The eye provides a perfect model for studying a wide range of conditions and is an excellent test bed for developing therapies that can be used elsewhere in the body. Studying with us will allow you to discover new specialisms, themes and passions that can take you where you want to be, wherever you are in your education or career.

We have an exciting series of programmes ranging from short intensive revision sessions to doctoral training that capitalises on our expertise.
