Overview

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.

Our course reflects the changing nature of dietetic practice and the demands of the new entry practitioner within health and social care. Academic staff are recognised nationally and internationally for their expertise in dietetics, and the course retains a national profile for postgraduate provision in the UK. You will be able to meet professional competencies through a range of practice learning opportunities provided in the NHS.

Our course is approved by the Health and Care Professions Council and you will be eligible to register and practice as a dietitian in the UK once you've successfully completed our course.

We understand that full-time study does not suit everyone. That’s why we offer courses which give you the opportunity to decide where, when and how you can get involved in learning. Studying a distance learning course offers the convenience and flexibility to make education work for you. Whether you’d like to fit your studies around childcare, develop your skills while working or, quite simply, want to learn from the comfort of your own home, we can help you gain a qualification at a time and pace that suits your lifestyle.

Like our students on campus, you will have the same excellent teaching and learning resources, however you’ll find these online instead of in a lecture theatre. Not only are all the modules taught online, but you will also have access to an online community and more than 140,000 books and journals in our online library.
