Our online modular Diploma programme can be used flexibly by staff working in eye departments and clinics. The complete Diploma in Ophthalmic and Vision Science will train someone new to healthcare practice to become an Associate Ophthalmic Practitioner. The first level of the course covers generic knowledge and skills, whilst the second level is specific to ophthalmic practice. You can find more information by reading this student guide.


Many ophthalmic staff already have a healthcare qualification that includes generic knowledge and skills, but they may want training in areas where they have extended their practice. Different combinations of our ophthalmic-specific modules can be used for continuing professional development to meet this need.
