Dietitians make a vital contribution to people's health and wellbeing. On this course, you will learn the theory and practice of nutritional science so that you can register with the Health and Care Professions Council as a qualified dietitian.

You will explore the composition of food, the nature of nutrients and their metabolism in the body, nutritional requirements throughout the lifespan and the dietary effects of food on health. You will also learn how to work alongside service users with acute and chronic disease in hospitals and primary care settings.

You will gain the professional expertise necessary for effective practice, critical evaluation and adaptability when faced with the changing dynamics of working in health and social care. You will also be well prepared for the responsibilities and expectations associated with being a healthcare professional, and consider the ethical and legal boundaries arising from exercising a professional duty of care.

Our course reflects the changing nature of dietetic practice and the demands of the new entry practitioner within health and social care. Academic staff are recognised nationally and internationally for their expertise in dietetics, and the course retains a national profile for postgraduate provision in the UK. You will be able to meet professional competencies through a range of practice learning opportunities provided in the NHS. Many of our graduates go on to permanent positions as a direct result of having been in touch with employers whilst on practice placement. Likewise, students have the opportunity to collaborate with dietitians working in clinical practice on research projects. Our course is approved by the Health and Care Professions Council and you will be eligible to register and practice as a dietitian in the UK once you've successfully completed our course.
