Optoversity Challenge 2021

Non-location specific

21 March 2021

Further information

World Optometry Week kicks off on Sunday 21st of March with The Out of the Box Optics Optoversity Challenge 2021. This is the only inter-University competition between Optometry students in the UK and ROI. It runs across all year groups and raises funds for Vision Care for Homeless People (VCHP). Last years’ event was a MASSIVE success with Team Hertfordshire taking the title of Optoversity Challenge 2020 winners and the teams raising over £5,500 collectively! Previous participants include Anglia Ruskin, Aston, Bradford, City, Dublin and Plymouth University. The competition is a light-hearted, fun and effective way to prepare students for life beyond University, whilst giving students the opportunity to socialise with each other. Teams from Universities representing 1st, 2nd and Final year (3rd/4th) students are taking part and they want you to sponsor them to give homeless people the gift of sight. Please choose you favourite university team or team member and make a donation...
