Hi

It's lovely to hear that you are considering coming to study here at Huddersfield!

I'm currently in my third year at University and my experiences of Huddersfield have been nothing but pleasant! The staff are always on hand to help or just have a chat, and Huddersfield itself has never failed to provide me with things to do. Although i'm not studying podiatry, some of my psychology lessons are taught in the same building as the medical facilitates, and it has always looked very impressive when i walk by!

If you're looking for more student perspectives about the University, we have a numerous blogs, written by current students, about their experiences of the University and the surrounding area, including accounts about their everyday uni life!

Hi soonli,

I am currently a first year podiatry student at the university of Huddersfield!

I am absolutely loving my course so far. When I was picking which university I wanted to go to, Huddersfield really stood out to me due to the on site clinic that has been run for years to the members of the public. During your time here you have lots of practice with treating real patients and honestly it’s the best thing ever as this prepares your immensely for your placement and practical exams.

Not only does this prepare you to the real world In the NHS, it is also brilliant with helping you with other modules on your course for example your podiatric Theory module, which you may get a chance to see most of the diseases and disorders you learn about in lectures! This really helps tie everything in you learn in lectures and put them into practice when treating real patients.

As for the lecturers, everyone is super friendly and helpful and I always feel like I can ask them anything without feeling stupid! Also in your first year during clinic, at first you may feel a bit daunted by it but lecturers provide 3rd year students called “buddies” which are available on clinic every time you treat patients to help you out with anything if you get stuck or you are not sure about something which is really helpful and puts you at ease!

As for the university as a whole, the facilities are brilliant, especially the student union which are always listening to students and keeping up to date with what they want.
Also if your into sports or have any hobbies, or even just have an interest In something, there is usually a society for it!

Not sure about student accommodation, as I am a commenter myself, but I have friends who live in Huddersfield student accommodation and seem to really like it.

Just to end, I think it’s really great you’ve chosen podiatry to study, as the world definitely needs more of us!
There are lots and lots of career options if you decided to further study such as, Msk specialist, wound care specialist, Podiatric Surgeon, forensic podiatrist (which personally I think is really cool), or even into research as there is a lot that still needs to be done! On the other hand, if Your not wanting to peruse the NHS career path, you could also look at private care work, or even work for yourself.

Good look with applying, make sure you visit all universities and look at there facilities and have a chat with lecturers as this confirmed it for me with Huddersfield.

Hopes this helps!

Hi @Quotings Unfortunately Tom's post was from a couple years ago and was in final year then so they will have graduated by now. We do have another ambassador called Tosin who studies podiatry, she is in her 2nd year, I have directed this to her and they will get back to you shortly.

What queries do you have about third year of this course?

Best wishes,
UoH
