Course summary

Course Overview Through this two-year course, you’ll develop the skills and knowledge to work as a dietitian, delivering therapeutic nutrition in both public and private sector organisations. You’ll study the nutrition and health of the population, exploring topics from lifespan nutrition to diet therapy and human metabolism to common chronic diseases, and their management, and how these change over the life course. You’ll also have sessions in our laboratories where you’ll complete practical evaluations. You’ll combine theory and practical sessions so that, when you graduate, you’re prepared to practise as a dietitian professional across health and food sectors. You’ll attend professional development seminars to support you in your preparation for placement practice in a variety of settings. We have established links with industry and facilitate placement opportunities within our networks, enriching your own industry connections and practical experience.

Our MSc (Pre-Registration) Dietetics course has been approved by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and has been accredited by the British Dietetic Association (BDA).
