Congratulations to all our Graduates!
At our 2018 Graduation dinner, the School of Optometry and Vision Science recognised the diligence, hard work and achievements of 2017's graduating cohort. The following day, that same cohort attended their graduation ceremony. Each student should feel proud to have completed the Bachelor of Vision Science with the Master of Clinical Optometry. Associate Professor Isabelle Jalbert and Professor Deborah Sweeney spoke wonderfully about where a qualification in optometry can take graduates, and about the impact each graduating student can make as alumni. They exhorted the graduands and prize givers to realise that despite just completing a long and difficult course, graduation is really only the beginning, and to be brave and to always say "yes" when asked to try something new. Celine Zhang, our student speaker for the night, gave an accomplished speech that highlighted to all attendees the maturity and vim of the graduating class. We are grateful for the support of industry, who kindly sponsored awards, and also for the presence of the Dean of the Faculty of Science, Professor Emma Johnston, for presenting the awards to our prizewinners.
Finishing your degree doesn't mean you're no longer a part of UNSW SOVS. Stay in touch with us through our Alumni Newsletters and yearly alumni evening.
Congratulations to our undergraduate and postgraduate prize winners of 2017, who were recognised at the 2018 graduation dinner
