AOP student reps are named.

THE AOP has announced the names of eight of the nine optometry undergraduates selected as student representatives for the Association for the 2013/14 academic year. They are: Sonam Ruparelia for Anglia Ruskin University; Aston University's Malcolm Maclver; the University of Bradford's Melissa Ramsey; Manish Patel for Cardiff University; City University's Tulsi Parekh; Gemma Hill for Glasgow Caledonian University; Henal Patel for the University of Manchester; and Ulster University's Nina Richardson.

All students, alongside new OTstudent representative Mohammed Abid, met at an annual student forum during Optrafair last month.

Head of professional development at the AOP, Karen Sparrow, said: "It has been incredibly difficult to choose one representative per university from the large number of applications which were all of an excellent standard"

A representative for Plymouth University is yet to be confirmed.
