Course summary

Overview

The Dietetics study programme aims to equip graduates who already have a BSc or MSc in Nutrition with the knowledge, skills and professional attitudes required to practice as a Registered Dietitian.

Course detail

Registered dietitians are qualified health professionals who assess, diagnose and treat diet and nutrition problems in society. They translate public health and scientific research on food, health and disease into practical guidance enabling people to make appropriate lifestyle and food choices. The MSc pathway is a two-year course that requires modules totalling 285 credits. Part of the course is spent in clinical practice through placements and will provide you with unique opportunities to develop your clinical skills and improve your employability.

Teaching and assessment

We use different teaching strategies: lectures, seminars, food service and diet therapy practicals, case study-based learning, observed structured clinical examinations and group tutorials, to deliver the modules on the course. You will also be expected to undertake a significant amount of independent study. Your performance will be assessed through a combination of coursework and written/practical examinations. Forms of assessment may typically include coursework and examinations. Coursework contributes approximately 40% and examinations approximately 60% to your final mark.

Career prospects

Most of our graduates go on to work within the NHS, either in hospital or community health services. Former graduates have also found employment in a range of organisations including research institutes, consumer groups, food retailers, and government departments and agencies. Others have become successful food and health journalists or developed careers in the food and pharmaceutical industries.
