Matt Rose joined Cadbury College in 1997 to study A-Levels in Chemistry, Biology, Maths and Further Maths. Reflecting on his time spent studying at Cadbury College, Matt said, "I thoroughly enjoyed my time at the college, and I actually met my now-wife and Best Man there too! I have many happy memories from my time there! Whilst I was studying my A-Levels, Cadbury hosted a career-focussed talk discussing embarking on a career in Optometry. It was because of this talk, complemented by teacher support and my enjoyment of the subjects, that I decided to study Optometry as a university degree."
Matt studied a BSC (Hons) Optometry degree at the Institute of Science and Technology at the University of Manchester between 1998 and 2001, followed by the successful completion of his Professional Qualifications in 2002.
