SMAE Institute


Founded in 1919, we are the longest running independent provider of training in Foot Health in the UK, with a reputation for excellence in teaching and pastoral support. Our FHP Diploma is Credit Rated by Queen Margaret University and carries 60 Higher Education Credits at Level 4. We are the only Institute whom offer an FHP Diploma at this level. In addition, we now offer a collaborative Diploma in Higher Education (Podiatry Assistant) that mirrors the first 2 years of the BSc (Hons) Podiatry degree at Queen Margaret University, thus providing successful students direct entry into year 3 of the QMU BSc (Hons) Podiatry programme. This unique approach means that SMAE-trained FHPs have a direct pathway available that can lead to registration as a Podiatrist. Since 2012, The SMAE Institute has also been delivering stand-alone HCPC-approved courses in local anaesthesia and prescription only medicines for Podiatric practice. We also provide membership/medical indemnity insurance & a wide variety of high quality CPD modules.
