Put your best foot forward in a degree that is the basis of an exciting professional future.
With a focus on biomechanics, foot function and improved mobility, our Bachelor of Pedorthics is the most advanced pedorthic education and training program in the country, and the only one of its kind offered by an Australian university.
Pedorthics is a person-centred field of allied health focused on creative design solutions for commercial and orthopaedic footwear and orthotic appliances; to improve body function, prevent injury and reduce the impact of disease and disability.
You'll learn about health conditions that impact the feet, the mechanics of gait, footwear design and production and even entrepreneurship. You'll develop your practical skills in our advanced on-campus laboratories and gain invaluable work experience through substantial placements. Our teaching team includes world leading certified pedorthists and multidisciplinary experts.
As a graduate, you will have the opportunity to work in a range of sectors, including health practices, disability services and the sporting and fashion footwear industries. You'll draw on your knowledge to perform comprehensive evidence-based assessments to diagnose conditions of the lower limb and be able to prescribe, design, and fabricate creative solutions by making orthotic appliances modifying footwear or custom-making orthopaedic footwear.
