About This Masters Degree

Course Description

About the program
Bond University’s Master of Nutrition and Dietetic Practice is the first program of its kind in Australia.

As the only Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) Level 9 Masters Degree (Extended) dietetics program, it places a distinct emphasis on developing evidence-based practitioners with extensive participation in dietetics practice in various contexts both locally and abroad, as well as possessing research experience.

You will have the opportunity to develop specialist skills related to the practice of nutrition and dietetics through extensive professional practice placements.

A unique feature of this program is the completion of an international placement. This experience develops your skills in international nutrition and dietetic practice, including the development of cultural competency.

You will also engage in projects and opportunities that focus on the entrepreneurial practice of nutrition and dietetics to develop leadership, management, media and marketing skills.
