Dietitians are the only qualified health professionals that assess, diagnose and treat diet and nutrition related problems at an individual and wider public health level. Dietitians use the most up-to-date public health and scientific research on food, health and disease, which they translate into practical guidance to enable people to make appropriate lifestyle and food choices. (Ref: Role of Dietitians)
The Dietetics and Nutrition MSc at London Metropolitan University provides teaching and learning in food, nutrition, dietetics and relevant disease aetiology, pathology and management. Additionally, clinical skills, research skills and public health are embedded in the course.
London Met has state-of-the-art facilities including a simulated ward and outpatients department to help you develop your skills in clinical practice. Some specialist aspects of the course are delivered by guest lecturers who are experts within the field of health and nutrition and dietetics.
Through successful completion of the course, which includes three compulsory practice placements, you’ll develop the necessary knowledge and skills to provide eligibility to apply to the register of health professionals who meet the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) standards for training, professional skills and behaviour.
After the course
The Dietetics and Nutrition MSc will provide dietetic graduates with core knowledge and skills to enable individuals to work in a wide variety of areas such as public health and health promotion, the management of nutrition related disease and/or disease related malnutrition and in primary care managing dietary needs in long term health conditions.
Dietitians work as part of a team to manage the health and nutritional needs of individuals, communities and populations. Graduating from MSc Dietetics and Nutrition is the start of lifelong learning and an exciting and varied career in nutrition, health and disease management.
