About

This four-year integrated Dietetics master’s course from Queen Margaret University will give you the theoretical understanding and practical skills that you will need to build a rewarding career as a dietitian. Practice placements are an integral part of the course and allow students to put their theoretical knowledge into practice.

Overview

Dietetics is a fascinating field that focuses on the management and prevention of nutrition-related disorders at an individual, group and population level. Dietitians are the only regulated health professionals that assess, diagnose and treat dietary and nutrition-related problems at an individual and wider public health level.

What you'll study

In Year One you will study a range of modules that provide you with the fundamental knowledge, principles and concepts that underpin the practice of dietetics. You will be introduced to the role of the dietitian, the role of food in health, human physiology, genetics and biochemistry. You will develop skills in communication, information technology and academic study skills. Students are invited to begin to engage in our peer-mentoring scheme, which provides additional support during the transition to university life.

In Year Two you will continue to develop your academic study skills and further develop your knowledge and understanding of the concepts relating to health and nutrition, when beginning to integrate biological and social sciences. You will undertake your first practice placement block. This will consist of two weeks on campus and two weeks within a Scottish health and social care setting.

Year Three develops your knowledge and communication skills further, begins to have a more applied focus and is more clinically orientated. This helps to prepare you for your second practice placement block (12 weeks duration) within various health and social care sectors across Scotland.

Year Four provides you with an opportunity to reflect on and consolidate what you have learnt on your placement at the end of Year Three. It allows you to undertake an individual research-based project to develop your knowledge and skills in this area. You will undertake your third and final placement block (12 weeks duration) within various health and social care sectors across Scotland.
