Lucycool, would you mind sharing your timetable with me? If I can't get timetables for my specifc schools then a rough idea of what everyone else does will do. BTW I got exactly the same reply from the schools that I requested timetables from. I don't understand why its such a secret.

Hi Ver,

I went to Brighton and had such a great experience that i didn't want to leave so i'm continuing by doing my masters there as well. the staff are great and having our own podiatric hospital with NHS patients is a brilliant tool for clinical skills.

Definitely give Brighton a thought!

I want to do my final year in the UK. I have done 16 units here in Australia, and was getting no practical, we would be in clinic 1 day a week and be lucky to see 2 patients. That is not 1,000 of clinical practice. It's 800 hours of sitting in the clinic. And don't get me started on the travelling.....impossible if you don't have a car. (And my house was eaten by termites, and they refused to regard this as a 'special circumstance')
I have tried transferring to another university, but theirs is a 4 year course and they want me to start again at year 1!!!!!
I like solo work, I am very bad at group work. I have no dependents. I am not at all squeamish. I am very, very hands-on. I am on the shady side of 40.
I can afford to live anywhere in the UK, and have a UK passport despite having lived most of my life in other countries.
I went to Cordwainer's technical college, and know a fair bit about shoes, am tempted by Northhampton. But am open to all.
I am very tempted to go to the UK and do the FHP course, (but I rather think I don't even have to do that to practise) then get into any course and do it part-time.
Please advise:

Hi CTCL,

People do the FHP course for a variety of reasons (eg some already have degrees and do not want to do another academic course).
You do not have to do any training at all to set up in the UK as a foot health practitioner/foot health professional (not recommended)

My suggestion is to do a three year full-time degree in a location that you like.
I think, on consideration, that provided the degree can promise the required number of clinical hours (with real patients and plenty of them) the location is much more important than the college.

Didn't get in ANYWHERE. Am going to continue working in the UK as a FHP.
Besides, gives me time to continue studying Dyshidrosis. (20 treated, 18 cures.)
However, if anyone can get me a place, I am interested.
