Course content

Professional development to gain skills in critical thinking, problem solving and reflective practice.

The University of Nottingham has been a recognised provider of the British Dietetic Association's (BDA) masters in Advanced Dietetic Practice programme since 2008. This postgraduate qualification has been designed to meet the BDA's requirements of both work-based learning and research skills which is a requirement for ongoing registration with the Health Professions Council.

You can study part-time, following a modular structure that allows you to progress at a rate to suit your own personal and professional situation. You can enrol on individual modules or pursue a route leading to the award of certificate, diploma or masters in Advanced Dietetic Practice.

  • Continuing your professional development is recognised as important by government, professional bodies and the public sector
  • Develop your ability to evaluate current practice critically, both from the wider professional picture and an individual point of view
  • Tailor your learning to suit your personal and professional situation, choose to study individual modules, a postgraduate certificate, diploma or the complete masters programme

This is a postgraduate post-registration programme suitable as continuing professional development for dietitians and other healthcare professionals. It is not a postgraduate pre-registration course for individuals with a first degree wanting to train as a dietitian; it does not lead to HCPC registration and does not offer the opportunity for hospital experience.
