Course summary

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.
As part of the application process, candidates will be interviewed.
