Our Orthoptics course is designed to ensure graduates are work-ready and equipped for success in the profession. Here are six reasons to study Orthoptics at UTS:
1. Active research environment
All UTS Orthoptics lecturers are passionate about the profession and active in research. This means you’ll be learning the most up-to-date techniques and using the most current tools, all under the guidance of highly-qualified and enthusiastic staff.
2. Strong links with local clinics and hospitals
All clinical placements are organised on your behalf by the School, but if there is something you’re particularly interested in, there is the flexibility to source your own.
3. World class study environment
Our state-of-the-art facilities use technology and design to create optimal learning and study environments. What’s more, our allied healthcare school is located right in the heart of one of the most liveable cities on Earth.
4. Rigorous, practice-based learning
The UTS Master of Orthoptics is one of only two Orthoptics degrees in the Asia-Pacific region. We prepare students for success through an innovative and practice-based approach to learning that includes in-class simulation, external clinical placements, interdisciplinary workshops and authentic assessments.
5. Graduate eligible for professional registration
Our course is fully accredited by Orthoptics Australia and you will graduate work-ready and eligible for registration as an orthoptist.
6. Small cohort
The small Orthoptics cohort at UTS fosters a great sense of community between staff and students. You will not feel lost in the crowd.
