Dietitians have never been more important. They use their knowledge of food and science to support individuals, groups and populations to improve their health and well-being. Our integrated masters course is accredited by the British Dietetic Association and approved by the Health and Care Professions Council. This means you can become a registered dietitian when you graduate. We recognise the world of dietetics is changing. This integrated masters course helps to prepare you to practice in the modern healthcare setting.
- You'll gain knowledge through a wide range of teaching including nutrition, biochemistry, medicine and pathology and pharmacology.
- You'll gain hands on clinical experience through a number of practice placements.
- You'll learn communication and practical skills in our specially built dietetics suite.
- We teach you research skills. Your final project can directly improve patient care and will support you to deliver evidenced base care that is safe and effective.
In the first year, you'll study nutrition and biochemistry. You'll learn about the role of a registered dietitian and the skills required. There is a short practice placement during the spring semester. In the second year, you’ll build upon your skills in dietetics and communication. Applied science topics include metabolism, nutrition and physiology and medicine. In the third year, you will apply your knowledge to a range of conditions and age groups. You’ll study clinical pharmacology, public health and behavioural management. You will develop core clinical skills on your 12-week full-time placement over the summer. The final year combines a further 12-week practice placement, your research project and advanced dietetics. You'll learn about dietary management in specialist areas, and cover management, leadership and professionalism. Research projects can relate directly to nutrition and human health.
