University is a diverse, close community and welcomes international students on many of our undergraduate programmes. Students from over 120 different countries chose to study with us every year and Aston is not only a great place to study, based in the centre of Birmingham it’s also a great place to live.

Over recent years there has been increasing interest in our Optometry programme from Canadian applicants. Some of our Canadian graduates now live and work in the UK, whilst some have returned to practice in Canada. Discover more.

For those students interested in studying the MOptom, the 4th year of this full time course is an integrated work based learning year, allowing students to work and study at the same time. This means that international students on the MOptom programme will not require a separate work visa during their pre-registration period, discover more about visas for the Pre-Registration period. During this year, you will complete an Ocular Therapeutics module, Aston Optometry graduates who have returned to countries where optometrists have prescribing rights have found this invaluable.

The new post-study work visa enables international students to remain in the UK for two years after they have completed their studies to find work.  For more information visit the government website.

    Frequently asked questions

    Why study Optometry at Aston University?

    Studying at Aston combines hands-on experience in a real optometry clinic, with theoretical learning on an accredited course; giving you the right skills and knowledge to succeed in a future eye care career; or the opportunity to do further study at masters level on the MOptom course.

    What accreditations does the Optometry course at Aston have?

    This course is regulated by the General Optical Council (GOC) and is the first step towards becoming a qualified clinician. 

    The GOC states that in order to become a fully-qualified optometrist, you must complete the College of Optometrists Scheme for Registration during the pre-registration period. In order to enter the scheme, you must achieve at least a 2:2 (if you are on the BSc Optometry course), or at least an overall average of 50% by the end of year 3 and complete all stage 1 clinical competencies (if you are on the MOptom course).

    The pre-registration period involves working in-practice, being supported by supervisors, and taking a number of assessments. You will be responsible for finding your own Pre-Registration post; however, the Careers and Placements team and the optometry careers tutor will be on hand to support you. In addition, as one of the UK's leading optometry courses, we are regularly targeted by the major high street optometry chains and other companies that offer pre-registration posts.

    What is the MOptom year?

    In addition to the BSc (Hons) Optometry degree, you have the opportunity to continue your studies with our MOptom (Hons) Optometry course. 

    You will remain enrolled at Aston on a full-time basis, while you undertake six masters level modules, four of which will be ‘taught’ modules and two are coursework modules. Course material is delivered online and tutors can be accessed via email, phone or in person. You will also attend four days of on-campus tutorials, workshops and exams. 

    Completing the MOptom enables you to achieve a master’s degree as you qualify as a registered optometrist. Whilst undergoing the pre-registration period, your depth of knowledge will be enhanced by the distance modules that we offer, and your skills will continue to be refined and grow during this final year. 

    Will I get experience working with real patients?

    Yes! This is an essential part of the course, and really important in giving you both the clinical and people skills to have a successful career in eye care.

    For example, you’ll work in our public Optometry clinic on site in our campus in Birmingham, where you’ll help to provide patients with a full range of eye care services under close supervision of our clinical staff, including ophthalmologists, optometrists, orthoptists and dispensing opticians.

    Why should international students choose Aston University?

    Study at Aston University and you will be part of a multi-cultural community located at the heart of the dynamic city of Birmingham. Our courses are practical, inspired by industry and many have internationally recognised accreditations. Renowned for our employability prospects and connections to business and industry, we provide outstanding careers support, advice and placement opportunities.
