Course summary

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.

Description:

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 Postgraduate Diploma pathway is studied over a shorter period of 17 months and requires completed modules with a total of 225 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.

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.
