16 March 2020: As a result of the Coronavirus pandemic and government advice, all attendance in the University and the School of Optometry for teaching purposes is suspended with immediate effect. This includes any external events we are running as part of WOPEC elsewhere.

Therefore the events we were due to deliver will not occur. I do apologise for the cancellation, but we need to ensure safety and everyone’s health as a priority. We plan to reschedule the event on a suitable date as soon as it is possible to do so.

WOPEC is the first Postgraduate Education Centre for Optometry in the World, dedicated to excellence in eye care education through quality and independence.
