Gagandeep Matharu – BSc (Hons) Optometry

"A huge advantage of studying optometry at Plymouth was the chance to attend placements in different optometric settings, including Derriford Hospital. There were also opportunities available for gaining plenty of practical experience within the newly established eye clinic.”
