They're two separate courses. The podiatry course is vocational, whereas the biomedical science isn't. It depends entirely on what you want to do career wise.

It depends what you want to do as a career. I could say podiatry, and you could hate every living second of your job.
Podiatry is vocational, so you're more likely to be employed, but only under that title.
Biomedical science isn't, but it leaves you with more options if you're unsure what to do at the moment career wise.
What jobs are you thinking?

I find Biomedical Science has more options while podiatry has flexible hours
What about the salary?

Podiatry is HCPC registered, so I guess you'll start at NHS band 5.
Biomedical science is academic, so depends on what job you want after, although actually becoming a biomedical scientist would probably be really slim with this route.

The Podiatry course is HCPC registered because on it you'll meet the requirements to register with the HCPC, through placements and other things. Which means you'll have a high chance of working in the NHS.
The biomedical science course isn't registered because it isn't a vocational degree to work as a biomedical scientist, it's a broad degree. The equivalent would be a Healthcare Science (Life sciences) degree, which is a Biomedical Scientist degree with HCPC registration, meaning you're set to work in the NHS once you graduate. However, as you've said you already have a degree. So if you don't mind which job you want to do, I would recommend the Podiatry course, due to the HCPC registration.

the registration is not a problem as you can complete training portfolio.

Biomedical Science is a big field compared to Podiatry.
However,Podiatry is a new field that makes me curious to study it
this confuses me

you mean what by the same thing?
biomedical science is talking about the biology of the body the test of each organ and how well it works and to diagnose the disease.

podiatry is specific to the feet and nothing else
