Graduate Employment

The Eye Clinic - benefits of children's vision and reading.

98% of our 2014 graduates found employment within the first six months of graduating.*

Optometry is a vocational course, therefore the overwhelming majority of our graduates become registered with the General Optical Council (external link) to practise as optometrists, with a satisfying and rewarding professional career.

The work of an optometrist is principally concerned with the examination of the eyes and vision.

Optometrists give advice about, and assistance with, a wide range of visual difficulties, as well as prescribing spectacles and contact lenses.

At present, there is no shortage of employment opportunities for you as a graduate in Optometry.

* These statistics are derived from annually published data based on those UK domiciled graduates who are available for employment or further study and whose destinations are known.
