The BSc Nutrition and Dietetics (Hons) course at the University of Surrey has been responsible for training dietitians since the University was granted its Charter in 1966.


What you will study

The BSc Nutrition and Dietetics (Hons) course at the University of Surrey has been specifically designed for students with a strong interest in food, people, science and medicine, who wish to use their knowledge to help prevent and treat disease as a registered dietitian.

Dietetics involves translating nutritional science and information about food into practical dietary advice. This may be aimed at the general public to promote health, or in a clinical environment to treat a wide range of medical disorders.

You’ll learn how food intake and dietary requirements can be altered by illness, and how to apply therapeutic diets to treat disease. The course will give you the knowledge and skills to respond to the diverse needs of patients, families and carers within a variety of settings.

Professional Training placements

A Professional Training placement provides you with the opportunity to develop your professional, academic and personal potential, equipping you to be adaptable, resilient, globally minded, confident, entrepreneurial and digitally savvy in the workplace. These qualities are widely recognised by employers and many of our students are offered employment on graduation by their placement provider.
