MODULES & LEARNING

You will develop your understanding of the nutritional, physiological, psychological and psychosocial facets of eating disorders. You will evaluate current practice and reflect on your own skills in these areas.

You will develop core skills in CBT techniques, and learn how to apply these through peer feedback and case study assessment.

By evaluating information from a variety of sources, you will formulate innovative, low intensity psychological treatment interventions that can be used with your clients.

You will be taught by experts who practice in the field, including course leader Ursula Philpot, former Chair of The British Dietetic Association's Mental Health Group and who has appeared as the on-screen dietitian for the Channel 4 series Supersize vs Superskinny.

We provide you with a great environment for networking - an opportunity to talk with your peers in healthcare, share ideas and learn. You'll also have access to our Communications Suite, allowing you to try out and get feedback on your developing practical skills.

Because you'll be studying at the same time as working, you'll be able to go back to your workplace and apply your learning straight away.

FEES & FUNDING
Studying part-time gives you the flexibility to learn at your own pace. Because of this, our tuition fees are calculated using credit points. Each module you study has a credit point value. Most taught postgraduate modules have a credit point value of 20. The tuition fee for students entering in in 2017/18 on this course is £1080 for each 20 credit point module. For modules with a different credit point value their cost can be calculated by multiplying the credit value of the module by the cost per credit point of £54. The amount you will pay may increase each year in line with inflation.
See further information on financing your studies.

Health and social care staff within Yorkshire and Humber whose organisations provide NHS commissioned services may be eligible for Yorkshire and Humberside LETB funding. NHS funded places are limited and you may need to seek an alternative funding source. To apply for NHS funding use the statement of support form which can be found using this link.
Part-time rates for international students are not automatically displayed as there are specific visa requirements which generally limit students to study in the UK on a full-time basis. Should you wish to query your visa status you can contact Tier4 Compliance@leedsbeckett.ac.uk. If you are able to study on a part-time basis please contact fees@leedsbeckett.ac.uk for further information on course fees.
