OPSOC provides optometry students at the university with academic support and many chances to partake in a range of fun activities.
The Sports Secretaries currently run a league netball team and football team and recreational badminton. As well as this they organise the participation and travel of our annual course related sports tournament, OPFEST.
The Sport Secretaries along with the Vice President and Social Secretaries also organise an annual ski trip.
Through the Social Secretaries OPSOC offers a range of social activities to suit all its members. These begin with a range of fresher’s week activities to help new students integrate and culminate in our yearly ‘Eyeball’ to celebrate the successes of the academic year.
Aside from sports and recreational activities, OPSOC also provides extra clinic sessions to increase learning and proficiency in procedures.
There are many opportunities with OPSOC to take part in fundraising and voluntary work, through planned events from charity runs to all day fundraising days, packed with different activities, organised by the RAG reps.
The General Secretaries also organise Cheese and Wine events to provide information about and networking opportunities for post qualifying and employment for the students with their prospective employers and equipment manufacturers.
