Throughout your studies, you’ll gain an understanding of the conditions where nutrition plays a significant role in disease management. You'll develop the knowledge to provide nutrition and dietetic care for individuals, groups and populations who have or already are at risk of developing long-term health conditions.

There's a two-week placement in Year 1, a 12-week placement in Year 2 and a 14-week placement in Year 3 that normally includes a public health nutrition component. Your work will primarily be in National Health Service (NHS) organisations in London and your performance will be assessed as part of your degree.
