Course description

Podiatrists study the structure and function of the whole body and specialise in the foot, ankle and lower limb. On graduating, you’ll be a qualified healthcare professional making your own clinical decisions. You’ll be ready to work alone or as part of a multi-disciplinary team to deliver preventative care, diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of problems affecting the lower limb. You’ll be taught about anatomy, physiology and pathology, and how the body reacts to illness and injury –with a special focus on feet and lower limb problems. One of the distinctive features of this course is the vast amount of practical experience it gives you. Under supervision, you’ll start seeing patients after Christmas of your first year in our on-site Clinical Education Centre. You’ll also undertake clinical placements within National Health Service clinics across London and the east of England.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
The stats here cover not just anatomy, physiology and pathology courses, but also neuroscience and physiotherapy. Physiotherapy is much the most popular of the four. So, a lot of the data you’re looking at is really for physiotherapists, who have excellent employment rates - although all the subjects under this group do better than average. Anatomy and physiology graduates often take further study — usually moving on to a medical degree - and neurosciences graduates opt for a more academic route in study. Pathology graduates tend to go into work. Physiotherapy graduates mainly go straight into work, and a large majority got into physiotherapy roles within six months of graduation in 2016, usually either in hospitals or private practice. There are shortages of graduates in all of these disciplines although issues with funding roles, particularly in physiotherapy, still mean that these degrees are not a guaranteed path to a job - but the chances of getting a job are very good.
