Isabelle's Story

Isabelle wanted to change career direction and study Dietetics for her postgraduate studies. As she hadn’t previously studied nutrition or biology, Isabelle did a couple of the Leeds Beckett Continuing Professional Development (CPD) modules in health to help her gain the qualifications she needed.

I’m looking forward to the three clinical placements which give me real work experience in either a hospital or another health setting. I chose Dietetics because I want to help people and I'm passionate about food!

Why I chose to study Dietetics at Leeds Beckett University

I had studied my Bachelor’s degree in Yorkshire, and I loved Leeds when I visited. The great city combined with a reputable course in Dietetics made Leeds Beckett an obvious choice for me. 

Student Services have been fantastic! I didn’t know if I would be accepted on to the Dietetics course – so I was a little anxious. I worked really hard on my CPD. I also looked into the resources that Leeds Beckett offered that could help with my application. The careers service supported me with writing my personal statement and preparing me for the interviews.


Living in Leeds

I love that my course is in the city centre with all the shops on my doorstep. Leeds is a big city and all the big department stores and shops are based here. All the stores that are in London are also in Leeds. The only difference is that they are within walking distance, which is really nice.

My future

I chose to switch to Dietetics because I wanted to help people, and I'm passionate about food! My end goal is to be a Registered Dietitian.  Right now I want to focus on my short-term goals and focus on my studies.
