Public Health with Professional Registration as a Specialist Community Public Health Nurse (Health Visiting) Postgraduate Diploma
The Graduate Diploma by Research in Optometry offers graduates with at least a three-year Optometry degree training and experience in scientific research, and specialised training in aspects of Optometry. The program comprises 48 UOC, 24 of which are gained by completion of a research project, and 24 by coursework. The research project is taken across two sessions, as two 12 - unit core courses. The coursework consists of 6 units as a core course, and 18 units as elective courses. The core course is to be taken in the first session of enrolment. It is to be expected that the Diploma may allow entry to a higher research degree program, for those students without an Honours degree. Candidates anticipating progression to a higher research degree should consult with their supervisor, to ensure an appropriate choice of courses for their chosen field of study. The range of courses available is identical to those offered in the MOptom program. The program may be completed on a full-time (two sessions duration) or part-time (four sessions duration) basis. Candidates must be based on campus.
