Course content

Gain a Master’s degree in Dietetics at UEA so you can practice as a registered dietitian. The dietetic profession is diverse, requiring you to interpret evidence-based practice and professional reasoning, and to provide nutritional advice to improve physical health and quality of life of people during ill-health and disease.

Dietetics is a career suited to good communicators as no two individuals are the same. When treating people, it is important to listen to people’s lifestyles and health behaviours prior to providing individualised nutritional advice.

Through our newly developed programme, you will build a sound knowledge of the nutritional and clinical sciences which underpin health and disease. You will grow your communication skills to provide holistic patient-centered care to people. You will have access to our dedicated learning facilities, including ward simulations and technology suite. You will have direct patient contact and gain experience of professional dietetic practice through more than 1000 placements hours included within the course.
