Our Pre-registration Programme will give you the best possible start to your career in optics and put everything you have learned at University into practice.

This is a 52 week programme which will start in the summer of 2022 and will be in one of our 450 practices across the UK – where you can really get to understand what it’s like to work in optics with Europe’s leading health and beauty retailer and experience what makes us strive to be No 1 for Customer Care. This programme is focused on ensuring you qualify as an Optometrist and have a chance to find out what being a Boots Optometrist means.
