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.
