Getting registered and preparing for practise
This information is for optometry students in their final year of university study and outlines the steps required to become a registered optometrist in Australia. As a student enrolled in a health practitioner training program, you are already registered with the Optometry Board of Australia (OBA) via the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA). Your university automatically completes this student registration on your behalf. Once you are ready to graduate from university, you must then apply for graduate registration as a registered health practitioner via AHPRA.
