As a Dietician you will be a registered health professional who uses knowledge about food, science and the human body in health and disease to educate and give practical advice to patients, colleagues, clients, carers and the general public. You will have the ability to work with patients to change lives, and contribute to the welfare of society. This course will allow you to extend your competence, knowledge and skills beyond those required of an entry-level practitioner in order to enhance your employability and prospects, and support the public health agenda. You will develop skills in empowering individuals, groups and communities to change diet and lifestyle behaviours, and will practice your skills through simulated and inter-professional learning opportunities. Uniquely, you will have the chance to select an elective module, and to earn additional qualifications as you complete the course. This course is now a Master’s programme which was re-accredited from a BSc (Hons) ranked 1st in the UK for Food Science - The Complete University Guide, 2019 League Table, published in 2018.
