Podiatric education at QMU is extremely well established with very strong employability rates. This course is for previous graduates with non-podiatry degrees who want to move into the professional field of Podiatry. It is delivered full-time, and the course has a clinical and health promotion focus.
The course includes multiple Scotland-wide practice placements and on completion you will be able to apply for full registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) to work as a Podiatrist.
A second class honours degree in any discipline. However, where the undergraduate degree is not science or engineering based, applicants should be able to be able to demonstrate research skills. This may have been achieved through completion of a research project as part of the undergraduate degree.
Applicants will also be expected to demonstrate evidence of understanding of the scope of podiatric practice and understanding of the personal attributes of a podiatrist in their application personal statement.
We appreciate that it can be difficult to get shadowing experience, so relevant experience that demonstrates transferable skills to those required by Podiatrists would be beneficial.
