Graduate Diploma of Nutrition

About This Masters Degree

Course Description

About the program

Bond University’s Graduate Diploma of Nutrition enables students and practitioners from various health backgrounds to develop advanced knowledge and skills relevant to the professional practice of a nutritionist.

Building on undergraduate skills in health and related sciences, the Graduate Diploma explores the chemistry and composition of food, as it relates to human nutrition as well as the assessment and diagnosis of the nutrition status of individuals and populations. The Graduate Diploma aims to develop competence in effective nutrition communication and counselling while broadly examining population nutrition issues from a socio-ecological perspective.

In addition, graduates of this degree will have high level creative, analytical and data synthesis skills to investigate problems and develop solutions in clinical nutrition, nutrition-related chronic disease management, food service management and public health nutrition practice.

Successful graduates from the Graduate Diploma are well-placed to progress to further studies in the Master of Nutrition and Dietetic Practice to become qualified as a dietitian. Subjects completed in the Graduate Diploma are credited to the Master program.
