Dietitians strive to provide the best possible nutritional care for clients with acute and chronic health conditions.

As part of this course, you’ll:

  • Learn to interpret and communicate the science of nutrition
  • Understand how to use dietary manipulation and food to treat disease and optimise health
  • Gain practical experience in our modern health science, clinical skills and catering laboratories

The Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC) regulates dietetics. The title of Dietitian is protected by law. This means that anyone who uses a designated title must be on the HCPC Register. Successful completion of the BSc (Hons) Dietetics course will give you the eligibility to apply for registration with the HCPC after you graduate.


You’ll undertake practice placements within nutrition and dietetics departments across Yorkshire and the North East of England. Placements will take place:

  • At the end of year one (three-week placement)
  • At the end of year two (13-week placement)
  • During year three (12-week placement)

The placements as listed above are a requirement of the British Dietetic Association (BDA) curriculum framework and will take place in quality assured practice settings. 

During your placements, you’ll be given the opportunity to practically apply the theories and evidence you have gained during academic study throughout diverse areas of the health service. You’ll be given time to critically reflect on and enhance your skills and academic knowledge before moving onto the next placement, enabling you to demonstrate continuous development.
