The Master of Nutrition and Dietetics provides professional education for dietitians and nutritionists. It builds on major concepts from the study of human biochemistry and physiology to discuss the roles of all nutrients, nutritional contents of food and diet in health and disease. The program includes all the units of study to ensure you reach dietetics competence including public health, medical nutrition therapy, food service management, communication, management, and research and evaluation.
Sydney advantage Sydney has a long history in educating dietitians and nutritionists with the first postgraduate diploma course commencing in 1967. Our course draws on the expertise of researchers and clinicians in nutrition science, public health, medicine and dietetics. Being in central Sydney gives us the advantage of calling on external guest lecturers. We have access to members of the science and medical faculties and use leading university teaching hospitals (Sydney and rural if preferred) for placement experiences. Our master’s program offers a full semester of supervised research training that meets the requirement to enter a PhD.
Program expectations Our academics teach from a research-driven base but understand the importance of the translation of the research into evidence-based dietetic practice. The course will equip you with the skills for life-long professional development as a dietitian/nutritionist whether you want to work in the clinical or public health fields, in a hospital or primary care private practice, in a community health facility or a research organisation.
The course is accredited by the Dietitians Association of Australia (DAA).
Please note that places in this course are limited and subject to strict enrolment quotas.
