Podiatrists work with people with and without foot and lower limb problems. They aim to enable people to reach their individual potential and to prevent the development of foot and lower limb disorders. This is achieved through assessment, diagnosis and treatment. It results in improved mobility, independence and quality of life for the people they work with.
Podiatry is a rewarding career which can offer flexibility of working, a challenging scope of practice and contact with a wide range of patients. It is a profession that attracts people from all walks of life including school leavers, graduates from science degrees, the forces, nursing, administrators, engineers and people returning to work after having children.
Our pre-registration podiatry course will provide you with all of the necessary knowledge and skills required to follow a career as a podiatrist including providing eligibility for registration with the Health Professions Council (HPC).
The University of Brighton developed and awarded the first degrees in podiatry in the UK and we have been recognised by podiatry's professional bodies for the standard of our teaching. You will have access to our excellent facilities including our own hospital which will give you an opportunity to gain practical experience of working with real patients throughout your degree.
