What is orthoptics?

The following flexible part-time degrees are designed for healthcare professionals who want to develop their knowledge and professional expertise. You'll be taught by subject experts and learn about the latest techniques and approaches in your field. 


Why study with us?

We work closely with the Royal College of Nursing, exploring how education meets the needs of the NHS workforce. This means that we’re ideally placed to offer you high-quality courses, informed by the latest research in the field.

We are one of only two universities in England to train professionals in the specialist area of orthoptics, making Sheffield a true centre of excellence. A high proportion of professional orthoptists working in the NHS today were trained here in Sheffield.

For Speech and Language Therapy students, our on-site communication clinic gives you the opportunity to gain valuable practical experience during your degree.

You'll benefit from a fantastic range of facilities, including our Clinical Skills Centre - a perfect facility for training the health professionals of tomorrow.
