So there are two routes to becoming a qualified optom.
1. 3 year Bsc followed by preliminary year working and becoming a qualified optom at the end after final exams.
2. Do the 4 year MOptom which basically includes work placements on the 4th year and further study to take those final exams.
As far as i can tell, option 1 lets you finish your degree earlier and earn a full time wage while becoming trained as a qualified optom.
Option 2 incurs loads more tuition and living debt while not earning any money for the same outcome at the end.
Why would anyone choose MOptom?
