Course summary

Patients who have problems with their feet or lower limbs need expert care and attention. Podiatrists are independent highly skilled professionals, able to both diagnose and treat problems affecting the feet and lower limbs.

We aim to develop creative, innovative and skilled podiatric practitioners with a communicative and caring attitude towards patients. You will gain practical experience in the clinical environment, observing and working alongside skilled and experienced and world-renowned researchers.

This programme is approved by the UK Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists and the UK Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC).

It is the only Podiatry programme in the UK to offer an HCPC-approved international academic exchange. This is with La Trobe University, Melbourne, Australia.

Assessment methods

We use a wide range of learning and teaching methods to ensure that you have both the necessary knowledge and understanding of business and management and a portfolio of intellectual and personal skills.

Each module on the programme uses its own learning, teaching and assessment strategy to achieve learning objectives. Assessment methods vary between modules and may include unseen examinations, class tests, essays, management reports, case studies, presentations, and group work.

Teaching methods

The learning and teaching methods we use ensure that our programme is both vocationally relevant and academically challenging. Our approach is student-centred, practical, participative and relevant to the needs of employers.

We've moved away from the traditional teacher-centric learning to a more independent learning approach, where you are encouraged to develop critical thinking skills.

Your career

As well as working within the NHS, you could make a career in the private sector - from high street retailers to sports medicine centres or running your own business.

GCU graduates have also gone on to pursue research activities, entered the world of health-related commerce or further developed their skills to become podiatric surgeons.
