Podiatry

Podiatry is a rewarding and varied healthcare profession involving understanding of musculoskeletal function and the diagnosis and treatment of patients with lower limb issues. Learn the key concepts and theories of podiatric practice including anatomy, biomechanics, physiology and podiatric medicine and minor surgery with work based learning and practical teaching in modern, industry standard facilities. The Podiatry BSc (Hons) has been designed and continues to be developed by expert educationalists, service-users and carers. We feel that our course strongly benefits from having the views of our service-users in the development of new strategies and module design. This is achieved through our school forum where our service-users are invited to contribute to curriculum development and decision-making. As a podiatry graduate you will be a highly skilled health professional who can work confidently with a variety of different patients in a range of settings. * In the 2016 National Student Survey, 93 per cent of our graduates praised this programme for having staff that were enthusiastic about the course they were teaching. 95 per cent of our students go on to work or study, with the average starting salary of £21,000 a year. * You'll be eligible to apply for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) following successful completion of the course. * Spend 1,000 hours in work-based learning over the three year - placements in clinical practice are an integral part of your podiatry training. * Learn key concepts and theories at four locations, including our NHS Training Clinic, ensuring exposure to a variety of specialisms. * Engage with a small cohort of like minded students.
