About

The Ophthalmology MSc from University College London (UCL) provides an in-depth engagement with the study of Ophthalmology in a contemporary clinical and research-focused context.

Overview

The Ophthalmology programme from University College London (UCL) is intended to provide a comprehensive grounding in the principles, approaches and methodologies that inform current practice in the specific clinical sub-specialities in this rapidly advancing area.

The programme is intended to provide students with a deeper theoretical and contextual knowledge to allow students to develop their clinical decision making skills in subspecialty areas and plan coherent next steps and further specialist study, research and training in readiness for patient-facing clinical practice and research.
