Course Summary

Develop a solid academic foundation in a rapidly changing field with our MSc Theory of Podiatric Surgery. Accredited by the College of Podiatry in London and offered in collaboration with Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh, this part-time programme prepares you to pursue a successful career in advanced practice or podiatric surgery.

We draw on a wide variety of current teaching methods and combine independent work with a team approach to care, giving you a new perspective on critical thinking, problem-solving and reflexive practice in the field. Your programme will arm you with the skills and tools you need to improve the quality and widen the scope of your practice – advancing your own career while you contribute to the common good.

You’ll learn to systematically gather and appraise information and make sound judgements even in the absence of complete data – and you’ll prepare to share those discoveries with your colleagues and the broader healthcare community.

Graduate prospects

The skills you acquire in our part-time MSc Theory of Podiatric Surgery will help you advance your career in surgery, musculoskeletal practice or an advanced clinical setting – whether you work in the UK or abroad. Successful completion of the Postgraduate Diploma (PgD) is a prerequisite to eligibility for practical study under the mentorship of a podiatric surgeon.

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.
