Course Overview

​The programme is approved by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and is accredited by the British Dietetic Association. It enables nutrition graduates to study dietetics so that they can apply to the HCPC to register as a Dietitian at Postgraduate Diploma or MSc level.

The Postgraduate Diploma programme is closely aligned to the BSc (Hons) Human Nutrition and Dietetics programme and contains three compulsory placements in NHS Dietetics Departments in Wales.

Students exiting with the Postgraduate Diploma can return to undertake the dissertation on a part-time basis to gain the MSc Dietetics.

Applications for September 2016 entry open October 2015. Deadline for applications: 15th January 2016.

See the website https://www.cardiffmet.ac.uk/health/courses/Pages/Dietetics---MSc-PgD-.aspx

Entry Requirements​

Applicants should have an honours degree (1st class or 2:1) in human nutrition, or a degree that includes nutrition in the awards title, with sufficient emphasis on physiology and biochemistry (50 credits in total required, with at least 20 credits in human physiology and 20 credits in human biochemistry).

It is also preferable for candidates to have 10 credits in sociology and 10 credits in psychology, however this can be taken alongside other modules on the programme if successful.

Students should have completed their degree not more than five years before their proposed entry to this Masters.
Applicants who have a first or upper second-class honours degree in nutrition, which does not contain either sufficient biochemistry or physiology (but not both), can undertake further relevant modules at undergraduate level, prior to applying for the programme.

Applicants who do not have a degree award in nutrition (1st or 2:1) but meet the requirements for biochemistry and physiology, will need to undertake a further relevant taught course of study to at least to postgraduate diploma level prior to applying for the course.

Applicants who speak English as a second language must have adequate command of English, with an IELTS score of 7, with at least 6.5 in all elements.

​Course Content​​

During the programme students are educated to be responsive practitioners, able to adapt to the changing needs of society. The course is designed to produce critically thinking and reflective professionals who have comprehensive theoretical knowledge, along with a spirit of enquiry and an analytical and creative approach to problem solving.

The programme has two main parts; the Postgraduate Diploma and MSc.

Postgraduate Diploma in Dietetics:
This part contains the taught academic element, which is closely aligned to the BSc (Hons) Human Nutrition and Dietetics programme and three periods of practical training. On completion students can graduate with a Postgraduate Diploma in Dietetics, which leads to eligibility to apply to the HCPC to register as a Dietitian.

MSc:
Students can undertake the dissertation to obtain MSc Dietetics, which can be achieved straight after the Postgraduate Diploma element. On completion students can be awarded MSc Dietetics, which also leads to eligibility to apply to the HCPC to register as a Dietitian. Alternatively the dissertation can be taken after being awarded the Postgraduate Diploma, within 5 years of initial enrolment; this can be taken on a part-time basis.

The taught academic part of the course contains six modules at Level 7 (Masters). In addition, students study professional body modules (level 5) in order to fulfil the requirements of the Health and Care Professions Council and the British Dietetic Association curriculum guidelines.

Learning & Teaching​

​The taught element of the programme involve lectures, tutorials and practical work. Tutorials are mainly case study based where students apply the theoretical knowledge gained in lectures to problem solve case scenarios. Practical sessions are either food based, involve giving presentations or practice in consultation skills. The practicals take place in the specialist food facilities and the clinical simulation suite.

It is expected that students undertake independent reading and self-study; this is aided by the use of Moodle, the Virtual Learning Environment in use at the University.

In addition students undertake 3 periods of practical training in NHS Dietetics departments in Wales. Full preparation is given prior to the placements and students are supported and visited during the placements by Dietetic Academic staff.

All students are allocated a personal tutor who offers pastoral support and guides the student through personal development planning.

Assessment

Each module is assessed by examination and/or assignment. All the modules are externally assessed. The clinical training placements have to be successfully completed to proceed and graduate.

Employability & Careers​

Dietitians normally begin their career in the National Health Service where they progress to the main clinical grades. The opportunity exists for specialisation in various aspects of dietetics by means of post-registration education. In addition there are opportunities for dietitians to be involved in health education/promotion, education, research and journalism.

Collaborative links

London-based dietitians play both a strategic and operational role in developing and running the course, and are also prospective employers of our graduates.

Moving to one campus

Between 2016 and 2020 we're investing £125 million in the London Metropolitan University campus, moving all of our activity to our current Holloway campus in Islington, north London. This will mean the teaching location of some courses will change over time.

Whether you will be affected will depend on the duration of your course, when you start and your mode of study. The earliest moves affecting new students will be in September 2017. This may mean you begin your course at one location, but over the duration of the course you are relocated to one of our other campuses. Our intention is that no full-time student will change campus more than once during a course of typical duration.

All students will benefit from our move to one campus, which will allow us to develop state-of-the-art facilities, flexible teaching areas and stunning social spaces.

Dietitians are highly qualified registered Healthcare Professionals (HCPs) who are concerned with optimising the health and well-being of individuals and groups through diet and nutrition.

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.

Accreditation

Graduates are eligible to apply for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).

Clinical Placement

To comply with HCPC registration requirements, you must complete three clinical placements, which must be undertaken in an approved hospital or community dietetics departments.

Placements will be allocated centrally and you may be placed anywhere throughout Scotland for each of your three placements.

Progression to Masters

An MSc dissertation can be undertaken following successful completion of the PgD. This can be either part or full time, and costs vary depending on time between graduation and commencement of MSc project.

Employment Opportunities

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.

Employment can either be found in a clinical setting, usually within the NHS, or in NHS community practices. Dieticians also find employment in many other related fields including research, the food industry, consultancy and private practice, social services, media, health education and health promotion. However, the majority of graduates from the programme will initially be employed as NHS hospital-based dietitians.

Current employment rates are good with most graduates who are prepared to work throughout the UK being employed within six months of graduation.
