About

The MSc Dietetics degree offered at the Robert Gordon University you will be a registered health professional who uses knowledge about food, science and the human body in health and disease to educate and give practical advice to patients, colleagues, clients, carers and the general public. You will have the ability to work with patients to change lives, and contribute to the welfare of society.

Overview

At the Robert Gordon University studying the MSc Dietetics will allow you to extend your competence, knowledge and skills beyond those required of an entry-level practitioner in order to enhance your employability and prospects, and support the public health agenda.

You will develop skills in empowering individuals, groups and communities to change diet and lifestyle behaviours, and will practice your skills through simulated and inter-professional learning opportunities. Uniquely, you will have the chance to select an elective module, and to earn additional qualifications as you complete the course.

Job Prospects

The Master of Dietetics course (awaiting approval) has been developed in response to current policy and social directives, identified organisational challenges of employers across the public, private and third sectors and in recognition of graduate needs in meeting workplace demands.

By completing this course, you will possess knowledge, skills and competencies beyond those normally expected at the threshold of registered practice, and you can demonstrate to potential employers that you have the ability to positively influence strategic professional practice and support government policy and work to standards of accredited bodies, which is integral to the professional philosophy of the course.
