Dietetics

Dietitians strive to provide the best possible nutritional care for clients with acute and chronic health conditions. Learn to interpret and communicate the science of nutrition and how to use dietary manipulation and food to treat disease and optimise health. You will gain practical experience in our modern health science, clinical skills and catering laboratories. On successful completion of the course, you will be eligible to apply for registration as a dietitian with the Health & Care Professions Council. **PLACEMENTS** You will undertake practice placements within Nutrition and Dietetics departments across Yorkshire and the North East of England - these occur at the end of Year 1 (three-week placement), at the end of Year 2 (13-week placement), and during Year 3 (12-week placement). These placements are a requirement of the British Dietetic Association (BDA) curriculum framework and will take place in quality assured practice settings. You will be given the opportunity to apply the theories and evidence you have acquired during academic study into the practical work completed by dietitians throughout diverse areas of the health service on a daily basis. You will be given time to critically reflect on and enhance your skills and academic knowledge before moving onto the next placement, which will demonstrate continuous development. **NUTRITION LABORATORIES** Our nutrition labs will allow you to develop your practical nutritional skills.
