The qualifications (MSc, Diploma, Certificate) will appeal to clinicians and scientists who wish to provide treatment, develop services and conduct research in this field.
This Eating Disorders and Clinical Nutrition programme from University College London (UCL) provides a sound programme in human nutrition covering practical approaches, research methods and nutrition in the general population and in disease states.
Eating disorders are presented using different teaching methods with an extensive series of seminars, tutorials and brief clinical attachments at St Ann's, Maudsley and other Hospitals.
Students will also undertake a significant research project.
Teaching and learning
The programme is delivered through a combination of seminars, lectures, laboratory work, and practicals. Assessment is through examination, presentations, essays, practical reports and the dissertation.
This degree will give graduates a clear advantage when applying for clinical and research positions in units in which children, adolescents or adults with eating disorders are assessed, treated and recruited into research programmes. It is particularly relevant for individuals wishing to apply for senior positions in these units, as well as graduates who aspire to studying for a doctorate in the eating disorders field.
Surveys have shown that eating disorder services are continuing to develop in all parts of the country, providing substantial opportunities for employment in this burgeoning field.
This MSc is registered with the Association for Nutrition, a professional body that holds the UK Voluntary Register of Nutritionists (UKVRN), a competency-based register of nutritionists. Graduates of this programme will be eligible to apply for direct entry to the UKVRN as Registered Associate Nutritionists.
