Postgraduate Qualifications via WOPEC (at Cardiff University)

The MSc in Clinical Optometry is a part-time, distance-learning (e-learning) course with practical tutorials/workshops to accompany many modules.

For information about the modules we offer, please visit our website.

There are four ways to learn with us:

  • A Postgraduate Certificate (PgCert) – 60 credits
  • A Postgraduate Diploma (PgDip) - 120 credits
  • A Master of Science (MSc) – 180 credits: to include a research project
  • Individual modules - 10, 20 or 30 credits each

The emphasis is on flexible learning for the individual and typical progress would be to complete twenty credits per academic term, so it would normally take 4 years to complete the MSc, including the research project.
