The Master of Science in Advanced Practice - Dietetics at Cardiff Metropolitan University is aimed to develop autonomous reflective practitioners who are engaged in advanced practice within a range of organisational and professional settings.


The Master of Science in Advanced Practice - Dietetics at Cardiff Metropolitan University is intended to support and promote continuing professional development of dietitians and their practice. As such, it will help meet the needs of those wishing to progress and evidence their ability to work at Advanced Practitioner level in the NHS.

Any modules at Level 7 (Masters level)  studied elsewhere, that meet the learning needs of the student, can be incorporated into the module mix via the Recognising Prior Learning (RPL) procedure.  In addition, it is recognised that many professions engage with CPD activities which are not credit rated.  The Reflection on Prior Learning module is a 20 credit level 7 generic option module where students can use relevant CPD activities to critically reflect on those experiences and produce a reflective statement and portfolio.  

Career prospects:

The Professional working at Masters Level will be able to lead and contribute to developments in their profession through a more pro-active, critical and reflective approach. Additionally they will be an agent of change, a leader and act as an advocate of their profession. Employability will be enhanced by professions who undertake modules on a CPD basis and NHS professionals will be able to use the awards towards gaining recognition as an Advanced Practitioner. This programme will also provide the opportunity for graduates to go on to further research degree studies.
