Dietetics and Human Nutrition - Coventry University

Our course aims to prepare the next generation of health professionals and scientists, who truly understand food science and the impact of and influences upon food and diet in society. With the recent trend in largely under-qualified influencers offering nutritional advice, it’s perhaps more important than ever that those with a genuine interest in healthy eating become properly trained, which is the intention of this course. Through practical and theoretical teaching, we aim to develop your skills and turn you into future practitioners, capable of translating complex information into manageable nutrition advice. The demand for registered dietitians continues as lifestyles, healthy eating and nutrition become key issues within society. This course is designed to meet the needs of future practitioners and has a particular emphasis on public health and evidence based practice. **Key Benefits** * Supervision whilst you are on your placements by a member of the dietetics teaching team and support from dedicated placement staff. * Links with local employers and professional bodies to ensure that the course content and delivery meets current and future employer needs. * A diverse teaching team including a range of clinical and academic experts committed to providing a range of excellent learning experiences. * Placements are normally organised within the West Midlands where students, under supervision, apply the skills that are taught in the Faculty’s clinical laboratories. * Eligibility to apply for registration with the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC) upon successful completion of this course. For more information please see the HCPC website. * Access to the broad research interests of the teaching team, which include: the food poverty, obesogenic environments, whole-person care including spirituality, behaviour change, and ethical decision making by dieticians. All applicants will be required to attend an interview. In line with the National Health Service Constitution, we use a values based recruitment approach in seeking candidates with the appropriate values to support effective team working in delivering excellent patient care. All offers are subject to satisfactory occupational health clearance, a criminal record check via Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) or equivalent for non-UK residents and a successful interview. For international students, if you are offered a place, the International Office will send you instructions about how to complete your DBS check, including a link to the UK Home office DBS website.
