About

The Podiatry (Hons) from University of Brighton developed the UK's first degree in podiatry and are proud of our track record in teaching and research. Podiatrists are specialist health professionals who care for patients with foot and lower limb complaints, helping them to maintain their health and wellbeing through podiatric treatment, minor surgery, orthotics, exercise and education.

Overview

Podiatry (Hons) is a highly flexible, rewarding and varied profession. This accredited course offers internal placements at our own Leaf Hospital, enabling you to see patients from the first year. Podiatry (Hons) is offered by University of Brighton.

Studying podiatry at Brighton offers the opportunity to work in a range of specialist disciplines, with optional modules, including diabetes care, musculoskeletal practice and rheumatology. 

As a graduate of the course you will be eligible for professional registration and be fully prepared to begin your career as a podiatrist.

Careers

There is an increasing demand for podiatrists, which is in part due to an emphasis on health and fitness, an ageing population, and the role played by the profession in the care of people with chronic diseases such as diabetes. Our graduates enjoy excellent employment prospects, typically securing roles in advanced practice, clinical teaching, research, education and training, and a variety of positions in the NHS and private sector.
