Hi - sorry you haven't had a response to this yet. I'm just going to bump the thread in the hope that someone sees this and can help

Why do I do this?

The Universities forums get a lot of questions that are unanswered. This is often because the OP's thread got missed - bumping threads gives them another lease of life and frequently results in someone seeing it and being able to respond

If you would like to help with unanswered questions check out the first part of the list here and don't forget the second part of the list here.

Or if you have questions, get in touch with Puddles the Monkey.

Hey, I got in through clearing. I only found out Huddersfield did optometry when I checked on ucas clearing list. How do you find Huddersfield uni? I've never been there before

The year is based on 50% coursework and 50% examinations. I would say it was a challenge with time management as you always have work to do but the nature of the work is similar to A-level. There were many people on my course that did BTECs so you should be fine. You would need 65%-70% overall to transfer to Optometry. If you don’t manage a high percentage, you are always guaranteed entry to their other applied science courses when passing the year

Do they accept people who have done just applied science at level 3 for a foundation year?

You have to apply for the foundation year separately on UCAS.
