About the schools of podiatry and course itself
As mentioned about the schools of podiatry provide students with a Bachelors of Science with Honours in podiatry once all of the requirements of the course have been met. All 13 schools in the UK offer courses which are more or less the same because the content is regulated by the HPC and other authorities to ensure that podiatrists graduate with the level of practical experience and theoretical knowledge they need to deliver high quality care.
The course is taught through a series of clinical and taught modules, each of which are assessed. Clinical modules are arranged as placements in either the NHS or private practice, and graduation is dependent on a student satisfying certain criteria during these placements.
The course if usually offered as a full-tie degree lasting 3-4 years depending on the institution in question.
