There is a growing demand worldwide for highly trained graduates in the field of clinical nutrition and health for positions in the health services, local government, food industries and research and development. Countries all over the world recognise the important role nutrition plays in improving health and preventing disease and have prioritised nutrition and diet within their national health plans.

Most countries worldwide have identified a need to increase the capacity of their nutrition workforce, but few have the resources to provide this in their own country beyond undergraduate level.

The MSc Clinical Nutrition and Health is designed to address this priority. It is aimed at medical doctors, graduates of life sciences (with a strong underpinning in physiology, biochemistry, microbiology, health psychology, food science) and degree level health professionals who want to improve their knowledge of clinical nutrition.

The programme will be of particular interest to overseas students for whom this specialist field of study may not be available in their country of origin. The MSc research project develops your research skills, scientific writing skills and consolidates your knowledge base in clinical nutrition and health.

Research

Examples of Research in Food, Nutrition and Dietetics underpinning the MSc programme:
-Measuring the diet quality of population groups using dietary pattern analysis and a diet quality index. The use of this to inform and to evaluate food and nutrition policy.
-Investigating the effect of gestational diabetes during pregnancy on growth outcome for infants.
-Assessing infant feeding and macronutrient intake and its effect on early growth patterns.
-Food Science Research interest include microbial metabolites, food safety and risk assessment, food borne diseases, environmental microbiology and food composition and nutrients.
-Research undertaken on Patient-centred Outcomes in Dietary Research.
-Research undertaken on Secondary Prevention of Stroke and research into optimising nutrition of older people with dementia.

Employment Opportunities

Career opportunities in this area include working in clinical nutrition, public health, local government, the food industry, food companies, university and industry research departments, as well as further study.

The MSc Clinical Ophthalmology and Vision Research (COVR) is designed to provide eye care professionals with enhanced knowledge and skills in clinical decision-making as the basis for the safe and effective management of a wide range of ocular conditions.

Primary eye care is rapidly expanding to include diagnosing and treating ocular disease in close collaboration with secondary and tertiary care providers. For optometrists, these new roles are in addition to their traditional role of examining eyes and determining the refractive prescription.

The management of eye conditions is normally carried out either independently or in partnership with medical practitioners. These new roles involve taking on greater responsibilities, and require additional specialised academic training.

Depending on professional requirements and personal interest, you can tailor your MSc according to speciality, leading to a named degree on completion of the dissertation:
-MSc Clinical Ophthalmology and Vision Research (Generic)
-MSc Clinical Ophthalmology and Vision Research (Diabetes)
-MSc Clinical Ophthalmology and Vision Research (Therapeutics)

The programme is designed to allow you to advance your clinical and academic skills as well as-to obtain research experience. If you wish to pursue research within academia to achieve a higher qualification you will also find the programme an ideal preparation for subsequent studies, for example, towards a PhD degree.

The programme consists of core modules, which are compulsory and must be taken by all students, and optional modules, which can be chosen based on personal interest and professional requirement. A substantial component of the programme is the research project, which makes up a third of the programme.

This programme can also be taken part time - for more information please view the web-page:

Programme Structure

The programmes use a modular structure, including lectures and tutorials in trimesters A and B, and clinical training and Research Project over trimesters A, B and C.

All three programmes consist of core modules, which are compulsory and must be taken by all students, and optional modules, which can be chosen based on personal interest and professional requirement. A substantial component of each programme is the research project, which makes up a third of the programme.

Assessment

A range of assessment methods will be used including formal exams, case reports, oral presentations and clinical assessments as well as assessment of the research project/MSc dissertation.

Employment Opportunities

The programme offers primary eye care practitioners, such as optometrists, the opportunity to advance their clinical career and / or to obtain research experience e.g. as a preparation for further postgraduate studies at PhD level.

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.
