June 2024 mock OSCE courses open

Our face to face Mock OSCE course has been ranked as one of the best courses by students, purely one to one with bespoke feedback as well as tips/advice, mark sheets, an OSCE information booklet and an experience as close to the real thing with actors/ examiners and Volk mannequin! We started these back in 2016 and have adapted and evolved the course to make it a truly worthwhile and beneficial experience for all who attend

The highlight with our mock OSCE course is that during the assessment, you are asked a series of questions, more than what would normally occur in the real thing. This is based on feedback from students who found this to be very valuable and effective

This is on a circuit across multiple rooms, just like the real thing!


Morning or afternoon sessions are available and we promise that you will find the experience worthwhile and useful


Our examiners are from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences and include: College assessors, College examiners, a WOPEC lead assessor, a glaucoma specialist optometrist, a consultant ophthalmologist, a contact lens optician, hospital optometrists, IP optometrists, university clinical supervisors and AOP & college councillors.

Over 2,000 students have attended our mock OSCEs over the years, with excellent feedback.

We have over 50 cases that are used in our face to face and online courses with more created based on feedback and requests. These have been tried and tested and are proven to be effective in developing analytical thinking.

Resitting the OSCE? We will do our best to make sure you get it right this time round! Please contact us so we can discuss how we can help you do this with a free no obligation and confidential consultation

All those who attend our mock OSCE course will be invited to our OSCE support tutorial for FREE – discussing hint, tips and possible cases that may come up
