NEW – COVID-19 vaccine requirement
From 1 April 2022, applicants must either be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 before the start of the course or provide valid proof of medical exemption. This is due to the UK government's vaccine mandate for all people working in health and social care settings. Read our advice and guidance on this new requirement.
Anyone over 21 is considered a mature student. If you already have work or other experience that demonstrates your potential we will take this into account in addition to the grades you have achieved in examinations.
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.
Men are under-represented in many nursing and allied health professions in the UK. We are committed to helping address the balance and particularly welcome applications from male applicants.
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.
