A-level results day brought excitement for some of the next generation of science students looking for a career in optics.
A poll by Optician found optometry courses had been filled at each of the universities who responded during the frantic clearing window.
This included a new four-year integrated Masters in Optometry (MOptom) course at the University of Portsmouth, which accepted its first intake of students last September.
‘We filled all spaces and were not open to new applicants in clearing. We were given a limit of 16 by the General Optical Council,’ a spokesperson for the University of Portsmouth said.
