Bradford College has ranked in the top three institutions in England offering Ophthalmic Dispensing (Dispensing Optician) higher education courses, according to the recently published National Student Survey (NSS).
By: Bradford College
Feedback from Ophthalmic Dispensing undergraduates placed Bradford College in the top three education institutions nationally for six out of the seven survey categories.
The College ranked first place nationally by these students for the theme of student voice (listening and acting on individual and collective student views). This result was an impressive 20.8% above the national benchmark.
The College's Ophthalmic Dispensing also came in second place nationally for the themes of learning opportunities (11.6% above benchmark) and academic support (13.9% above benchmark) and ranked third place for marking & assessment (11.2 % above benchmark), organisation & management (22.5% above benchmark), and learning resources (6.9% above benchmark).
In total, 423 universities, colleges, and higher education providers from England participated and 290,639 students responded.
Asa Gordon, Vice Principal for Curriculum at Bradford College, said:
"I'm delighted this latest NSS survey shows such positive results for our flexible higher education curriculum and specialist part-time programmes such as Ophthalmic Dispensing. The feedback will help shape the student experience at Bradford College for all our higher-level learners, and for part-time adult learners who balance various commitments.
"I'm also really pleased to see the significant uptake in survey responses from our higher education students - up over ten per cent from 2022 and this year's national average. Thanks go to our staff who continue to make a huge difference to the lives of local learners."
Bradford College has offered ophthalmic dispensing training for over 70 years and is one of the UK's most respected optical education providers. The College has an established partnership with Specsavers, and courses include part-time Level 6 Diplomas in Ophthalmic Dispensing, a full-time BSc (Hons) in Ophthalmic Dispensing, and a part-time ABDO Low Vision Honours qualification.
