If you’re passionate about a healthy lifestyle, our Dietetics and Human Nutrition BSc can qualify you to offer nutrition advice to others.
Dietitians are the only qualified health professionals that assess, diagnose and treat diet and nutrition problems. They translate the latest nutrition science into understandable, practical information about food. They provide education and support to enable people to manage their health and treat nutrition-related disease.
All applicants will be required to attend an interview. In line with the National Health Service Constitution, we use a values based recruitment approach in seeking candidates with the appropriate values to support effective team working in delivering excellent patient care. All offers are subject to satisfactory occupational health clearance, a criminal record check via Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) or equivalent for non-UK residents and a successful interview. For international students, if you are offered a place, the International Office will send you instructions about how to complete your DBS check, including a link to the UK Home office DBS website.
Our course aims to prepare the next generation of health professionals and scientists, who truly understand food science and the impact of and influences upon food and diet in society.
With the recent trend in largely under-qualified influencers offering nutritional advice, it’s perhaps more important than ever that those with a genuine interest in healthy eating become properly trained, which is the intention of this course. Through practical and theoretical teaching, we aim to develop your skills and turn you into future practitioners, capable of translating complex information into manageable nutrition advice.

The demand for registered dietitians continues as lifestyles, healthy eating and nutrition become key issues within society. This course is designed to meet the needs of future practitioners and has a particular emphasis on public health and evidence based practice.
