Course content

A PhD by research at the School of Optometry and Vision Sciences is based around a specific, well-defined research topic.

In addition to the core research topic, the School provides a diverse programme of transferrable skills training, which complements the Doctoral Academy Programme.

Programme aims

To provide opportunities to acquire knowledge and expertise for post doctoral/lectureship/academic positions in vision science research, neuroscience, molecular biology, molecular genetics, cell biology and vision science as well as for research positions in industry, the Health Service, scientific informatics and science writing.
