Course summary

Qualify as a dietitian in just two years with this innovative blended learning degree leading to eligibility to apply for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). Blended learning allows you to access study materials and attend online classes from home or from the workplace. You will be required to come to Coventry University campus on some occasions throughout the course in order to use Coventry University’s state-of-the-art simulation and teaching facilities4.Put theory into practice with full-time practice-based placements2 as well as simulation and scenario-based learning to create an interactive and inspirational learning experience.

Assessment method

A mix of assessment types is used to maximise opportunities for a rich learning experience. In practice, dietitians are required to demonstrate a high level of clinical reasoning, communication, service development and leadership skills. They are also required to articulate these decisions in a variety of formats such as written reports, presentations, and digital media. The assessment strategy is therefore designed to reflect these demands.

To work as a teacher at a state school in England or Wales, you will need to achieve qualified teacher status (QTS). This is offered on this course for the following level:

  • Course does not award QTS

Entry requirements

Applicants should hold a good honours degree (2:2 or above) in a health or science related subject. Applications from candidates with relevant experience will be considered on an individual basis. Each application will be considered on its merits and the final decision will be made by the Course Director. GCSE English and Maths at grades A*-C or 9-4. All offers are subject to satisfactory occupational health clearance, a criminal record check via Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) or equivalent for non-UK residents. For international students, if you are offered a place, the International Office will send you instructions about how to complete your DBS check, including a link to the UK Home office DBS website. Satisfactory health clearance and enhanced criminal record disclosure is also required. As part of the health clearance checks you will be required to provide information about your immunity and vaccination status. You will also be required to provide information about your COVID-19 vaccination status. We therefore recommend that you are fully vaccinated including the COVID-19 vaccine. The information you provide will be used to determine your eligibility to go on placement(s). Placements are provided at the placement provider’s discretion.
