Program description

Dietetics and Nutrition - MSc (Full-time)

Why study this course?

The Dietetics and Nutrition MSc is an intensive course suitable for graduates with a scientific background wishing to pursue a career as a dietitian.

Dietitians are the only qualified health professionals that assess, diagnose and treat diet and nutrition related problems at an individual and wider public health level. Dietitians use the most up-to-date public health and scientific research on food, health and disease, which they translate into practical guidance to enable people to make appropriate lifestyle and food choices. (Ref: Role of Dietitians)

The course provides teaching and learning in food, nutrition, dietetics and relevant disease aetiology, pathology and management. Additionally, clinical skills, research skills and public health are embedded in the course.

Through successful completion of the course, which includes three compulsory practice placements, you’ll develop the necessary knowledge and skills to provide eligibility to apply to the register of health professionals who meet the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) standards for training, professional skills and behaviour.
