We 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. Podiatry 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. You will accumulate 1,000 hours of clinical practice, giving you essential experience of working with NHS patients and managing your own caseload before you qualify as a podiatrist. You will also undertake your own research. Studying podiatry at Brighton offers the opportunity to work in 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.
