Dietetics

Welcome

With nutrition acknowledged as a key to the future of modern medicine, dietetics is one of the world’s fastest-growing professions. It’s also a career in which you can make a difference by providing communities with knowledge and advice on nutrition to improve quality of life.

Today, with so much misinformation about foodstuffs in the marketplace, the importance of the role of dietitians is even more critical.

The Bachelor of Science degree in Dietetics trains competent and ethical dietetics professionals who will contribute to the medical therapeutic, community nutrition and specialised food service sectors.

This BSc Dietetics degree compares favourably to similar qualifications internationally. Graduates may be eligible for registration with relevant professional regulatory bodies in the United Kingdom, USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand after presenting course outlines to the application bodies and/or writing the required entrance exams.

“The doctor of the future will no longer treat the human frame with drugs, but rather will cure and prevent disease with nutrition.”
