Courses

We are one of only a few places who help and support you through youre pre-reg year from the start (Stage 1, Visit 1) all the way up to mock OSCEs.

We discuss real life case scenarios with you, focus on subjects that a lot of pre-registration students fail on. Give you tips and advice on the different stages of assessment, and most importantly give you confidence!
We guarantee you will learn something that you didn’t know before!

We offer a group tutorial on popular topics which are known to be areas where pre-reg students tend to struggle. You will also be given a chance to talk to recently qualified optometrists who have been through Stage 1, Stage 2 assessments and the OSCES’s, giving you tips and advice.
This will be useful, as experiences and learning strategies will be shared between pre-reg’s as well as providing an effective way to meet other colleagues who are in the same position.

Subjects areas that we will be covering that pre-registration students tend to struggle with:
