I just got conditional acceptance a couple days ago to Aston Uni in England... anyone know what the difference is? And if we can still come back to NA and practice? I just applied randomly to this school a while ago, so Im kinda suprised to hear from them...

You can practice in Canada if you pass the CSAO (but may also have to do the bridging program at UW). However, its less clear whether you would be able to practice in the US. Some states explicity state in their legislation that you must hold a "doctor of optometry" degree.

My mother is an OD who got her degree in Cardiff Whales, it actually depends on the province you want to practice in. You may have to do more schooling for some of the provinces, you should check it with the Provincial Association you hope to be a part of someday. Most have websites and contact information.
