BSc (Hons) Podiatry

 

Patients who have problems with their feet or lower limbs need expert care and attention. Podiatrists are independent highly skilled professionals, able to both diagnose and treat problems affecting the feet and lower limbs.

We aim to develop creative, innovative and skilled podiatric practitioners with a communicative and caring attitude towards patients. You will gain practical experience in the clinical environment, observing and working alongside skilled and experienced and world-renowned researchers. 

This programme is approved by the UK Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists and the UK Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC).
