BSc (Hons) Podiatry - A Momentous Day!

On 11th November 2020, we The SMAE Institute, had the HCPC approval visit for our proposed BSc (Hons) Podiatry course to be delivered collaboratively with Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh. The event was very thorough and we are thrilled to announce the programme was recommended for approval by the HCPC, subject to some conditions being met.


There is now a period of a few months where the paperwork to meet these conditions needs to be processed, and once this has been achieved and the approval is confirmed in writing we will issue an updated statement to this effect. We remain on track for this programme to be operational by September 2021 and more information about the programme will be released in the next few months.


We wish to give special thanks to the programme team at SMAE and the wider team at QMU for all their hard work over many months and years to bring this to fruition.


This truly is a momentous day for the organisation and a positive day for the profession as a whole.
