We typically take 50-60 students each year, which allows staff and students to work in a collaborative and supportive way in accordance with the principles of whakawhanaungatanga.

By graduating with a BOptom you will be well-prepared with the knowledge, experience and skills required to enter practice or to continue with graduate or other studies.
