    I'm doing SLT and I know just enough audiology to wonder why people would want to do it. But then I don't have a lot of experience of either.*

    Do you have any experience of either of them? Do you see yourself in a hospital or on the high street? What client groups do you have a preference in working with, if any? Are you prepared for a largely diagnostic career or are you potentially looking more for a therapeutic role? Do you have a lot of patience?*

    If you can answer those, I can advise which you'd probably be happier doing.*

    Both are good careers. Why not look at course details and see which 1 you'd enjoy more? Also take a look at the job descriptions and see if you prefer one over the other.

    I've just finished my first year of Audiology and am really loving it. However I did know that this is exactly what I wanted to do before starting the course. One of the conditions of one of my offers was to write up a day that I had spent with Audiologists in the local hospital. If you are able to spend a day at Audiology and a day with Optometry, it might give you a better idea which you would enjoy more.
