Course content

Dietitians can make a vital contribution to people's health and wellbeing. We will provide you with the knowledge and professional skills required to become a qualified dietitian.

You will learn to interpret nutritional science and its application in health and illness, and you will draw on biochemistry, physiology, food science and social science perspectives to develop an evidence-based and critical approach to dietetic practice and the effective management of therapeutic conditions.

The combination of academic and practice-learning activities will enable you to develop a patient-centred approach and will equip you with the knowledge and skills to become a professional dietitian working in acute and primary care settings. You will also develop effective teamworking and communication skills, enabling you to lead on group education and nutritional interventions to influence the health and eating behaviour of individuals and communities.

This course is approved by the Health and Care Professions Council and is accredited with the British Dietetic Association.
