University of Strathclyde Prosthetics & Orthotics course

The University of Strathclyde has arranged a Departmental tour for anyone interested in applying to study our undergraduate BSc Prosthetics & Orthotics degree. We would appreciate it if you could inform your S5/S6 pupils of this event.

To find out more about studying on our Prosthetics & Orthotics course, register to attend one of our upcoming Department tours on Wednesday 16 November 2022. Meet with staff and students and take part in practical activities within the department to get an insight into some of the work you might be involved in when studying with us.

Tours are running at 1pm and 3pm, with each tour including the same content. There are a limited number of spaces available, so interested pupils are encouraged to register fast to secure a space.

Register for one of our Department tours at https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/prosthetics-and-orthotics-tour-university-of-strathclyde-tickets-439651548617

The only way to join the profession of Prosthetics and Orthotics in the UK is by graduating with an Honours degree in Prosthetics and Orthotics, which is approved by the Health and Care Professions Council. Strathclyde’s BSc (Hons) course, within our Department of Biomedical Engineering, is the only Prosthetics and Orthotics degree available in Scotland. For more course information please see: https://www.strath.ac.uk/studywithus/subjects/prostheticsorthotics/

During their studies, our students undertake two mandatory clinical placements, one in prosthetics and one in orthotics. Each placement lasts a minimum of four months. Students are placed in approved clinical facilities within hospitals or private companies and placement opportunities are available across the UK and Ireland, as well as overseas, in such destinations as Sweden, Denmark and Australia.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch at any time if you have any questions or require any further information.

Thank you for your assistance in promoting this event to your pupils.

Best Wishes,

Moira Laing
