Dietetics – BSc (Hons)

Why study this course?

On this undergraduate course, you’ll learn the skills necessary to become a dietitian – the only qualified health professional that can assess, diagnose and treat diet and nutrition related problems at an individual and wider public health level.

More about this course

We’ll introduce you to the most up-to-date public health and scientific research on food, health and disease. This practical guidance will enable you to help members of the public make healthier lifestyle and food choices.

Throughout your studies, you’ll gain an understanding of the conditions where nutrition plays a significant role in disease management. You’ll develop the knowledge to provide nutrition and dietetic care for individuals, groups and populations who have or already are at risk of developing long-term health conditions.

You’ll get hands-on experience through three full-time work placements during the course. There’s a two-week placement in Year 1, a 12-week placement in Year 2 and a 14-week placement in Year 3 that normally includes a public health nutrition component. Your work will primarily be in National Health Service (NHS) organisations in London and your performance will be assessed as part of your degree.
