The combination of academic and clinical practice learning activities throughout the course will enable students to develop a patient-centred approach and equip them with the knowledge and skills to become a professional dietitian. Students will acquire an evidence-based and critical approach to dietetic practice, together with developing effective team work and communication skills.
UK Honours degree 2.1 (or equivalent) in a subject containing a substantial proportion (about 30 per cent) of human physiology and biochemistry. IELTS score of 7.0 (or equivalent). We do not expect all our applicants to have visited a dietetic department but if you are fortunate enough to have experience of speaking with a dietitian or visiting a dietetic team, then it is appropriate to include this in your personal statement.
Modules include: Nutrition through the life cycle; dietetics integrated with physiology/biochemistry; food science; nutrition and public health; counselling psychology; clinical education placements.
A variety of assessment methods are used to enhance transferable skills and these include: Essay submissions; oral presentations; exams; literature reviews.
