About

The BSc Human Nutrition and Dietetics (Hons) degree at Cardiff Metropolitan University contains two major elements: The academic component based on campus and clinical training, which occurs in three separate places within the course. 

Overview

The BSc Human Nutrition and Dietetics (Hons) degree at Cardiff Metropolitan University employs a range of teaching methods throughout the programme. We begin to build skills in dietetics from the first year with an emphasis on nutritional assessment and reflective skills.

Visits into the professional NHS setting during this year will help learners to develop a professional understanding of the role. In the second year we use case studies and kitchen practicals to teach dietetics therapy.

In addition we simulate consultations and group teaching sessions in order to build communication skills. During the first year students participate in inter-professional learning. They also undertake in depth research into a chosen topic to complete their dissertation, which they disseminate in a poster presentation at the end of the course.
