Hi,

Thanks in advance x

Yeah, I don't mean specific to optometry. Do you know any general science/healthcare foundation years which could lead to an optometry degree? Thank you

I know Manchester, Aston and Bradford offer science foundation years which lead to optometry but I just wanted to make sure it was right.

As long as they mention directly that profession onto optometry is an option you should be fine.

Hi,
I am an optometry student at Plymouth. There's a few people on my course who have done foundation year biology with Plymouth University and then have progressed/transferred onto Optometry first year. Might be worth emailing the optometry department at Plymouth to find out more.

Sorry for the late reply. Manchester did offer a foundation year in previous years called 'Life Sciences with a foundation year' which offered progression onto Optometry. However, that course has now been changed to 'Biosciences with a foundation year' and as far as I know no longer allows one to progress onto Optometry.
