Description

Lead by Professor Harminder Dua, Academic Ophthalmology has established itself as an internationally recognised centre of excellence in the management of complex ocular surface disorders. Nationally it is without doubt one of the leading centres in this area, attracting patient referrals from consultant ophthalmologist colleagues across the country and internationally. The unit boasts an excellent track record in the areas of corneal transplantation, ocular surface reconstruction including amniotic membrane and stem cell transplantation. Our applied laboratory research has already directed clinical practice in the eye banks, amniotic membrane preparation, storage and use, and more through development of clinical techniques namely, fine needle diathermy occlusion of corneal vessels, a new classification of chemical burns, sequential sector conjunctival epitheliectomy and alcohol delamination of the corneal epithelium for diagnostic and therapeutic indications. These have been adopted by several centres across the world. Recently, we have discovered a new layer in the pre-Descemets zone of the deep stroma (Dua’s layer) that will have profound effect on lamellar corneal surgery and posterior corneal pathology. We offer students world-class laboratory facilities that incorporate the latest technologies, and a dedicated training programme to help them make the most of their skills.

International students

The International Office is the main place for international students to visit when they arrive at the university. It is staffed by a dedicated team of advisors that are there to help with the many issues that can arise from living and studying in a different country. They can help with matters such as immigration and visas, financial advice and family concerns. They are also on hand for matters such as employment and academic difficulties. They organise regular events and even trips to allow students from outside the UK to make the most of their time in the country and to see all that the UK has to offer. There is even help and advice for after studies have finished and students are looking for work. The Students Union are responsible for the organisation of some 190 student clubs and societies along with some 75 sports clubs. There is a student run newspaper as well as a professional sound and lighting company for events in the area. It holds a regular RAG organisation, the largest outside the US, which raises over £1 million each year for good causes. There is a Student Volunteer Centre and an international volunteering project as well as working in the larger community.
