This joint Master of Science in Clinical Optometry program seeks to admit students interested not only in furthering personal clinical knowledge and skills but in moving forward the scope of practice in South Korea. Admission is based on both academic and non-academic qualifications. Applications are screened by an admissions committee at Eulji University then forwarded to the admissions committee at SCCO. The required prerequisites are: current optician license holder, BS diploma in optometry, essay showing strong motivation/desire for the profession of optometry, letters of recommendation, and volunteer/work experiences. In addition, MS applicants must meet a minimum criteria on the Test of English for International Communication (TOEIC) exam which is administered by YBM Education in South Korea. Once reviewed, qualified applicants are invited to a personal video conference interview.
Applications can be obtained from the Office of International Optometry at SCCO or Eulji University. A $75 non-refundable application fee is required to be submitted to the Office of International Optometry at SCCO via Flywire. The application, letters of recommendation, personal statement, a current curriculum vitae, and TOEIC scores are all sent to the International Optometry office at Eulji University. Applications must be submitted by the end of the calendar year just prior to matriculation.
