Glasgow Caledonian University Dietetics
If you have a science degree with a substantial proportion of physiology and biochemistry, this course will enable you to apply that knowledge in the context of nutrition and dietetics. You will learn about nutritional science and its application in health and illness, together with life-cycle nutrition, biochemistry, physiology and food science.
The combination of academic and clinical practice learning activities throughout the course will enable you to develop a patient-centred approach and equip you with the knowledge and skills to become a registered dietitian.
An expansion of interest in food in relation to health, alongside the changing nature of the NHS, has extended the boundaries of dietetics to include a wide range of professional opportunities.
Current employment rates are good with most graduates, who are prepared to work throughout the UK, being employed within six months of graduation.
Applicants should send a completed Dietetics Pre-Requisite Knowledge Form when applying for this programme. It is available on our website.
