Practice Placements

Four practice placements are integrated within the taught course, to enable you to apply your theoretical knowledge within the practical context and to develop the core skills required to be an effective dietetic practitioner. One of these placements (2 weeks at the end of Year One) will provide an opportunity to experience a dietetic workplace setting outside of clinical practice. This may be in the medical nutrition industry, a charity organisation, a school, the sport and leisure industry or the food industry amongst other settings. This will broaden your awareness of the varied roles that dietitians may undertake, whilst affording you the opportunity to gain additional skills in business and innovation to support you in future employment.

All placements must be passed in addition to the academic element of the course in order for you to register and work as a dietitian.

- Consolidating Professional Practice.

You will also undertake a 60-credit MSc project module where you’ll work independently or in a group to analyse and report on a particular area of dietetics. You will be supported by a tutor with specialist knowledge and experience in the field.
