This BSc Podiatry degree will give you the knowledge and hands-on skills you need to make a positive impact on people’s lives as a podiatrist. As the only Russell Group university in the UK to teach podiatry, we offer a course that is both research-led and student-focused.
As you train to become a podiatrist you'll attend 1,000 hours in placement settings, ranging from the community and acute care to the private and commercial sectors. You'll benefit from the experience of treating real patients under close supervision, and with individual feedback.
Along with learning to diagnose and treat foot and lower limb disorders, you'll be taught about medication and local anaesthesia. You'll also learn to apply research to your clinical practice and undertake a research project in collaboration with research-active supervisors.
All our health science courses have a patient-centred approach. Your training will include ethics and an exploration of how social issues and mental health can influence physical wellbeing.
This course has a strong focus on employability and leadership. You’ll learn how to influence and effect change and develop your innovation and business skills. You'll be eligible to apply for registration as a podiatrist when you graduate.
