Dietetics and Nutrition

Our Courses

We promote flexibility on our Continuing Professional Development Scheme with many of our modules being delivered over teaching blocks of 3 day + 1 day and some modules delivered as distance or on-line learning. We welcome applications from practitioners who already have a number of existing credits and facilitate individualised courses to ensure practice requirements are met. All our modules are practice focused and offer flexibility in order to develop 'bespoke' degree courses for staff within your organisation; we would be happy to work with you to further develop provision. Individual modules may be undertaken on a 'stand-alone' basis to facilitate flexibility. Funded places* are available.

*NHS staff (or staff from the private/voluntary sector whose organisations either offer placements for student healthcare professionals or contribute to the delivery of NHS services within the Yorkshire and Humber region) may be eligible for HEYH funded CPD places. Please contact the university if you are unsure about your eligibility.

Specialist Facilities
