ABDO announce further freeze on fees
Following positive negotiations, ABDO College can announce that fees for the BSc(Hons) in Ophthalmic Dispensing will be frozen for academic year 2021/22.
The BSc(Hons) in Ophthalmic Dispensing is offered by ABDO College in collaboration with Canterbury Christ Church University (CCCU). ABDO College has successfully negotiated the fees freeze with CCCS in order to support current and prospective students during a period that has been financially challenging for both employers and individuals.
ABDO College’s Head of Operations Steve Hertz says, “It is very encouraging to be able to freeze fees, and I hope this allows more students to start or continue their studies this Autumn. Along with the payment plans now offered by ABDO College, this makes ABDO College’s blended learning approach accessible to as many trainee dispensing opticians as possible. It has been great to welcome back small groups of students on block release at the college over the last month, and we are preparing for a busy Autumn term with options in place to ensure all students’ education continues uninterrupted and students can study with confidence.”
This news follows the announcement that ABDO College is also freezing fees on all other courses, including those for optical assistants and contact lens and low vision courses for qualified dispensing opticians.
