Studied before or got relevant experience?
A qualification, HE credits or relevant experience may count towards your course at Brighton, and could mean that you do not have to take some elements of the course or can start in year 2 or 3.
If you have an honours degree in biological sciences, behavioural sciences or other health professional education, with a minimum grade of 2:2 (GPA3.00), you may be able to apply for our accelerated Podiatry (Pre-registration) MSc.
English language requirements
IELTS 7.0 overall, no element below 6.5.
Knowledge and experience
All candidates must be able to demonstrate good knowledge of podiatry as a profession, from talking to and, if possible, shadowing qualified podiatrists, visiting departments and reading relevant material. This should provide an insight into how this experience has informed their decision to become a podiatrist. Experience of working in other caring environments or voluntary work is also beneficial.
